Urvashi is one of the most-loved heroines of the Malayalam film industry, playing some of the most unforgettable characters during the 1980s and 1990s. It is almost impossible to list out all movies in which Urvashi made her presence felt to the Malayalam audience. This veteran actress, sister of actresses Kalaranjini and Kalpana, celebrates her birthday on August 30 and Galatta.com wishes all the best and a very happy birthday in this occasion.

While still in school, Urvashi made her debut in films with Mundhanai Mudichu (1983) with Bhagyaraj. The movie was a big hit and made Urvashi a sought-after actress in all the South Indian languages. She went on to act in many hit Tamil films like Michael Madana Kamarajan, Patti Sollai Thattadhae, Aravindan and a number of Malayalam and Telugu movies over the past two decades.

She has appeared in nearly 100 films in Malayalam that include Achuvinte Amma, Pidakkozhi Koovunna Noottandu, Mazhavil Kavadi, Sphadikam, Bharya, Aayirappara, Kalippattam, Kizhakkan Pathrose, Aham, Utsava Melam, Bharatham and Kadinjool Kalyanam.
