Kanika’s entry to Kollywood was with Five Star, which was directed by Susi Ganesan. After a few films, the actress tied the knot to US-based Shyam, who is the brother of actress Jaishree. Her love for the greasepaint, however, continued and it is evident from the fact that she still rules the roost in Mollywood.
Kanika received rave reviews for her performance in Pazhassi Raja. Also, 2009 has been a great year for the actress as she has received eight awards.
Presently, the lady has been signed up to star in the Malayalam film Christian Brothers, where she will be sharing the screen space with Mohanlal and Suresh Gopi.
