CareerEdit

Subhash debuted in the 2010 Kannada film Porki, a remake of the Telugu film Pokiri, opposite Darshan. After the success of Porki, she refused several offers from Kannada films and became choosy about her projects before signing for the Telugu film Baava, a love story where she starred opposite Siddharth.[2] She was praised unanimously for her portrayal of a Telugu village belle in the film. She then went on to appear in her first Tamil film, Udhayan, starring Arulnithi.[3]

She was then signed up for her second Tamil project Saguni, opposite Karthi, which released in both Tamil and Telugu languages. Saguni was her biggest release: a film that released in a record 1,150 theatres all over the world.

She then appeared in Jarasandha and Bheema Theeradalli, a real-life story of a naxalite, both opposite Duniya Vijay. Subhash was praised for her portrayal of Bheemavva by critics and won a Filmfare nomination for the same.[4] She won the Santosham award that year for Bheema Theeradalli.

She then acted in the Kannada film Whistle, for which she earned a nomination at the SIIMA awards.

After this, she appeared in the Telugu language film Attarintiki Daredi, which was released in September 2013 and went on to become the highest grossing Telugu language film of all time, collecting over ₹100 crore. It also won her nominations at various award events. The film is being remade in other languages.

During the same time, she worked on a Kannada film Brahma, opposite Upendra. She also worked on Pandavulu Pandavulu Thummeda, starring Raveena Tandon and Mohan Babu, in which she was paired opposite Manchu Manoj. Both the films fared well. After a brief gap of two years, she signed for another Tamil film Masss, opposite Suriya in late November 2014.[5] In late 2014, she signed for a Telugu film Dynamite, opposite Manchu Vishnu.[6]

In late June 2015, she acted in the Telugu film Brahmotsavam, featuring Mahesh Babu.

She recently worked with Ayushmann Khurrana in the song "Chan Kitthan".[7]
