Bhanupriya is one of the most cherished characters of South India. Born in Mangalore, Bhansali is the most prominent female protagonist of the Telugu film industry. Bhanupriya was named after her mother’s maiden name, Bheema, but she is better known by her first name. She is known for her delicate features, her expressive performances, and the depth of her character’s humanity. Bhanupriya Biography traces the path of Bhansali throughout her life, until her untimely death at the age of thirty-three.
Bhanupriya was born in Mangalore, initially as a shy child who hid her artistic nature behind thick glasses. Her father, fond of melodrama and sentimental plays, encouraged Bhanupriya’s passion for acting from a very early age and gave her an early start in small theaters in Mangalore. However, Bhanupriya did not pursue her acting career in films, opting instead for smaller roles in Kondattu-themed plays, and appearing in some TV serials. But Bhanupriya’s rise to prominence in the Telugu film industry was unplanned, and her first two films were largely forgettable.

Eventually, Bhanupriya found her way into the world of Hollywood, playing opposite Aishwarya Rai in Kannagi (based on the novel of the same name), and in Shankaracharya Kumar’s Triple Pack (also based on the same novel). Bhanupriya finally garnered three states and awards for her role in Triplicity: The Godfather, Shankaracharya Kumar’s Mankatha (also featuring Srikanth), and Randa Kumar’s Baahubali (which were later made into a blockbuster movie). But it was Bhanupriya’s association withollywood that would earn her the most respect in the industry. While working on a remake of an old Hindi movie, producers Mani Ratnam and Neeraj Akala approached Bhanupriya to do the voice of the girl who had appeared in the original story, prompting Bhanupriya to dub her ‘Neeta’ – that is, the girl from the book.
Bhanupriya’s association with the film industry came to an abrupt end when she was declined the role of malaria in the popular Kamal Amrohi film starring Ranbir Kapoor. Though Bhanupriya was disappointed at not being given the chance to star in a high-budget Hindi film, she did manage to act in a few other movies of prominent Hindi directors. She was one of the earliest of Indian celebrities to be seen in English-language films made by Hollywood’s elite group of filmmakers. She was also one of the very first celebrity females to be endorsed by iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood.
Today, Bhanupriya lives in the small town of Tamil Nadu in India, where she is remembered for her flawless complexion, sultry looks and engaging personality. She has always maintained a strong interest in art, music and Indian dance. Bhanupriya’s fans describe her as a perfect blend of beauty, grace and charm. Bhanupriya is survived by a son and two daughters. Her late father, Kalu Sudha Pillai, described Bhanupriya as his “loving daughter and a wonderful woman”. Other than her film career, Bhanupriya also voiced the character of Kavita in the animated Hindi film, Mankatha.
