Keerthana is the daughter of actor R Parthiepan and actress Seetha. She swept away the Tamil industry with her debut in Maniratnam's 'Kannathil Mutthamittal' in 2002.

It remains her most accomplished film as a child artist. She even won a National Award in the Best Child Artist category for her performance in the film.

Being a star kid with stunning dusky looks and talent, many expected her to take up an active career in Kollywood. However, Keerthana was nowhere to be found after the film.

It was said that despite receiving many film offers, the star turned it down to take up a different career in the cinema industry. Following the footsteps of father Parthiepan, she became an assistant director to Mani Ratnam for the film Kaatru Veliyidai.

In 2018, the former actress got married to director Akshay Akkineni in a private Hindu ceremony surrounded by family and friends. Like Keerthana, Akshay family is also involved with cinema. His father is the film editor Sreekar Prasad. Take a look at their engagement and wedding photos here:

According to some sources, it was a love marriage. Would you like to know their love story? Let us know in the comments!
