Meera Jasmine

Meera Jasmine is an Indian actress who primarily acts in the South cinema. Meera Jasmine never dreamt of being an actress and wanted to be a Doctor but Meera Jasmine’s story carries a real cinematic touch. From the Kuttapuzha village in Tiruvalla in Kerala to the top of the heap in Indian cinema, it is a long way indeed.

Meera Jasmine once had gone to watch the shooting of a film in Kuttapuzha. The director, Lohit Das noticed her and impulsively asked her to act as heroine in his next film, Soothradaran for which she won her first Filmfare Award.

At the time when it was difficult to find scripts with strong female characters, Meera is lucky to get substantial and meaningful roles. Meera Jasmine attained nation-wide fame with T. V. Chandran’s critically-acclaimed Padam Onnu Oru Vilapam in which she played a 15-year-old Muslim girl who was forced to marry an older man, for which she was awarded a State Award and the National Award in addition to several other awards.

Some of Meera Jasmine’s popular Telugu movies include Bhadra, Gudumba Shankar, Moksha, Pandhem Kodi, Gorintaku and Maharadhi.
