Kanika decided to give herself a go at the Tinsel towns. She gave a good account of herself in the Kannada picture Annavaru, a remake of Tamil movie Thalapathi. She gracefully played a small and neat role in the film Autograph and earned critical acclaim. To prove her versatility with all genres of cinema, Kanika gave a stunning performance in a comedy oriented role in the commercial movie Aethiree.
When no heroine was willing to pair with the one legged wonder hero Kutty for the film "Dancer", Kanika gladly accepted the offer and did a neat job. She accepted to redo her own part in the movie "Autograph" for its telugu version "Naa Autograph". She proved to be an actress to reckon with in the Kannada movie "Sye", a remake of Tamil movie "Dhill". She also ventured into Malayalam Cinema as the heroine for the campus based movie Ennitum. She won a lot of applause and acclaim for her latest role opposite Ajith in the movieVaralaru.
Cinema is an unusual place for a Mechanical Engineering graduate from the BITS, Pilani, to be in but Kanika says she finds the place very interesting. She started her acting career as the heroine in Susie Ganesan's Five Star, a film produced by Mani Ratnam's Madras Talkies.
How is ended-up actiing?
"It happened after I was crowned Miss Chennai in 2001. I was not even supposed to be participating in the event; I was there only to sing. But when a girl backed out, I was asked to fill in for her. They persuaded me saying that I was tall. I did and won without ay preparation or experience!
I was doing my third year at BITS, Pilani, then. I received a lot of movie offers like Boys after that. But I did not accept any more because my first priority were my studies."
"When I came down for my next vacation, I was offered Five Star. They said they would shoot the film during my summer holidays. So I agreed. They changed my name to Kanika. My real name is Divya."
