Aishwariya (born 21 April 1971) is an Indian actress who has acted in Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu movies.[1] She is the daughter of popular actress Lakshmi.[2]

Career[edit]

Aishwarya's first film to be released was Oliyampukal (1990), followed by Mamagaru (1991), Rasukutty (1992) and Meera (1992). She played a double role in Butterflies (1993) and also in Gardish (1993), which was a remake of the Malayalam movie Kireedam. Early in her career, she notably turned down opportunities to work with Mani Ratnam in Roja (1992) and Thiruda Thiruda (1993).[3]

Following her marriage in 1994, Aishwarya quit the film industry and chose to prioritise bringing up a family. However her marriage fell apart and she became addicted to taking drugs as a result of her husband's addiction, which made it difficult for her to re-enter the film industry after her divorce in 1996. After undergoing a rehabilitation process, she chose to continue her education in computer science and joined to work with the NIIT in 1997 and prioritised her work as a software engineer.[3] She then accepted an offer to be a part of a television show produced by Suresh Chandra Menon, after being convinced by her friend, actress Revathi. After a four year sabbatical from films as a result of her marriage, childbirth and divorce, Aishwarya made a comeback in Parthiban's Housefull (1999) portraying an inspector in charge of the bomb disposal squad.[4] She continued to portray supporting roles in films such as Suyamvaram (1999), Sathyameva Jayathe (2000) and Narasimham (2000) during the turn of the century.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Born as Shanta Meena Bhaskar, to Tamil father K Bhaskaran and half Tamil and Telugu actress Lakshmi, she has a half-sister from her mother's third marriage. She was married to Tanveer in 1994 and they were divorced in 1996. The couple have a daughter, Anaina, born in 1995.[5][6]
