Abhinaya is an Indian film actress and model who is hearing and speech impaired. She made her acting debut in Naadodigal (2009) and went on to reprise the role in its Telugu and Kannada remakes.
Abhinaya's father played a security officer's role in the Telugu film Stalin, directed by A. R. Murugadoss. Murugadoss noticed Abhinaya, who had accompanied her father, and suggested her name to M. Sasikumar. Sasikumar later cast her in Naadodigal, which was directed by Samuthirakani. The success of Naadodigal and critical acclaim for Abhinaya's performance led him to cast her in the Telugu remake Shambo Shiva Shambo, while she was signed to play the same role in its Kannada remake Hudugaru as well. She won two Filmfare Awards for her performances in Naadodigal and Shambo Shiva Shambo the following year. She was cast in an important role in Easan (2010) directed by Sasikumar. In 2011, A. R. Murugadoss signed her to play a supporting role alongside Suriya in the flim 7aam Arivu. She is currently shooting for two films, The Reporter and Telugu film Dammu in which she played the eldest sister of Jr. NTR's character.
