Amala Paul is an Indian film actress who mainly appears in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu films. After appearing in a supporting role in the Malayalam-language film Neelathamara, Amala became noted after playing the title role in Mynaa, receiving critical acclaim for her work.
In 2013, Amala achieved her first commercial success in Telugu cinema. Her first release in 2013, V. V. Vinayak’s directorial Naayak, opposite Ram Charan Teja, went on to be one of the biggest critical as well as commercial successes of the year. Her next film was Puri Jagannadh’s romantic comedy Iddarammayilatho opposite Allu Arjun. Upon release, Amala’s performance was appreciated by the critics. Sangeetha Devi Dundroo of The Hindu commented: “Amala Paul manages to pull off a character that traverses a thin line between being naïve and downright silly. We wish we saw more of her.” Another reviewer, Sasidhar AS from The Times of India commented: “Amala Paul’s characterisation is a delight, and she plays Komali so effectively that you’ll be left wondering who else could have done the role better than her. She was a perfect choice to play a traditional Telugu girl.” She was later seen in A. L. Vijay’s action entertainer Thalaivaa, opposite Vijay, as a police officer. Her last release of the year was the Malayalam film Oru Indian Pranayakatha. The film was a blockbuster at the Kerala box office and she received several awards for her character Irena, including the SIIMA Award for Best Actress – Malayalam consecutively for two years.
