Charmee

Charmy Kaur (also spelt as Charmee or Charmi) is an Indian film actress, who has predominantly appeared in Telugu films. She acted with stars such as Dileep, Mammootty, Amitabh Bachchan, Nandamuri Balakrishna, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Jr. NTR, Prabhas, Siddarth, Ravi Teja, Sumanth, Nitin and Silambarasan. She is known for her dedication to learn Telugu in a short span of time. Charmi gave her voice to Kajal Aggarwal in the film Chandamama (2007). She was considered to be one of the best dancers in recent years. Her dance movements in movies like Manthra and Pournami are well received by audience and critics.

Charmy was born in Mumbai and her family is of Punjabi-Sikh background. She studied in Carmelite Convent English High School in Vasai.

She made her acting debut in the 2002 Telugu film Nee Thodu Kaavali, in which she acted as a housewife at a young age of 15. This film was a flop, but helped Charmme in getting noticed by the south Indian film industry. Her next film was Kadhal Azhivathillai with Silambarasan, which was also a flop. During this time she acted in a Malayalam film directed by Vinayan named Kattuchembakam. This film also bombed in box office. After that she acted in a couple more Tamil films but they bombed at the box office.

Her re-entry to Telugu films happened with Neeke Manasichhaanu a film with Sreekanth which was a failure; then in Sri Anjaneyam, directed by ace director Krishna Vamsi which too was a failed attempt. It was followed by another failure with Chanti, paired against Ravi Teja. She finally got a big break in Telugu with Gowri in which she was paired with Sumanth. She didn't have to look back afterwards. The stupendous success of Mass with Nagarjuna strengthened her position in Tollywood. Charmme's most critically acclaimed film so far is Anukokunda Oka Roju. It was a heroine-oriented thriller. Her performance in the film was acclaimed by critics.

In 2006 she acted in Pournami which was a total failure in spite of high expectations, but her performance was appreciated. Though she did not learn Indian classical dance, her Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi dances in the film were appreciated by audiences. Later that year she was paired for the second time with Sumanth in Chinnodu but it was not a successful venture. Her next film, Rakhi (with NTR), was a hit. In 2007 Mantra, a thriller with Charmme in the lead role, was declared as a surprise hit.This performance fetched her the Nandi Award for the best herione of 2007. Her performance in the film is appreciated by wide range of audience.The movie was a sleeper hit because of her charm & fans base in male youth.The song "maha maha" became a superhit and her dance was well received by wide range of audience.

Then, she starred in several lady oriented roles, a rare thing in Tollywood. The list includes Anukokunda Oka RojuMantra, Manorama 2009, Kavya's DiarySye AataMangala in Telugu and Laadam in Tamil, out of which Anukokunda Oka Roju and Mantra were very successful.

In 2011, she acted opposite venu in Mayagadu,which is a failure at box office & the movie got average collections because of charmi's glamour or exposing.

Finally she got chance to work in Bollywood in the film Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap lead by Amitabh Bachchan . Her role on this film is as a supporting actress and the film has done average in the box office.At present she is busy with doing special songs in high budget movies like Dhamarukam,Naayak & Yaare Koogadali. She was first considered for the most popular song of 2012 'kevvu keka'from Gabbar Singh,but later makers chosen malaika arora for unknown reasons.

Now she is doing the movie Prema Oka Maikam,lady oriented movie directed by chandu of 10th class fame. She is said to be playing the call girl character in that movie.
