Sneha Ullal is an Indian film actress who has appeared in Tollywood and Bollywood films. She is best known for her role in the Telugu film 'Ullasamga Utsahamga' and 'Simha'. Ullal was born in Muscat, Oman, to Indian immigrants parents of Devadiga community from Mangalore. She made her movie debut in the 2005 Hindi movie 'Lucky: No Time for Love' opposite Salman Khan. After the movie, she was noted for striking similarities in appearance with Aishwarya Rai. She later said that although the comparison didn't help her as an actor, it gave her a lot of recognition. She then appeared with Khan's brother Sohail Khan in Aryan, which did not do well at the box-office.
Fearing that she was too young and needed to be more mature to take plunge in movies, she took a break from Bollywood. She made her debut in Telugu movies in 'Ullasamga Utsahamga', which turned out to be a huge hit and made her popular in the South. 'Nenu Meeku Telusa...?' was her second Telugu release. It was followed by an item number on the song Nuvvu ready in the Telugu movie 'King' opposite Nagarjuna.
Later, she signed 'Kaashh... Mere Hote' to show that she was still interested in Hindi films. Her next few films didn't do well at the box-office but her 2010 release 'Simha' opposite Balakrishna turned out to be a blockbuster.
