Gorgeous Janani Iyer started off her career as a model. She appeared over 150 Ads before she started her movie career. Although she started off her career with insignificant roles she got a big break through director Bala\'s movie Avan Evan.
Janani is a Tamilian born and brought up in Chennai. She is a BE graduate. Her first appearance in a movie happened in 2009 through the movie Thiru Thiru in which she did a insignificant role and then in Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya and that role was also insignificant. It was AL Vijay who recommended her to Bala for the movie Avan Evan in which she got a big break. Next was Paagan which was not a success.
Her first Malayalam debut was 3Dots which didn\'t make any impact. After that she did 7th day and Mosayile Kuthira Meenukal. Her latest movie is Koothra which has lots of high expectation.
