Pranitha Subhash (born 17 October 1992) is an Indian actress who appears in South Indian language films.


Pranitha Subhash was born into a Kannadiga family. Her father is a physician and her mother, a gynecologist. They run a hospital in Bengaluru. She is the only child of her parents.


Pranitha Subhash made her debut in films with the 2010 Kannada film Porki, a remake of the Telugu blockbuster film Pokiri, opposite Darshan. After the success of Porki, she refused several offers from Kannada films and became choosy about her projects before signing the Telugu film Baava, a love story where she starred opposite Siddharth.[1] She was praised unanimously for her portrayal of a Telugu village belle in the film. She then went on to appear in her first Tamil film, Udhayan starring Arulnithi.[2]

She was then signed up for her second Tamil project Saguni opposite Karthi which released in both Tamil and Telugu languages. Saguni was her biggest release: a film that released in a record 1,150 theaters all over the world and 450 theaters alone in Telugu language. It was the highest Tamil movie to do so after Rajnikanth's Robot.

She then appeared in Jarasandha and Bheema Theeradalli, a real life story of a naxalite, both opposite Duniya Vijay. The latter saw massive success in Karnataka. Pranitha was praised for her portrayal of Bheemavva by critics and won a Filmfare nomination for the same.[3] Post this, she appeared in the Telugu language film Attarintiki Daredi which released in September 2013. It went on to become the highest grossing Telugu film of all time. During the same time, she worked on a Kannada film Brahma opposite Upendra. She also worked on Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda starring veterans like Raveena Tandon and Mohan Babu in which she was paired opposite Manchu Manoj. Both the films fared well.
