She is the second Indian representative to have won this title.

After winning the title and post her reign, Srinidhi turned her way towards acting and debuted in the period acting film, K.G.F. in 2018 which starred Yash in the lead opposite Srinidhi and was directed by Prashant Neel.

When the reports of Srinidhi starring in K.G.F. came out people thought that it would be hard for a someone like her to switch to Kannada movies but the diva who is known for her dedication and hard working attitude proved everyone wrong and also stated, “I am a Kannadiga and am happy to start my film career in Sandalwood. I spent time with them trying to understand the project better. I know that modelling and acting are two different things, but to be honest, I am a little nervous when it comes down to ‘lights, camera, action’. It is not easy to get your expressions right and to understand the scenes, but I will practise and will give it my best. I am sure like everybody I will learn and grow.”

After the success of K.G.F., the diva went onto sign a Tamil-language supernatural thriller film directed by R. Ajay Gnanamuthu, opposite Kollywood superstar Chiyaan Vikram. The movie was scheduled to be released in the month of May but due to the lockdown in the country, the filmmakers decided to postpone the release date. But Srinidhi recently took to her social media account and shared the stills of the song ‘Thumbi Thullal’ from the movie which was released by the filmmakers yesterday.

Asking about her debut in Bollywood, the diva mentioned, “After K.G.F., my portfolio has reached Bollywood. Everything is being discussed but I haven’t finalised any film but would still prioritise to do a Kannada film if it is a good project.”
