Childhood and education

Sobhitha Dhulipala was born into a Telugu Brahmin family on May 31, 1992, in Tenali, Andhra Pradesh. Venugopal Rao, her father, was a Merchant Navy engineer, and her mother, Santha Kamakshi, was a primary school teacher. She was raised in Visakhapatnam as a studious child who was mainly concerned with "being well-read, good in studies, and school captain." She traveled to Mumbai alone at the age of sixteen, seeking bigger vistas beyond her home city, and eventually attended H.R. College of Commerce and Economics at the University of Mumbai. She is also a Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi classical dancer. Dhulipala was crowned Navy Queen in 2010 at the annual Navy Ball.

Career Planning (2013)

Dhulipala's college classmate was interning at the Miss Office and suggested she audition for the forthcoming pageant. Dhulipala joined with the idea of merely clearing the first round to prove to her friends that she could, describing herself as a "uncool geek" who yearned for validation. She opted to continue with the rounds after passing the auditions. Dhulipala achieved an auto-entry into the top 23 in the 50th year of Femina Miss India after winning the Femina Miss India South 2013 title, a zonal pageant of Femina Miss India. Miss Stylish Hair, Miss Adventurous and Miss Fashion Icon, Miss Talent, and Miss Digital Diva were also given to her. She later represented India at Miss Earth 2013 in the Philippines, but she did not place in the top 20, instead earning the titles of Miss Photogenic, Miss Beauty for a Cause, Miss Talent, and Miss Beautiful Face. She was also included in the 2014 Kingfisher Calendar.

Career as an actor (2016-present)

Dhulipala made her cinematic debut in 2016 with Anurag Kashyap's Raman Raghav 2.0. In July 2016, he also signed a three-film agreement with Kashyap's production firm, Phantom Films. The film premiered during the Director's Fortnight at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where she was nominated for best supporting actress by critics. She signed two projects in early August 2016, Kaalakaandi directed by Akshat Verma and Chef directed by Raja Menon, both starring opposite Saif Ali Khan.

Dhulipala made her Telugu debut in the 2018 film Goodachari, starring Adivi Sesh. She also has a starring role in the Amazon Prime original series Made In Heaven. In 2019, she played an intelligence agency operative in Bard of Blood, an Indian fictional spy thriller Netflix web television series based on the 2015 espionage novel of the same name. Dhulipala made her Malayalam film debut alongside Nivin Pauly in the 2019 Geetu Mohandas directed Moothon. Kurup (2021), starring Dulquer Salmaan, featured her.

  • She told during an interview that she never wanted to be an actress, instead, desired to be a writer. Talking about it, she says,

    I didn’t grow up watching films or thinking that you know ‘Oh! mujhe actor banna hai, star banna hai, aisa maine socha to nahi’. I grew up reading a lot on literature and all of that. But this was something as I hope for a dream and I am glad it happened actually.”

The competition brought changes in her attitude and lifestyle. Talking about the transition in her, she said-

    For the first time in my life, I was getting attention. I was very awkward with myself, I was so lame… But Miss India did more damage to my self-esteem. It took me more away from me because you’re reduced to someone who’s entertaining, who is pleasing. It messed with my head. You have a constant identity crisis. You feel like you don’t belong anywhere like you’re following your ego or the need to feel good about yourself. Where does that end really?”
