Sakshi Agarwal

Sakshi Agarwal, the versatile Indian actress and model, has captured the hearts of Tamil cinema audiences with her impressive performances. From her beginnings as a marketing consultant to gracing the silver screen, Sakshi’s journey is one of determination and talent. Let’s delve into the life and career of this dynamic personality who also made a mark in the reality TV world with Bigg Boss Tamil Season 3.

Early Life and Entrepreneurial Beginnings

Born on July 20, 1985, in Chennai, Sakshi Agarwal spent her formative years pursuing education and honing her skills. Her father, a Rajasthani, and her mother, hailing from Punjab, instilled in her a blend of diverse cultures. Sakshi attended Good Shepherd Convent in Chennai and later pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from St. Joseph’s College of Engineering. She furthered her education with an MBA from Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship.

Transition to Acting and Modelling

After completing her education, Sakshi embarked on a career as a marketing consultant, working with esteemed companies like Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys. However, her passion for the arts led her to explore part-time modelling alongside her corporate job. It was during a charity fashion show that fate intervened, and she was approached by a modelling recruiter. This marked the beginning of her journey into the world of entertainment.

Early Career and Modelling Assignments

Sakshi’s foray into the modelling world opened doors to various commercial assignments. She graced print ads, television commercials, and fashion shows, including a memorable appearance in Malabar Gold’s advertisement alongside Suriya. The positive reception to her modelling work encouraged her to take a leap of faith, and in January 2013, she bid farewell to her corporate career at Infosys to pursue acting full-time.

Entry into Film Industry

Armed with determination and talent, Sakshi ventured into the Tamil and Kannada film industries. Her first film project was director Tejaswi’s Kannada film “Heddari,” which she completed by August 2013. Although her initial Tamil tele-film “No Parking” and her brief appearance in “Raja Rani” (2013) went relatively unnoticed, Sakshi’s breakthrough came with the Kannada comedy drama “Software Ganda” (2014), where she essayed the role of an office worker.

Rise to Prominence

The years 2015 and 2016 saw Sakshi Agarwal in a series of diverse roles in Tamil films. From donning nine different avatars in a song sequence for “Ka Ka Ka Po” to portraying a fashion student in “Adhyan,” she showcased her versatility as an actress. Despite some films like “Jeyikkira Kuthira” remaining unreleased, Sakshi continued to strive for excellence.

Notable Projects and Recognition

In 2017, Sakshi honed her craft with a three-week intensive course at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Her dedication paid off when she landed a role in Pa. Ranjith’s “Kaala” (2018) alongside superstar Rajinikanth. She made her Malayalam debut with “Orayiram Kinakkalal” (2018), earning praise for her portrayal of a caring wife.

Recent Ventures and Bigg Boss Tamil 3

In 2021, Sakshi Agarwal essayed the female lead role in Vinoo Venkatesh’s “Cinderella,” a horror thriller film that garnered positive reviews. She also appeared in “Aranmanai 3” alongside Sundar C., receiving mixed reviews for her performance.
