Early life[edit]

Indraja was born in Chennai into a Telugu speaking, Carnatic musical family. She is the eldest of three sisters, the other two being Bharathi and Sobha. During school days, she won prizes in singing and drama competitions. A trained classical singer and dancer, she learned Kuchipudi dance form Madhavapeddi Murthy.[1] She was preparing to be a journalist.[3][4]


Personal Life[edit]

Indraja is married to stand up actor Mohammed Absar on 7 September 2005. The couple is having a daughter.[5]

Cinema[edit]

S. V. Krishna Reddy's Yamaleela catapulted her to instant stardom. The film ran for over a year.[1] She acted in Thadayam and Rajavin Parvaiyile but she has not been able to make much headway in Tamil movies, as both movies failed to make an impact at the box office.[1] She was also cast alongside Mohanlal in the 1999 film Ustaad and Mammootty in Chronic Bachelor.

She appeared as a female villain in the Telugu serial Sundarakanda, while also making a special appearance in Tamil serial Bhairavi.[when?] She acted in Sun TV's Serial Valli as Madhumitha Subbu (Madhu) as a female antagonist.
