This actress, born under the Piscean sky of March 17, 1976, finds solace and joy in the whispers of books and the discipline of gymming.

Planting her creative roots firmly in the cultural soils of Hyderabad, Telangana, Pragathi transcends the role of an artist alone.

Her chronicle through Tollywood and Kollywood whispers of an artist forever etched in the hearts of her audience. Mother, daughter, judge, or friend, she epitomizes the many faces of womanhood, embodying each narrative with verve and vigour.
