Film career[edit]

Early Career (2006-2012)[edit]

She made her first film appearance in the Kannada hit film Mungaru Male as a friend to the film's female lead (Pooja Gandhi).[5] In the next three years, she appeared in supporting roles in three Kannada films. She also appeared in a film titled Gaganachukki, which never released.[5] She left the Kannada industry to work in Tamil and she was not willing to do anymore second lead roles. In 2012, she signed her first leading role in Kollaikaran.[6]

Recognition and success (2013-present)[edit]

Shetty has played female lead character in Nalan Kumarasamy's black comedy Soodhu Kavvum which was a critical and commercial success, collecting over 50 crore (US$7.0 million)[7] and it is to be considered biggest success in her career.[8] She played an imaginary character in the film, which was received well. Sify wrote, "Sanchita Shetty as his (Vijay Sethupathy) girlfriend is smashing and delivers some one-liners with perfect lip sync".[9] The film went on to be remade in several other Indian languages and Shetty expressed interest in reprising the role in its remakes as well.[10]

In 2014, she signed a Kannada film after five years, Badmaash directed by Akash Srivatsa, which will see her playing a Radio Jockey.[11] In September 2014, she stated that she had four films, among which one would be a bilingual.[12]
