Arundhati is an Indian film actress and model who has appeared in Tamil and Kannada language films.


Arundathi finished her PUC from Ammanni College in Bangalore. She completed a one-year training course as an air hostess in Bangalore and appeared in an advertisement of Sumangali Sarees.[2]

Arundathi made her acting debut as Padmavathi in 2010 in the Kannada film Kolminchu and acted in G. K. Mudduraj's Khadak.[2][3] Later in 2010 she debuted in the Tamil film industry in S. A. Chandrasekhar's production Veluthu Kattu. While the film earned poor reviews, her performance was well received by critics. Sify wrote, "The only silver lining in otherwise a drab film is the performance of the lead cast especially the new girl Arundhathi" [4] and a critic from Behindwoods noted the actress "can shine in the hands of an able director and a good role".[5] Her next release, Bodinayakanur Ganesan opposite Harikumar, also opened to similar poor reviews and the actress' role was considered minimal.[6] Arundathi next appeared in Sundaattam and the film won average reviews.[7]

Her first release in 2014 was the Kannada film, Agraja.[8] She was then seen playing the role of a prostitute in Netru Indru, which she termed as her dream role,[9] while her director Padmamagan stated that she had performed "extraordinarily well in a bold role" and that the film would give her "the sensational break she deserves".[10] The actress is currently working on four films in Tamil and will be seen as a call centre employee in Thottal Thodarum opposite Thaman Kumar and in a pivotal role in the thriller Naaigal Jaakirathai with Sibiraj, while she also has Saravanan Poigai and Vetri with newcomers in production.[9]
