Satya Krishnan was born in Hyderabad, Telanaga, India. Satya Krishnan is an Indian actress, who has predominantly appeared in Telugu-language films. She worked as a hotel management professional and entered the film industry with the film Dollar Dreams. Mostly starring in supporting roles, she is probably best known for her performance as Anitha in the 2004 Sekhar Kammula-directed Telugu film Anand.


Satya Krishnan is from Hyderabad where she completed her studies.[1] She did a course in Hotel Management and worked at Taj group of hotels in Hyderabad.[1] Her dream was to be an air hostess.[2]

She entered the film industry in 2000 with the film Dollar Dreams directed by Sekhar Kammula. Later she got married and took up a job at BNP Paribas Bank at Punjagutta. After four years, Sekhar Kammula again approached her with a role in his film Anand.[1] She quit her job and began working full-time as an actress.[3] She said that her character in Anand "is very close to my real life character".[1] She won a Nandi Award for her role in the film.[4]

She was also seen in other movies including the superhit Bommarillu, Premante Inte, Venkat Kuchipudi's Modati Cinema, Ullasamga Utsahamga and Vinayakudu. She played a lead role for the first time in her career in Mental Krishna[3][5] but the film was not well received.[2][6] In its review for the film Lovely, The Hindu wrote: "Satya Krishna ... gets some of the best lines in the film and we wish her role was better etched out. She runs the risk of being typecast in firebrand kind of roles though".[7]
