Namitha is an Indian film actress who has been involved mainly in the South Indian film industry. She participated in the pageant for Miss India in 2001, before making her film debut through the romantic Telugu film Sontham (2002).
She gained prominence in Tamil movies in the mid-2000s through her glamorous roles and often starred against older actors. Through the end of the decade, Namitha was among Tamil cinema’s most popular actresses and enjoyed a cult-like fan following across Tamil Nadu from audiences. Since 2010, Namitha has been evaded by box office success, leading her to appear in fewer film roles and to witness a decrease in her fan following.
