Simran(Telugu:సిమ్రాన్ ) I can never forget those days. It all happened when I was shooting for Superhit Muqabla for Doordarshan’s Metro channel. I got a call from ABCL (Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited) and when I got there, Jaya Ji (Jaya Bachchan) was there and asked if I would be interested in a role in their forthcoming film. It was like a dream…I came to know that quite a few ladies were screen-tested! There I was sharing the screen with three other relative newcomers Chandrachur Singh, Arshad Warsi and Priya Gill I did get some offers after ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ but none of them excited me. It was then that ‘Once More’ came to me. I was
lucky to share screen time with greats like Shivaji Ganesan. The movie did well and I was considered a lucky actress. I stayed back longer when I was offered Malayalam film ‘Indraprastham’ with superstar Mammootty. Again it proved to be a hit and I realized that regional cinema was my playing field.
I have virtually settled down here though we still have our connections with Mumbai. Yes, I do like Chennai a lot... its atmosphere, its people, though climatically it is hot and sultry. I find the people very easy to get along, despite being conservative. Compared to the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, Chennai is peaceful and of course, I really love the south Indian food.
I have some interesting roles lined up. I am acting in Director S.J.Surya’s film New (he plays the lead role too). I am also sharing the stage with Arjun in Otran directed by Ilangkannan. I am now looking more at quality rather than quantity. Glamour can sustain you momentarily, but you have to possess histrionic skills to survive in the long run. I have also Velu and Oru

Nadikayin Kadhai on the anvil.
Basically, I want to do roles that offer me better scope to perform a variety of emotions. I only accept well-defined characters now, be it in Tamil, Telugu or Malayalam. I am really happy to have worked with people like Mani Sir (Mani Rathnam), Nasser, Kamal Hassan, Mohan Lal… etc. These people give you confidence. If you see, each role of late has been different. If Pammal K. Sambandham had me do comedy, Parthale Paravesam is different and so is Kannathil Mutham Ittal with Mani Sir and Madhavan, and in Kovilpatti Veeralakshmi i had done a non-glamourous and an emotional action packed role.I have learnt from each director and each unit that I have worked with. K. Balachander always reminded me of a school principal. I guess I learned at least 10 new expressions on every day of shooting that we did. Mani Rathnam is so organized.

Read the script and you won’t need any further explanations. I sometimes am surprised by the zest that these filmmakers show.

Despite it being his 100th movie, you should see the enthusiasm and the drive that Balachander Sir has.
The first Tamil film I watched was Kamal Hassan's Avvai Shanmughi (made into Hindi as Chachi 420). I did not employ a tutor.

Instead I saw to it that my assistants spoke to me in Tamil. I learnt four to five words a day. Now I can speak the language fluently. I must tell you that even in my initial days, I did not get my dialogues written out in Hindi. I just took the help of a prompter. I am quite comfortable with Tamil now, though the other three south Indian languages still do not flow

naturally, though I can understand them.
She sweet heart of south Indian cinema Simran with her mini skirts, petite figure and impish smile made the good-luck charm for many-a-producer.

Simran got her break in Indian Cinema when Jaya Bachchan saw her anchoring Super hit Muqabla, Doordarshan's TV show on Metro Channel a decade ago after performing on stage for her college. Simran debuted with Tere Mere Sapne, a comic thriller, the first production of ABCL (Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited) but unfortunately the film failed to enthuse in the box-office.  

She moved to south and got a break in a Tamil film ‘Once More’ with Thespian Sivaji Ganesan, coupled with Vijay which was also a flop but her next film ‘VIP’which was a hit starring Rambha, Prabhu Deva and Abbas, created the image of a hottest sex symbol in town, and after thgt there was no looking back. She became very popular in the tamil film industry

While most of her earlier films portrayed Simran as a glamour roll, of late she has made even critics sit up and take notice of her talent.  She entered Telugu field by the film ‘Priya O Priya’ in kannada she acts a film opposite Shivraj Kumar, in Malayalam 'Indraprashtam opposite Mammootty.
Simran tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Deepak Bagga on december 02 2004. Deepak is said to be her friend for 17 years, though the couple has been spotted together only in recent times. Simran’s wedding might see the end of her film career as an actress, though she might emerge in a new avatar as a cinematographer or a scriptwriter.

In recent times Simran has had the maximum number of hits to her credit."Kannethere Thondrinal" with Prashanth, "Thullatha Manamum Thullam" with Vijay, "Aval Varuvala" and "Vaali" with Ajith are a few of her hits, and Kannanthil Muthamittal with Madhavan which deserve special mention.

Although she had a stupendous success in the Tamil film industry, her later part of he career was marred by the death of her sister and her alleged affair with Raju Sundaram, a choreographer.

She joined AIADMK before 2006 Tamilnadu Assembly elections along with her husband Deepak and campaigned extensively for Jayalalitha in Tamilnadu State elections of 2006 (which Jayalalitha lost).
