Avvai Shanmugi is a super hit movie released in 1996, directed by K.S. Ravikumar with Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan and Meena in the lead.

Ann Alexia Anra is a model who played a prominent role in Avvai Shanmugi. She starred as Kamal-Meena's daughter in the movie at the age of 7 and became a popular child artiste.

Ann's mother, however, didn't want her daughter to enter the movie industry, as her family lost their privacy following Avvai Shanmugi's release.

Thus, Ann started engaging in creative ventures such as writing, modeling, dancing, and social media marketing upon growing up. She has now turned into media personnel, but it is still unsure if she would make a comeback into the movie industry.

Here's how the grown-up star looks like now:
