Padmapriya After making her niche in Malayalam and Tamil cinema, actress Padmapriya is all set to enter the world of Hindi cinema with director Chandan Arora’s Striker .

"It is a period movie set in the Mumbai of the 1990s. The movie is based on carom board striker. It has Siddharth (of Rang De Basanti fame), playing the main protagonist and I play a bar owner in the film," Padmapriya told a news agency.

The film also features Vidya Malvade , Nicolette, Seema Biswas and Aditya Pancholi.




Though her first film was Telugu movie 'Seenu Vasanthi Lakshmi' (2003), Padmapriya, an MBA graduate, said she never really worked in Telugu film industry.

The actress said she did the movie for a friend because he was "pestering" her for long. It was done at her "convenience" and during the Christmas vacation.

"I never intended to make a career in films but after the movie was released, offers started pouring in," she said. 'Seenu...' was remake of a Malayalam film. Her first Malayalam movie was 'Kaazhcha' (2004) directed by Blessy. She was cast opposite Mammootty .

In the movie, Padmapriya played the role of a girl's mother who becomes attached to a child orphaned by the Gujarat killer quake, brought home by her husband Mammootty.
