Keerthi Reddy is a Telugu actress. She also acted in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies.

Keerti—the name itself means popularity. For Keerti Reddy her name was supposed to do the trick. Along with the name, if there was anything else that would have done the trick was the fact that her debut film in Bollywood was with the Abhishek’s Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya. If there was any jadoo, it was of the wrong kind.

This Bangalore bred, shy and innocent schoolgirl started career at the tender age of seventeen, while she was studying in Bangalore's Jiddu Krishnamurthy School. Coming from a family of politicians, Keerti always wanted to become a part of the glamour world. She learnt Bharatnatyam for eight long years and had some basic training in classical Karnatic music and classes in diction and voice modulation.

Reddy was born to interior designer and mother a dress designer. Her grandfather is Ganga Reddy, Member of Parliament from Dichpally in Andhra Pradesh. She was raised in Bangalore.

Keerthi Reddy's first film was Gunshot directed by S. V. Krishna Reddy which was a flop. After that she acted in the only hit film of her career Tholi Prema with Pawan Kalyan. Reddy dropped out of two successful films in 1999, Vaali and Sethu. She received a Best Supporting Actress Award (in a Telugu language film) from Filmfare magazine for her role in Arjun.

She takes lessons in horse riding, salsa and jazz during her free time. “Dance in any form is a passion, especially Bharatanatyam”, she says. “I love to travel. Vienna's my favorite city. it is the most romantic place in the world.”

A simple girl by heart, she loves doing simple household chores like shopping for groceries, cleaning house and reading. Her favorite actors remain Sanjeev Kumar, Brad Pitt, Michael Douglas and Andy Griffith. Her favorite films are ‘Lolita’ and ‘The Piano.’
