Its Amala Paul's Birthday

Its a big day for Amala Paul today, as the actor turns 21. And theres plenty to celebrate, besides the milestone birthday. This year, she had back-to-back releases, most of which have tasted box-office success in Tamil, there was Vettai, in which she starred opposite Arya, the teen caper Kaadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Eppadi with Siddharth and Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal. In Telugu, she had Love Failure. Amala Pauls Malayalam films this year have been Akashathinte Niram, her first art house project, and Run Babby Run opposite Mohanlal, a dream opportunity for any young actor for sure. The film was critically acclaimed and a commercial success as well.

On her birthday, the actor has thanked everyone who supported her and says she wants to establish herself as an artiste who can do any kind of role. I have been recognised as an actor, only thanks to my directors, producers, co-stars and of course, fans. Without their support, this would not have been possible, says the birthday girl, whos spending the day with her parents and other family members.

Amala is currently working on Nimirndhu Nil in Tamil, besides Janda Pai Kapiraju, Iddarammayilathoand Naayak in Telugu. This young girl from Ernakulam has indeed done very well for herself . She took a break after high school to try her luck in films, but went back to college to pursue an arts degree; shes currently in her third year, and juggles films and academics quite efficiently. Amala had no beginners luck for her early films, after she was noticed by Malayalam director Lal Jose and given a supporting role in Neelathamara, went largely unnoticed. Her role in the controversial Sindhu Samaveli didnt help either, instead earned public outrage.

Then, along came Mynaa, by Prabhu Solomon and Amala Pauls fortune changed overnight. She won critical acclaim for her role and the offers began to flow in. She did the Malayalam remake of Naadodigaland then signed Deiva Thirumagal and Bejawada which starred Naga Chaitanya. She has not looked back since and is well on her way to stardom at the age of 21. Heres wishing this pretty girl a very happy birthday.
