Career

Amala Paul, after finishing her Plus Two education, took a year out before planning to pursue engineering for further education. At the time, her modeling portfolio was spotted by noted Malayalam director Lal Jose who offered her a supporting role in his remake, Neelathamara (2009). Despite emerging a success, the film failed to attract any further offers, as she had anticipated.

Amala Paul worked in Samy’s controversial Sindhu Samaveli (2010), portraying the role of Sundari, who has an illicit relationship with her father-in-law. The director of the film had previously drawn criticism for his depictions of illicit romances as well for assaulting his previous lead actress in a film, but Amala played down the issue citing that she had no problem with the director. She was approached after the major portions of her next release, Mynaa were ready and signed on before listening to the entirety of the story, claiming that she was shocked but not upset with the controversial scenes which she heard later. Upon release, the film met with contrasting reviews, whilst some critics refused to give the film a rating, declaring their disgust at the film’s plot.

Following the success of Mynaa, Amala became touted as the “new star of 2011” as she subsequently signed on to several prominent projects. She has signed six big-budget films with established stars since, with two films opposite Vikram in Deiva Magan and a yet to be titled Suseenthiran project.

Moreover, she has also signed the romantic musical Muppozhudhum Un Karpanai opposite Adharvaa and the Telugu film Oh My Friend which also features Siddharth and Amrita Rao. Amala also has three smaller films in production, the first being her maiden Tamil assignment, Vikadakavi.
