Saloni Aswani (born as Vandana) is a model-turned-actress who primarily features in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi Cinema. Saloni was always interested in acting but her father was against it. Without her father’s knowledge Saloni created a portfolio and sent to the modelling agencies and was selected as a model for few TV commercial ads.
Her modelling eventually led her to grab the limelight and the actress made her on screen debut with Hindi movie “Dil Pardes Hogaya”(2003). It was the director of that movie who rechristened as Saloni. Her Telugu cinematic debut was with Sumanth’s “Dhana 51”. Her biggest hit in the lead role is SS Rajamouli’s “Maryada Ramanna”.
