The first on my list is Shraddha Srinath. Shraddha is one of the telugu heroines who has featured in films such as Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam films. This beautiful lady was born in Udhampur. His dad worked as an officer in the Indian Army while her mother was a respected school teacher. After her graduation at Army School RK Puram, Shraddha decided to pursue Law at Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies. 


Shraddha was shortlisted to act as the female lead in the Kannada film. The film featuring Shraddha, however, failed to take off. Instead, Shraddha got favors in the eyes of other digital commercials. So she was shortlisted to feature in a second Malayalam film called Kohinoor. This film came to light in September 2015, and Vinay Govind directed it. 

The film that didn’t take off (Kannada) came back to light in May 2016, but with a different director – Pawan Kumar. Pawan Kumar is the same guy who presided over the New York Indian Film Festival. This film was welcomed by many, and this made it famous.

The second on my list is Shraddha Kapoor sharing the first name with our first actress on the list. Kapoor made her debut with Teen Patti featuring Madhavan and Bachchan. In their house, she is the youngest. Her aunt – Padmini Kahapure, is also a trendy actress known by many. 

Schooling and Career

As I said, Kapoor made her first debut in Bollywood in the film Teen Patti that featured Amitabh Bachchan. She attended Jamnabai Narsee School but cleared her high school in Boston. 

She realized her personal legend – acting when she was still very young. That is why Kapoor decided to take some acting lessons when she was in Boston. Mohit Tugnait later guided her at home. Kapoor and her friends Barry John and Abel, did some workshops together under the direction of Leena Yadav. 

She even became more popular when she featured in Elle Magazine in 2011. Kapoor got the ambassador role of the big cosmetic giant – Lakme. Also, if Teen Patti didn’t take off, she was still noticed by people who may have needed her services. So she signed a three-year deal with Yash Raj Films, and she should feature in the Upcoming film – Luv Ka The End. 

Because she is still a child, people like comparing her with her aunt and dad, but she is yet to go on her own and leave the presence of her dad.
