Revathy, happy birthday!

Revathy, the accomplished actor and director, who’s made her mark in all the South Indian languages, was born on July 8, 1966

The popular actor-director, who just turned 46 shows no signs of slowing down. In Malayalam, she has Molly Aunty Rocks coming up, wherein Revathy is playing the title role. And in Tamil she’s part of the experimental Konjam Koffee, Konjam Kaadhal, being directed by Venky with a host of newcomers in the cast.

Revathy may be turning 46 today, but she’s already put in three decades in the film industry, beginning with Bharathiraja’s Mann Vaasani, when she was barely in her teens. She played the innocent village girl to perfection in this one and there was no looking back. Great roles followed at a time when scripts focused on strong women characters that went beyond using them as mere hunk accessories.

As she celebrates her birthday, she can look back on a career filled with awards and accolades. Revathy won the National Award for her supporting role in Thevar Magan, and her directorial venture Mitr, My Friend bagged a National Award as well. The next film she directed, Phir Milenge in 2004, was a watershed in Indian cinema, dealing with the sensitive subject of AIDS.

Besides cinema, Revathy also devotes time and energy to social organisations like Banyan, the Ability Foundation and the Tanker Foundation. Here’s wishing this talented woman of substance a very happy birthday.
