3/21/2013 2:05:34 PM

Shobana, classical dancer and actress, turns 47 today. This Malayalam beauty is as ravishing as ever, performing on stage with an energy and vigour even younger artistes envy.

The actress, who made her debut in Malayalam in 1980, has carved a niche for herself, winning a national award for the 1993 film, Manichitrathazhu by Fasil. She’s also made a mark in other languages, earning critical acclaim for the Telugu Rudraveena in which she starred with Chiranjeevi and winning her second national award for Mitr, My Friend in Hindi. In Tamil, Shobana’s most remarkable performance has probably been in Thalapathy, Mani Ratnam’s classic starring Rajinikanth, Mammootty and Aravind Swamy.

She appeared in last year’s Kollywood film Podaa Podi and is also part of the Kochadaiyaan cast.

Here’s wishing Shobana a very happy birthday.
