Regina’s mother tongue is Tamil. She started anchoring when she was nine for Splash, a kids’ channel and then moved on to work in commercials. Aged 16, she shot for her first film, Kanda Naal Mudhal directed by V. Priya, which also starred Prasanna, Laila andKarthik Kumar. In the film, Regina portrayed Latha, the 21-year-old pregnant sister of Laila’s character, and has since mentioned that people still find it hard to believe it was her in that role, as she was very young and wore no make-up.
She then appeared alongside fellow newcomer Yogi in Azhagiya Asura, which won good reviews. However the film’s low-key release meant that the film failed to gain attention, so she took time out from films and then went on to graduate in psychology from Women’s Christian College, Chennai and took another year off before taking a final call on joining movies. During her break she also acted in several short films, most notably Balaji Mohan‘s Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi alongside Adith Arun, which was later made into a feature film in 2012 under the same name.
she did not sign more films in Tamil and instead shifted her focus to Telugu films. Kotha Janta directed by Maruthi was Regina’s first 2014 release. She received positive response for her performance in the film.Deccan Chronicle wrote, “The star of the film is undoubtedly Regina Cassandra. She looks cute and bubbly and delivers a delightful performance.
She has done her character with ease and with the right expressions, Her next releases were Ra Ra… Krishnayya, which saw her reuniting with Sundeep Kishan, and Power in which she played a Bengali girl. Power was declared as one of the biggest blockbusters of the year and this is the biggest hit in Regina’s career till date.
Just a couple of nights ago, the sultry Chennai hottie Regina Cassandra made a huge splash at the inaugural ceremony of her debut Bollywood film, Aankhen 2, which also stars none other than the country’s biggest star Amitabh Bachchan.
While Regina’s fans were thrilled about their favorite actress’ achievement, Regina too was all kicked and upbeat about her new journey and was seen thanking and receiving congratulatory messages on her social media pages.
However, a series of articles and video clips claiming ‘Regina’s Wardrobe Malfunction’ from Aankhen 2 launch event have disrupted the actress’ excitement. The videos showed Regina’s slightly exposed derriere while performing a dance movement on stage.
Speaking to an English news daily about the whole fiasco, Regina expressed her anguish and said she didn’t expect her Bollywood debut to end up this way. Regina said, “It was a terrible mishap. I got off the stage with a ‘Oh my God! What just happened!’ The entire team was extremely supportive and I told myself, ‘It’s okay’, and have moved on.
