Eswari Rao (also credited as Vijayashree in Kannada), is an Indian actress who has worked in Telugu,Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada films.[1][2]

Personal life[edit]

Eeswari is originally from Peddapuram, east godavari, Andhra pradesh but she is settled in Chennai. She is married to director L.Raja.[3]

Career[edit]

Easwari Rao's debut project was Kavithai Paadum Alaigal (1990) an obscure early 90's Tamil Film which never got released in theatres. She got her first major break in Raman Abdullah (1997), directed by Balu Mahendra. Offers poured in for the actress though she became selective and notably opted out of a project title Koottaali, as she felt the role was too glamorous. She went on to appear in Manoj Kumar's film, Guru Paarvai (1998) alongside Prakash Raj, Kushboo and Anju Aravind. Eeshwari also bagged a role in Bharathiraja's Siragugal Murivadhilai with Napoleon, although the film subsequently was shelved after pre-production.[4] In Appu (2000) Tamil film she portrayed as Prasanth's Sister. She received praise for her performance as Selvi in Kaala (2018) in which she starred alongside Rajinikanth.
