Early life

Kanika was born on July 3, 1982 as the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Venkat Subramanian, both engineers. She grew up in a typical Tamil Brahmin household in the suburbs of Madurai.

She pursued Bachelors in Engineering from BITS, Pilani. She had also done pop music and light shows even during her school and college days.



Even as she was doing Engineering, Kanika was also making waves as a beauty pageant and pop singer. She was crowned Miss Madurai in 1999 and she later emerged as 2nd runner-up in Miss Chennai in 2001. On her crowning of Miss Chennai, she was the cynosure of all eyes during the competition and attracted director Susi Ganesan so much that he was so insistent on her performing the lead role in his dream movie Five Star. She eventually accepted the offer and gave a good account of herself.

A Break

Kanika knew her priorities very well and shunned all the offers to complete her graduation. The fact she rejected offers from people like Shankar, P.C. Sreeram, Cheran etc to pursue her studies raised the eyebrows of many Kollywood onlookers. Even before she finished her graduation, she completed her Telugu debut "Ottessi Chepputunna" during her vacations.

Versatile Actress

She accepted to redo her own part in the movie "Autograph" for its telugu version "Naa Autograph". She proved to be an actress to reckon with in the Kannada movie "Sye", a remake of Tamil movie "Dhill". She also ventured into Malayalam Cinema as the heroine for the campus based movie Ennitum. She won a lot of applause and acclaim for her latest role opposite Ajith in the movieVaralaru.

Films in the Pipeline

She is also essaying the lead role in a Kannada movie "Rajakumari" opposite Ravichandran, one of Kannada movie legends.

She had anchored a comedy show "Kalakka Povathu Yaaru" for STAR VIJAY. She had hosted with elan the popular family based game-show "Mega Thanga Vettai" for SUN TV. She also hosted the annual Chutti Vikatan Children's Quiz Show for SUN TV. She also essayed a lead role in the television serial Thiruvilayadal in SUN TV.
