Trisha Krishnan is an award-winning actress in both Tamil and Telugu film industries. She rose to fame in the Tamil industry with her roles in movies, Saamy and Ghilli and the Telugu industry with her movie, Varsham.

After her first appearance in the 1999 Tamil film Jodi, in a supporting role, she won a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for her first lead role in the 2002 film Mounam Pesiyadhe. She later rose to fame starring in the successful films, Saamy (2003) and Ghilli (2004) in Tamil cinema and Varsham (2004) in Telugu cinema, for which she secured her first South Filmfare Best Actress Award before getting the same award 4 times. She made her Bollywood debut in the 2010 film Khatta Meetha opposite Akshay Kumar. She was seen in her career best performance in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa (2010) for which she won Vijay Award for Favourite Heroine and was nominated for Filmfare Best Tamil Actress Award and many other awards.

Trisha was born in Chennai into a Tamil family hailing from Palakkad, Kerala. She did her schooling at Sacred Heart Church Park School, Chennai. In school, she participated in several cultural activities, sports and school band. While studying at Ethiraj College for Women, she ventured into part-time modeling and participated in various beauty pageants. As part of her modeling career, she appeared in many television advertisements including that of Fanta, Tata Indicom, Vivel ITC and Colgate Active Salt. She also appeared in Falguni Pathak's music video Meri Chunar Ud Ud Jaye as Ayesha Takia's friend dancing in the video.In 1999, she won the Miss Chennai contest.

Trisha was the subject of a controversy in 2004 when a two and a half minute video clip allegedly of her taking a shower in the nude circulated over the Internet. She, however, denied her appearance in the clip, saying, "It was not me in the 2½ minute bathing video clip and someone who wants to malign my name has done this on purpose." In fact, the clip, which purports to have been shot from a hidden camera, makes it clear the subject, who often makes eye contact with the camera and engages in exaggerated pelvic gestures, knew she was being filmed. This makes it unlikely to be Trisha. In any case, she later filed a complaint with the Chennai Police Commissioner. Subsequently, the Editor of the Tamil weekly Netrikkan was arrested by Chennai Police for publishing the nude photographs of her in the weekly. In 2010, she was involved in a drug scandal controversy in Hyderabad, when a report on a Telugu channel claimed that Trisha's name was included with other top celebrities in the list of clients of Chima Clement, a Nigerian drug peddler, arrested in Hyderabad. Her name featured in the list because the channel assumed fashion designer Sidney Sladen, a close friend of Trisha of African origin, to be the Nigerian drug peddler. She declared the scandal as an attempt to malign her name in the Telugu film industry. She also sued the channel for dragging her name into the scandal.

Trisha resides in Chennai with her parents, her grandmother, and her dog MINX. Her mothertongue is Tamil, and she converses fluently in Hindi, French, and English.
