Kalyani has no regrets for not acting in films. The young artiste, who hails from Dollar Colony in Bangalore, belonged to Telugu speaking family. She discontinued her studies from Bangalore St.Joseph College, for the simple reason that she was offered to act in Kannada Tele film 'Sorry' .The next offer came to her was the heroine for Maanaviathey a Kannada serial for the DD 1.
Now Kalayani is acting for Shivaji Productions mega serial Thavam and Bharathi yet another serial of the Kalaignar TV directed by Trinity Ravi.
Her role in the Thavam is that she acts as one of the three daughters of comedian Y.G.Mahendran . In the serial she has been asked to marry a person with whom she is not interested "The director Kathir has given me the role and I could easily bring out tears from the viewers with my pathos scenes" challenges Kalayani.
Speaking in Tamil is not her problems, because she learnt it from her mother who belonged to the Tamil Nadu and settled in Bangalore twenty five years ago in Bangalore with her business husband.
Kalyani's first serial in Tamil was Thedal for the Star Vijay Channel TV and Minbimbangal's Viswaroopam for the Raj TV channel. However, she was not satisfied with those roles, though they brought her certain amount of recognition from the Tamil audiences. She was waiting for an opportunity and it clicked through the Shivaji Productions Thavam and Bharathi director Trinity Ravi.
Kalyani who has taken a flat in Chennai for rent lives alone. Her maid servant takes care of her kitchen and shooting call-sheet dates is also accompanying her wherever she goes.
"If there is no shooting for me, I will go back to Dollar Colony and will stay for few days with my parents and brother and will comeback a day before the shooting" says Kalyani who likes to be always a free bird.
"Payment wise I am happy with the tamil serial producers. If I want earn more, I could do so by acting in films. But, the film producers themselves decide about my acting in films after watching my serials. If they are not willing to offer me a chance, I have no regrets. I treat the acting for small-screen and big-screen is same. I don't want to go to these film producers and beg for chances" says Kalyani stubbornly.
Being more philosophical in her speech she says, "If you want to attain something in your life, you will have to forego something. Otherwise, you can't reach the desired goals in your life. I forewent my higher education, for which I have no regrets".
Kalyani says that she always wanted to do performance oriented roles. "I love to do it. If the character is anything below my caliber definitely I will reject them" authentically states Kalyani.
When asked about how she learnt acting she quipped that when the first shot for the tele film was taken, she did not know even where the camera was placed.. " Just I followed what the director has said in the shooting. I owe my credit to all those directors whom I consider them are great including Kathir and Trinity Ravi for giving me chance to act in their serials" thankfully acknowledges Kalyani.
"I feel that one must be fortunate to act in serials and earn good name. I think I have done some good deeds in my past life. Otherwise, why I was called when I was at home to act in the Sorry Tele-film?. I was called to act because an artiste who has to appear didn't turn up for the shooting. Someone nearby my house suggested that I looked good and sent the producers to my house. My parents were against my acting, but after sometime they gave me permission to act in the film" talks extrovertly Kalyani.
Besides Kannada and Tamil Kalyani had acted in some Telugu serials like Endamaavalu and Sthree Naisam for the ETV channel.
Kalyani won the Silicon Valley Award for her Kabuludhari serial produced by Balaji Telefilms for Udaya TV..
"I have accepted the offer in Tamil serials only after I have completed and eight-episode-serial Chathuranga for the Kannada Udhaya TV. I was also longing for to act in Tamil Channels' mega serials. My dream has come true now and slowly people here began to recognize me. But, if anyone had seen me in Thavam, he would appreciate my acting" says Kalyani.
