Srinda (born 20 August 1985) is an Indian actress, model and dubbing artist who predominantly works in the Malayalam cinema.[4][5] Her debut film was Four Friends. She is best known for her roles in Malayalam movies 22 Female Kottayam, Annayum Rasoolum, 1983, Freedom Fight, Kuruthi, Bheeshma Parvam and Aadu.[6]

Srinda did her schooling at St. Mary’s Anglo Indian Girls High School, Fort Kochi up to Class 10 before moving to a school in Palluruthy for her Higher Secondary School Certificate studies. She later studied at the Sacred Heart College, Thevara.[7]

Srinda was passionate about films and photography since she was young, and said that films were always on her mind even after she started working. Bored with her job, she started her film career as an assistant director.[8] She then briefly worked as a television anchor, but felt that her “heart wasn’t in it. I felt like something was missing which I found in films”.[7] She went on to model for products such as hair oils and jewellery brands before appearing in a documentary which eventually led her to feature films; she was noticed by director Dileesh Nair, who introduced her to Aashiq Abu.

Even though her debut film was Four Friends, her notable cinematic debut is considered as Aashiq Abu’s 22 Female Kottayam, in which she played a friend role of the lead character,[9] with Arhaan stating that the film “shaped her as an actor”.[7] In the following months, she was part of several popular films such as Thattathin Marayathu, North 24 Kaatham, 101 Weddings, Artist and Annayum Rasoolum, although she played only minor supporting roles in them. In 2014 she had a lead role in the sports film 1983 and her character Susheela was noticed.[7][10] Later that year, she played a police officer in the political satire Masala Republic, and had two releases on one day, Tamaar Padaar and Homely Meals, both of which had her in starring roles.[7]

Srinda was married when she was 19 years old, and has a son Arhaan. She married Siju. S. Bava in 2018 after getting a divorce from her first marriage.

She attended and graduated from Sacred Heart College, Thevara.[1][2][11]
