Born as Vijayalakshmi, in a poor family in Eluru, Andhra Pradesh, Smitha left school after her fourth standard due to financial constraints. Due to her good looks, she was exploited by men, thus her family married her off at a very young age. But when she started getting ill-treated by her husband and in-laws, she ran away to Chennai and started living with an aunt.

She showed them her body and dared them to see and face it. It was not as if she had scripted the challenge. It was not as if the celluloid had designed a confrontation. It was the way she made her body available to the celluloid that made up the challenge.

Her body was her message. With cold dispassion she placed her body on show knowing fully well the passions it fired in millions of men. She was meeting their secret and shameful need to fantasize in a way that mocked and challenged the hypocrisy that produced it. She displayed with a somnolent arrogance the female body south Indian men had kept buried under the deb ...more
