An actor or actress who leaves behind a string of flops right from the debut movie can be quite unheard of in any film industry anywhere in the world. If the star performed remarkably well, earned critical acclaim and fan following he/she may survive one or two movies after the debut, though the films could be hopeless flops in the box office. But South Indian films actress Charmi is such a talented actress that she survived several flops in all the major language film industries in South India, like Tollywood, Kollywood and Malayalam film industry.

The 22-year-old Charmi Kaur (also spelled as Charmy or Charmme with or without the surname Kaur), born in Mumbai, India in a Punjabi family, raised and educated in Mumbai, had her debut in the Telugu film Nee Thodu Kaavali (2002), which was a big flop. But Charmi’s talent, future potential as an actress and, of course charm, was noticed by the South Indian film industry.

Charmme has acted with such stars as Simbu, Venkatesh, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Prabhas, Siddarth, Ravi Teja, Sumanth, Nitin and Jr. NTR. She has acted in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam (Kaattu Chempakam in 2002), and Kannada (Lavakusha in 2007) films.

Her noted flops include Nee Thodu Kaavali, Kadal Azhavatillai, Kattuchembakam, Sri Anjaneyam and Chanti. But Charmy had a big box office hit with the Telugu film Gowri (2004) in which she was paired with Sumanth. It was followed by the success of the movie Mass (2004).

Charmme's most successful film so far can well be Anukokunda Oka Roju, for which she was the winner of Santosham Best Actress Award. It was a heroine-oriented thriller and her performance was acclaimed by critics.

Charmme's other notable successful movies include Chinnodu, Rakhi, and Mantra, another thriller with Charmme in the lead role.

Now Charmi is one of the most successful and bankable actress of Tamil and Telugu films, and she has a huge fan following.
