Early life

Sriya was born to Bharath Reddy, a former Test cricketer and wicket keeper. She did her schooling at Good Shepherd School and went on to study at Ethiraj College Chennai. When she was a child, cricketers Ravi Shastri and Sandeep Patil visited their home and complimented her good voice. During school, she received modelling offers, but had to decline them, since her father wanted her to finish her education first. When she was offered an audition for the leading music channel Southern Spice Music, she was able to convince her father that she would do both study and be a VJ.

Career

Sriya, after winning the VJ hunt by SS Music, started hosting shows like Connect and Phonetastic. However, she cited she needed five auditions before being selected. She became highly popular as 'VJ Sriya' on SS music, becoming familiar among young viewers. She then accepted her first acting assignment for a Telugu film, in spite of her parents' aversion to her acting in films, citing that she signed the contract when her father was asleep. Her debut release, however, happened to be Balaji Sakthivel's directorial debut, Samurai, in which she played a supporting character alongside Vikram. Her maiden Telugu release, Appudappudu failed at the box office, following which she did not work in films for over a year. Her next release was in 2004, when she debuted in Malayalam with the Mammootty-starrer Black. She played the role of a young Tamil village woman who comes to town in search of her missing husband, carrying a "thoroughly de-glamourised look" in the film, totally contrary to her real-life look, with director Renjith, on his decision to cast her for the role, citing that she had a "very Dravidian face". Sriya considered this film as her highest point of career for having acted alongside legendary Malayalam actor Mammootty. Later that year she also starred in an English film named 19 Revolutions, directed by Chicago-based Shridhar Reddy, which featured Sriya as a rich girl who wants to rob her father and did "very well in the US", according to Sriya.

In 2005, she had a single release, the Malayalam action film Bharathchandran I.P.S., which was very successful at the box office. Her performance as an IPS police officer gained positive remarks, with critics comparing her to Vijayashanti. 2006 she had four film releases, with her two Tamil films gaining most fame. The action flick, Thimiru, directed by Tarun Gopi and starring Vishal Krishna, her later brother-in-law, portrayed Sriya as a rustic, loud woman with negative shades, with her performance being widely critically acclaimed. In the other Tamil release, the S. Shankar-produced drama film Veyil directed by Vasanthabalan, Sriya was part of an ensemble cast featuring Bharath, Pasupathy, Bhavana and Priyanka Nair. The film opened to rave reviews and became acknowledged with several noted film awards, including the National Film Award and two Filmfare Awards. She appeared in a pivotal role in Priyadarshan's art film Kanchivaram, which, too, became highly acclaimed and was honoured with the National Film Award, while Sriya received nominations for the Filmfare Award and the Vijay Award. After completing shooting for the film, she got married and stopped acting.

Personal life

Reddy and brother of actor Vishal Krishna and had starred in a couple of Tamil films, before turning full-time film producer, primarily producing films featuring his brother Vishal in the lead role under his GK Films Corporation. Sriya since has been co-producing films with her husband. The couple blessed with a baby girl.
