Latest hot photos gallery of Mamtha Mohandas, the South Indian film actress and playback singer. She debuted in the 2002 Malayalam film Mayookham, directed by Hariharan. Although the film did not do well at the box-office, Mamtha attracted the attention for her sensitive portrayal of Indira.
Subsequently, she acted alongside Suresh Gopi in the films Adbutham (2006) and Lanka (2006) and alongside Jayaram in Madhuchandralekha (2006). She was later roped into play heroine in Keerthi Chakra with Mohanlal, but opted out later due to scheduling conflicts. She created controversy after the release of the movie Lanka.
Later that year, she debuted in the Tamil film industry, starring in the Karu Pazhaniappan-directed film, Sivappathigaram opposite Vishal Krishna, which turned out to be an average grosser only.
In 2007 then, she eventually stepped into the Telugu film industry as well as she appeared in a supporting role in the film Yamadonga, directed by SS Rajamouli. The film became one of the biggest hits of the year. She had lent her voice for a couple of songs in this film too. In 2008, she appeared in 7 films, predominantly in Telugu-language films. Her first release was her debut Kannada film Gooli. She then starred her first in the film Krishnarjuna, essaying the lead female role finally, which however did not well at the box office. Victory was her next assignment as lead actress, but that film also failed at the box office, follwoing which she appeared in a cameo role in her only Tamil release that year, Kuselan, alongside Tamil superstar Rajinikanth. Three more Telugu releases featured Mamtha, including Homam, directed by JD Chakravarthy and Srinu Vaitla’s King (2008 film) opposite Nagarjuna. In both the film she also worked as a playback singer, singing several songs, gaining great applause for both her acting and singing.
In 2009, she made a comeback to Tamil and Malayalam as she starred in the comedy film Guru En Aalu alongside Madhavan, and the thriller film Passenger, sharing screen space with Dileep and Sreenivasan, respectively. Whilst the former had an average run at the box office, the latter was declared a surprise sleeper hit in Malayalam. She is currently working on three Malayalam projects, Sathyan Anthikad’s Katha Thudarunnu with Jayaram, Musafir with Rahman and Ragupati Raghava Raja Ram with Prithviraj, and one Telugu film, Kedi with Nagarjuna.
Besides acting, Mamtha is known as an acclaimed playback singer in Indian films as well. Mamtha, who is trained in Carnatic and Hindustani music, first sang playback in the Telugu film Rakhee, singing the title song, under Devi Sri Prasad’s direction, making her debut in the Telugu film industry as a singer, before making her acting debut in Telugu. She went on to win the 2007 Filmfare Best Telugu Female Playback Singer Award for that song.
