The big dawn in the small screen - "Roshini Haripriyan"

Dusky woman rocks with brisk performance; the new flaunt "Kannamma".

From model to an actor Roshini Haripriyan is more than what we see. She is bold, she is incredibly intelligent and drafted what she wants. She directs beginners to be patient, stay positive and work hard; "SHE India" catches up with Roshini Haripriyan, the Kannamma who stole people's heart...


Roshini Haripriyan is a Chennai girl who is now famous for her role of Kannamma in Vijay Television's Bharathi Kannamma serial. She is well known for her saree and Jewellery ads. The out of box woman who has a positive mentality. I was impressed by her role in the serial. And let's not forget, she steps into the character of dusky - intelligent woman which I could see in and out in her. From modelling to an actor she had taken many hard paths to reach in here.


Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. A chit-chat with Roshini in a beautiful Sabayashi inspired Saree.
