Although today Amulya is one of the more well-known younger generation actresses of the Kannada screen, she had actually started off as a child artist in 2001, when she was just 7 years old, in the film “Parva” which had one of the leading actors of the time, Vishnuvardhan playing the lead role in that film. In fact, it took her another 14 years after her childhood debut, to enter films as a lead artist. That was in the film “Cheluvina Chittara” in 2007, which had a reasonable success at the box office. Later on, between the years 2008 to 2013 she achieved a fair amount of commercial success in the movies “Chaitrada Chandrama”, “Naanu Nanna Kanasu” and “
”, though her next 4 or 5 films did not do well in the box office, although her individual performances were well appreciated.
A string of indifferent results at the box office made her ponder about her future, although she could realize that it was not her performance that was to blame. She took a break for about two years, and chose to appear in the film “Shravani Subramanya” opposite Ganesh. The film was a big hit and her performance drew rave reviews from critics. This was followed in the same year, by a significant recognition for her talents when she was given the 'Golden Queen' title by her co-star Ganesh, in the film “Shravani Subramanya”. In fact, that performance also won for her, her firstFilmfare Award,for the Best Actress. After a tumultuous 2013 her appearances thinned down a bit. She had only one film in 2014, and for her first film of 2015, “
”, she was paired opposite Ganesh for a third time, and once again her performance was praised by critics, many comparing this with her award winning performance in “Shravani Subramanya” In fact, she is currently filming for at least another 3 films in 2015, and seems to be well on her way to grabbing a significant spot as a leading lady in the Kannada film industry.
