Sri Divya is an Indian film actress, who acts in Tamil and Telugu films. Sri Divya was born at Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. She has one sister, Sri Ramya, who also acts in Telugu and Tamil films. Sri Divya has studied at the Kendriya Vidyalaya.
Sri Divya started her career at the age of three and has acted as a child artist in nearly ten Telugu films. She has also acted in Telugu television serials. She made her debut as a heroine in the 2010 Telugu romance film Manasara, directed by Ravi Babu, but the film was a failure. Then she featured in the film Bus Stop (2012) directed by Maruthi, co-starring Prince, which was successful at the box office. It was followed by Mallela Theeram Lo Sirimalle Puvvu in which she played a lonely wife who falls in love with a writer. About her performance, The Hindu wrote, “she looks very charming; the cotton saris bring out the grace in her”. “Sri Divya epitomizes the character of an idealistic and independent woman. She did well and deserves applause”. “Sri Divya is a wonderful actress and she suits the role of Lakshmi”.
Her Tamil debut was Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam opposite Siva Karthikeyan, which was directed by Ponram. Sri Divya received very positive reviews from critics for her performance. Baradwaj Rangan wrote, “the actress is good. She knows the language, knows how to work a reaction shot, and she looks like she belongs in this milieu. It will be interesting to see what Tamil cinema makes of her”. The Times of India wrote, “But the real surprise is debutant Sri Divya, who, is expressive, and can lip-sync very well, which isn’t the case with most of our heroines today”. The New Indian Express wrote, “As Latha, debutant Sridivya emotes well, infusing the character with innocence, charm and naughtiness”.
Her upcoming films are Kaatu Malli, which was her first Tamil film, and Nagarpuram. She has also been signed up for the film Pencil.
