Sensitive Portrayals Actress Padmapriya ties the knot

Sensitive Portrayals Actress Padmapriya ties the knot
Actress Padmapriya, known for her sensitive portrayals on screen in Tamil and Malayalam, got married on Wednesday to her long-time beau Jasmine Shah, who is associate director of policy with Jamal Abdul Lateef Poverty Action Lab, and works out of Delhi.

The actress, who made her debut in Tamil with Thavamaai Thavamirindhu, and Jasmine were married at a private function in Mumbai. The duo apparently met in the U.S. where Padmapriya was studying at New York University and Jasmine at Columbia. Jasmine is known for his ‘Jaago Re’ One Billion Vote Campaign.

Padmapriya has acted in close to 50 films across Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi with much-feted filmmakers, including Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Blessy, Cheran and Hariharan. She has also won a special jury award at the National Awards in 2009 for her body of work across languages.

Her latest release is the Malayalam Iyobinte Pusthakam, directed by Amal Neerad. It co-stars Fahadh Faasil, Isha Sharvani and Jayasurya.

Padmapriya, also a celebrated Bharatanatyam dancer, has always been drawn to cerebral roles. In real life, she is a multi-tasker, having done an MBA in finance and a course in environmental law from NLS, Bangalore.

She has worked in the social development sector, a field similar to her husband’s.
