Pretty and petite Amoga with a charming inability
to hold the drapes of her sari in place, safety
pins strategically placed notwithstanding
made quite a splash in her debut film, Jay
Jay opposite Madhavan directed by Charan.
The songs were a big hit and were played repeatedly
on TV, wherein she performed her cutesy dance
moves. The verdict was that she couldn't do
much in the emoting department but her good
looks would see her through.
Alas, this was not to be. That was the last
we saw her in Tamil cinema save for an item
number she did with Jiiva for Kacheri Arambam.
She headed to the greener pastures of Bollywood,
where she was Ram Gopal Varma’s muse
for a period. She was seen in a couple of
his films, but was lambasted so severely by
the critics, especially for her modern-day
interpretation of Hema Malini’s immortal
Basanti in Sholay, that she ducked under the
surface and has not been sighted since.
