Keerthy Suresh is one of those few accomplished actors in the southern film circuit who rose to fame very quickly. She has come a long way in south Indian cinema since her debut.
Keerthy, daughter of producer Suresh Kumar and actress Menaka, debuted in the film industry with the Malayalam movie Geethanjali in 2013 and since then has been lucky enough to bag some of the best projects in both Tollywood and Kollywood.
The actor has now completed six years in the film industry and Keerthy took it to social media thanking fans for accepting her as an artist.
“6 years ago, I was born as an actor. I’ve been fortunate enough to have lived many lives, as different characters. Thank you for accepting me and showering your love and blessings. I’m super grateful to be having the opportunities that come my way to live my dream over and over again. Eternally thankful to my family, fraternity and well-wishers. Take a seat and grab your popcorns. You and I have a long way to go (sic),” the actor wrote on her Twitter handle.
