About Me

Suvaluxmi is an Indian actress who predominantly appeared in Tamil films. She graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Laws from the University of Calcutta in 1998. She was passionate about Indian classical and folk dance forms and performed the art forms across regional shows. Her performance on stage was noticed by film director Satyajit Ray, who cast her as the female lead in the film adaptation of his story Uttoran. The film, which was completed by his son Sandip Ray following Satayajit Ray's demise, won the National Film Award for Best Screenplay in 1994 and was screened in film festivals around the world, including at Cannes. She made her debut in Tamil films with Aasai in 1995, directed by Vasanth.  The film won positive reviews and performed well at the box office. Her second film, Agathiyan's Gokulathil Seethai (1996) opposite Karthik, also performed well commercially and earned the actress critical acclaim. Despite the success of her first two films, Suvaluxmi's subsequent films failed to expand her initial popularity. In the late 1990s, she appeared in several Tamil films, though her roles and the performance of her films failed to get acclaim. In 2001, she opted to quit films and pursue a career as a lawyer and finally signed up to appear in Ponvannan's critically acclaimed film Nadhi Karaiyinile in 2003 for which she won positive reviews. Her kannada debut movie with Krishna Leele, debut movie in Malayalam was Anuragakottaram and Durga is her first movie in Telugu. She later married scientist Swagato Banerjee and travelled to live in Geneva then San Francisco with her husband. Since her departure from the film industry, Suvaluxmi practised as a natural artist and graduated with a degree of Masters of Fine Arts in Illustration during 2013 from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her upcoming film is Yen Endru Kadhal Enben.
