Trisha rose to fame in Telugu with Varsham movie. Her oomph and glamour in the movie drove the youth mad and from then there is no looking back for her in Tollywood. In her prime, she almost paired up with every star hero here.

  • Personal Life

    Trisha Krishnan was born and brought up in Chennai. She completed her Sacred Heart Matriculation School in Church Park, Chennai and later graduated with BBA degree at the Ethiraj College for Women in Chennai. She is an active entrant in to modeling during her college days and won ‘Miss Salem’ and ‘Miss Chennai’ beauty pageants in 1999.

  • Career

    Trisha aspired to become a criminal psychologist but she also harbored the hopes of pursuing a career in films. She first donned the grease paint for Falguni Pathak's music video "Meri Chunar Udd Udd Jaye" as Ayesha Takia's friend.
    Very few people know Trisha began her career with an unaccredited role in Jodi movie. Her first Tamil movie with full length role is Lesa Lesa and her second is Enakku 20 Unakku 18 but both the movies were delayed in production and her third film, Mounam Pesiyadhe opposite Surya Sivakumar, thus became her first release. She also acted in three other Tamil movies which include Saamy opposite Vikram. In 2003, she acted in her first Telugu movie, Nee Manasu Naku Telusu which was a failure at the box office.

    2004 was a monumental year in Trisha’s filmography. That year she rose to stardom with Varsham movie opposite Prabhas and from there, there is no looking back for her. In 2005, she had two releases, Nuvvosthanante Nenodhantana and Athadu which continued her success streak.

    2006 was a forgettable year to Trisha in Telugu. She had three releases that year, Pournami, Bangaram, and Stalin all of them failed to yield success at the box office.  Besides being a glam doll, she even scored brownie points with the audience for her roles in Aaduvari Maatalaku Ardhale Verule. Some of other hits include Krishna, King, Bujjigadu, Namo Venkatesa.

    After 2010, her career graph began to dip in Telugu. She acted in 
    three movies – Theenmaar, Bodyguard and Dammu but none of them worked at box office and she became work-less in Telugu since then except RUM and untitled film of Balayya. RUM was halted midway due to financial troubles.

  • Trivia

    • Trisha wanted to become a criminal psychologist at the beginning of her career but ended up as an actress.
    • Trisha won several beauty pageants like Miss Madras, Miss India and 2001 and Beautiful Smile Award.
    • During her early days of her career, a video of a girl taking bath was leaked and created sensation. The girl exactly resembled Trisha. The incident haunted Trisha for a long time and later it was confirmed that the video is of another girl but not the actress.
