Manochitra is an Indian film actress who has appeared in Tamil films. She has also previously been credited as Nandhagi and as Manumika.
Nandhagi aka Manochitra first met the director Meera Kadhiravan at the Kancheepuram Kamakshi temple and he requested her to star opposite Jai in his next venture. During the production of Aval Peyar Thamizharasi, where she played the title role, the director Meera Kathiravan asked the actress to avoid interviews and to be kept away from promotional activity to maintain suspense of her identity. The film became an average grosser at the box office but won critical acclaim and she was nominated for the Vijay Award for Best Debut Actress. The actress soon after the release began working on a project titled Thaandavakone with debutant director Ganesh as well as Ithanai Naalai Engirundai with R. Balu opposite Ananda Kannan. However neither of the films have been released and remain stuck in the production phase. Another film titled Kalingathubarani with Vimal, for which she re-christened herself to her birthname Manochitra, was also shelved half way through production after the producer ran out of funds.
In 2013, Manochitra made a comeback featuring in the multi-starrer Netru Indru alongside Prasanna and Vimal, while also signing on to feature in Ajith Kumar’s next film directed by Siva.
