Fame called on Richa Pallod when she was a child. Following Lamhe (1991) and Pardes (1997), she made her debut in an adult role in Nuvve Kavali (2000) with Tarun. The story was about two friends who grow up to fall in love. The actress, who was born on 30th August 1980, won a Filmfare Best Telugu Actress Award.
Shahjahan (2001), a Tamil movie which saw her with Vijay, was a blockbuster. Alli Arjun (2002) didn’t do as well. She came back to Bollywood with Agnipankh (2004) and was lost in a large star cast.
Neal n Nikki (2005) saw her with Uday Chopra and Tanisha. Her role was not substantial as she was relegated to play Tanisha’s cousin. The movie was a flop. Something Something…Unnakum Ennakum (2006) saw her as Trisha’s best buddy. The movie enjoyed a good run in theaters.
In 2009, she will be venturing into Malayalam cinema with Daddy Cool which stars Mammootty, who will play her husband.
