We have seen many South Indian film industry actresses joining Bollywood. Kajal Agarwal, Tamannaah Bhatia, and Asin are few such examples. The latest addition to this list is Tollywood star Sneha Namanandi, who is making her Bollywood debut opposite Sanjay Dutt. Sneha Namanandi was born in Mumbai and did her schooling from St.Teresa Convent, Mumbai. She completed her graduation from RD National College, Mumbai, and soon after that, she headed over to Tollywood to test her acting abilities. Apart from being a success in Telugu cinema, she also acted in numerous Kannada, Tamil, and Malayalam movies. Sneha has also appeared in many music videos, including Akhil Sachdeva’s first single ‘Gal Sun’. Akhil Sachdeva is known for singing ‘Humsafar’ in the movie ‘Badrinath ki Dulhaniya’.
And now this Tollywood star is all set to take make her first Bollywood appearance. Sneha Namanandi will soon be seen in the Sanjay Dutt starrer ‘Torbaaz’.
Sneha posted a few pictures from the movie’s set in Kyrgyzstan on her Instagram account. In the post, she is praising her co-star Sanjay Dutt and his ability to rise again, against all odds. Well, we agree! Here’s the post:

She also posted a picture with the director of the movie Girish Malik.
And thats our amazingly talented director “Girish Malik” sir..After his award winning movie “jal” , he is all set for his next bollywood film “Torbaaz”..Proud to be a part of this film.. #director #actress #kyrgyzstan🇰🇬 #aftershootingmode #kyrgyzrepublic #travelplusadventure #workandleisure#kazakhstan #torbaaz #movie #bollywood #superstars #instapic #picoftheday
Girish Malik earned recognition for directing the critically acclaimed movie ‘Jal’. The story of the movie ‘Torbaaz’ is based in Afghanistan. It is about the child suicide bombers in Afghanistan and depicts how these kids are trained to believe in killing as being righteous and the path to a glorious afterlife.
Though the movie is based in Afghanistan, most of the shooting took place in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. As seen in the post below, Sneha Namanandi is playing the character of an Afghani woman.
Interestingly enough, few of her co-actors took her to be of Afghani origin. The actress clarifies the same in an interview to Glamsham:
“I feel blessed to have a personality that easily moulds into the characters I’m chosen to play. It must have been the director’s vision of me playing an Afghani that has translated into me having made people confused about my origin
In the same interview, Sneha Namanandi also expressed her views on working with Sanjay Dutt:
“I’ve admired Sanjay Dutt’s work and loved his performances since childhood. His looks, the way he talks and conducts himself, his overall personality is so mesmerizing. I’ve always aspired to work with him and this is a dream come true. He’s an amazing co-star to work with. I completely look up to him, especially for how he has fought all the negativity in his life and has started new innings in his career. He’s an inspiration to me”

If you are thinking that the actress is just another pretty face, you are wrong. While Sneha has immense love for acting, she is also a trained belly dancer and has performed in many stage shows. She also has a keen interest in sports. As per her Instagram posts, she participated in the Women Throwball League back in November 2017.
