Shobhana: Galatta's Birthday Girl!
Shobhana has three major talents. She is a renowned actor, a trained Bharatanatyam exponent and a fine teacher. She is the niece of the famous dancer-actor trio Padmini, Lalitha and Ragini. But even since her debut, Shobhana chose to move out of the shadow of their famous identity and carved a niche for herself in movies and the dance circle.
If you look at her early career graph, she was no different in terms of her screen roles. Like many of her counterparts, she just adorned the hero's side as his glamorous and attractive attachment. She has acted in many blockbusters of her time and has paired with the top-notchers Kamal Haasan and Rajnikanth during the early phase of her career. However, Idhu Namma Aalu, the flick with actor-director Bhagyaraj put her on a high pedestal. Both the film and her character were praised for their originality. Moreover, Manichithirathazhu in Malayalam and Rudra Veena in Telugu too turned the spotlight on her. Further, Mitr My Friend, the cross-over production in which she acted in her friend Revathy's direction is another feather in her cap.
Though she strived her best to stand out from the lot, she could not move out of the rigid heroine mould. When Shobhana's onscreen portrayals continued to be the usual stereotypes, she decided to concentrate more on her other passion, dance. Trained under the eminent Chithra Visweswaran, Shobhana began to perform in solo thematic productions and group recitals. In 1994, she founded her dance school Kalaarpana. She travelled to other countries and performed in many stage shows and concerts. Maya Ravan, the recent thematic dance drama conceived, choreographed and presented by Shobhana has earned wide acclaim.
In 2006, Shobhana was honoured with the Padma Shri title for her significant contribution to dance and films. Since her birthday that falls on 21st March, we at have chosen this talented lady as our Birthday of the month star. Advance birthday wishes to you Shobhana from, the complete movie portal.
May your contribution and service continue!
