Chandrika Ravi is an Indian actor, dancer, producer and activist born in Melbourne, Australia to Tamil, Malayalee parents.

She broke into the Indian film industry with a bang, debuting with the 2018 Tamil comedy blockbuster ‘Irattu Arayil Murattu Kuthu’, going on to complete 3 more South Indian films over the next year. With the release of the Telugu blockbuster ‘Veera Simha Reddy’ in 2023, she became a household name, with sold out theatres and her performance garnering over 30 million views on Youtube.

 

She has proved to be a true trailblazer; being recognised for her talent and passion and starring opposite and working with some of the biggest names in Indian cinema. Her latest announcement, co-creating and starring as the late Silk Smitha in the official Silk Smitha biopic, is a true testament to Chandrika being the first global Indian sex symbol of our generation. 

 

Chandrika began learning acting and dancing at the age of 3, undergoing extensive training in the classical Indian dance styles of Bharatanatyam, Kathak and Odissi, as well as Bollywood, Indian Folk Dance and Musical Theatre at The Temple of Fine Arts. She began her studies of Musical Theatre, Jazz, Ballet and Contemporary dance at The Australian National Youth Performing Arts Group at the age of 8, going on to graduate from the New York Film Academy with a diploma in ‘Acting for Film’ in 2012, also studying ‘English and Creative Arts’ at Murdoch University in Western Australia. 

 

In 2011, she was the first Indian to place in the state finals of Miss World Australia and shortly after that won the title of Miss Maxim India Runner Up 2012. She continues her passion for modelling with many global endorsements, partnerships and campaigns, along with being published in renowned magazines internationally. 

 

Having realised at a young age that she had a passion for public speaking, Chandrika has hosted live events and segments on television and radio all around the world for clients such as NBC Universal, SBS Australia and ABC Australia; and is currently working with a major network in the US on an original unscripted series which brings together her love for travel and food.

 

Ambition, passion, humility, her unique look and her dedication to representing Indians globally has attracted many opportunities in entertainment and wowed audiences around the world. Through her achievements she has become a role model to young women and men of colour everywhere, one of the biggest blessings she could ever ask for, instilling hope and determination that they too can break the mold!


Chandrika uses her growing voice to advocate equality and rights for women and children around the world, especially in India; along with being a spokesperson for mental illness and advocates to help break the taboos that surround it in South Asian Communities. She currently works with UNICEF India and various other NGO'S in India to help bring relief to the needy.

 

She resides between Los Angeles and India, continuing to leave her mark on the world as a true Indian bombshell.
