Yesterday’s child sensation and today’s Ollywood diva Prakruti Mishra seems to be riding high these days. After her stunning revival as lead actress in Prasanta Nanda’s ‘Thukul’, Prakruti has many offers now in her hand. Producer Sushil Kumar has cast Prakruti as the lead actress opposite the new comer Abhisekh Ratha in his new movie ‘Womens Hostel’. Prakruti is also starring opposite the actor Bulu in director Sibu Mohanty’s debut movie ‘Premika’.
Prakruti has started her career as a child artist at the age of six. Her first movie was ‘Sabata Maa’ in which she starred as the young Anu Choudhury. Since then, she has acted in more than 14 films as child artist. Apart from films, she becomes very popular for her ‘Smruti’ character in television serial ‘Tulasi’. In addition, she has many other TV serials, ads, music albums, and documentaries to her credit. Prakruti has also bagged Odisha State Film Award for best child artist for ‘Sasu Ghara Chalijibi’ in 2005.
