Roja Selvamani is a veteran south Indian actress and politician.

Early life

She was born in Hyderabad, India.

Film Career

She entered the cine industry from Telugu films. She was first introduced in the Tamil film by director R.K. Selvamani in his film "Chembaruthi" paired with actor Prashanth. The movie was a blockbuster and paved the way for her in the Tamil cinema industry. Her appeal was universal. She had acted with almost all the top actors and directors in the industry.

Roja's career breakthrouh was in the film "Unnidathil Ennai Koduthen", directed by Vikraman. She performed very well in this film in a character role. She has even acted for a solo song performance in a few movies without reservations. She has been awarded for her performances by magazines and organisations for roles in films in the Tamil language and the Telugu language.

Roja is well known for her outgoing nature. She has befriended her co-stars like Meena, Rambha, Devayani, Sithara and Kushbhu. During a film shoot for a Kannada movie, "Premotsava" in 2001, Roja volunteered to do make-up and hairdressing for her fellow star Devayani for about three days when the movie was shot in a remote location beyond Mysore. Actress Meena, in an interview in the Vijay TV program, "Coffee with Anu", admired Roja for her sisterly affection and wanted to act as her younger sister in a movie or TV serial, as they look alike.

Roja's 100th movie was "Pottu Amman"
