Amala Paul Biography, Wiki

Amala Paul was born on October 26, 1991. She is an Indian actress who works in the South Indian film industry. After playing in supporting roles in the film Malayalam Neelathamara and Veerasekaran in Tamil, she received critical acclaim for portraying a controversial figure in the film Sindhu Samaveli.

Despite the failure of this film, Amala made a name for herself after playing the title role in Mynaa, receiving critical acclaim for her work.

Amala was born into a Christian family in Ernakulam, Kerala to Paul Varghese and Annice Paul. Her brother Abijith Paul has also appeared in films following Amala’s entry into the film industry.

After graduating from Nirmala Upper Secondary School in Aluva, she took a sabbatical to begin a career in film but has since joined St. Teresa’s College in Kochi, to pursue a B.A. degree in English.

Her father had been strictly against Amala pursuing an acting career but was forced to come to terms with her decision with her brother, Abijith Paul, firmly supporting her ambition.

She later claimed that she had the performing arts in her, revealing that her mother was a singer and her father did theater in college.

Amala had changed her onscreen name to Anakha, at the insistence of director Samy, who cited that another actress, Amala, had already made her name popular. However, after the failure of her 2011 film Sindhu Samaveli, she reverted to her birth name as she felt the replacement had brought her bad luck.

As early as 2011, while Amala was working on Deiva Thirumagal, she was romantically linked to director A. L. Vijay, but denied the couple were dating. On June 7, 2014, she got engaged to Vijay in Aluva in Kochi.

The couple were married on June 12, 2014 to Mayor Ramanathan Chettiar Hall, Chennai. In 2016, Amala and Vijay filed for divorce due to a disagreement between her and her in-laws over continuing her acting career. They got the divorce in 2017.

Amala Paul Career

Amala Paul, after finishing her Plus Two education, took a year out before planning to pursue engineering for further education. At the time, her modelling portfolio was spotted by noted Malayalam director Lal Jose who offered her a supporting role in his remake, Neelathamara (2009). Despite emerging a success, the film failed to attract any further offers, as she had anticipated. 

Amala Paul worked in Samy’s controversial Sindhu Samaveli (2010), portraying the role of Sundari, who has an illicit relationship with her father-in-law. The director of the film had previously drawn criticism for his depictions of illicit romances as well for assaulting his previous lead actress in a film, but Amala played down the issue citing that she had no problem with the director.

She was approached after the major portions of her next release, Mynaa were ready and signed on before listening to the entirety of the story, claiming that she was shocked but not upset with the controversial scenes which she heard later. Upon release, the film met with contrasting reviews, whilst some critics refused to give the film a rating, declaring their disgust at the film’s plot. 

Following the success of Mynaa, Amala became touted as the “new star of 2011” as she subsequently signed on to several prominent projects. She has signed six big budget films with established stars since, with two films opposite Vikram in Deiva Magan and a yet-to-be-titled Suseenthiran project.

She will then appear in the bilingual Vettai and its Telugu version Veta opposite leading actors Arya and Mahesh Babu under Linguswamy’s direction. Moreover, she has also signed the romantic musical Muppozhudhum Un Karpanai opposite Adharvaa and the Telugu film Oh My Friend which also features Siddharth and Amrita Rao.

Amala also has three smaller films in production, the first being her maiden Tamil assignment, Vikadakavi.
