Bhavana Rao, the Bengaluru beauty of ‘Vaarevah’ and ‘Gaalipata’ rechristen her name as Shikha for the films in other languages. The actress who is born in Shimoga and has studied in Bengaluru is a Bharatnatyam exponent and a graduate in Human Resources Development, who started her career as an anchor in Asianet and Zee TV channels. She is recognised for a song with the background of Bharatnatyam and has later acted in movies like Mayadantha Male, Holidays, Vaare Vaah, Gagana Chukki Kannada films. However, the results were not as expected by her.
Bhavana Rao turned Shikha in a Tamil movie ‘Mamminangal’ where she did the role of the mother of an ill child has earned her good remarks. She has earlier acted in films like ‘Padhun Partha’ and ‘Kola Kolaya Mandirak’. But the lead role that she got was in ‘Mamminangal’. So Bhavana Rao to the audience of Kannada films is at present in bilingual ‘Attahasa’, which is a film based on the fugitive Veerappan by AMR Ramesh. We hope to see more of the actress in the near future. So we wish luck and best wishes to the actress for her career ahead.
