Cinemascope >> Star Profiles >> Antara Mali

Best known for the role of Kanu in Ram Gopal Verma's Company, Antara Mali though a newcomer is no stranger to the world of showbiz. Daughter of ace photographer Jagdish Mali, Antara always wanted to be an actress. And when she decided that she wanted to join films, her father did all to dissuade her but Antara didn't lose faith in her talent and on God. She made her debut in a small budget film called Doondte Reh Jaaoge. The film went unnoticed and to Antara's dismay, her second film, Dum Dum Diga Diga was shelved halfway through. Her next break came with Ram Gopal Varma's Telugu film Prem Katha (with Manoj Bajpai & Sumant) that did average business but there seemed little chance of her making it in Hindi films.

After that, Antara did the second lead in Keshu Ramsay's Khiladi 420 with Akshay Kumar. Her sizzling act in the film went unnoticed but when director Ram Gopal Varma, well known for resurrecting careers, cast her in Mast, her life changed drastically. Though her role of Anjali in the film was short, it gave her a second lease as she hit it off well with Varma. A year later, Ram Gopal Varma offered her the role of 'Kanu' opposite newcomer Vivek Oberoi in Company. And that role made her a household name as Antara gave a splendid performance. Then Road happened and thus her journey in Bollywood looks very smooth and prosperous.
