Vijayalakshmi Vadlapati , better known by her stage name Silk Smitha , was an Indian film actress who worked predominantly in South Indian films. She became a major sex symbol and the most sought-after erotic actress in the s. On 23 September , she was found dead in her apartment in Chennai , having committed suicide. She left school after her fourth standard when she was about 10 years of age due to the family's financial constraints. Her striking looks burdened her with uninvited attention, and her family married her off at a very young age. Her husband and in-laws treated her poorly and she soon ran away. Smitha started as a touch-up artist for an actress and soon got a break in small character roles. He changed her name to Smitha and took her under his wing; his wife taught her English and arranged for her to learn dancing,  though soon, due to her marked sex appeal, she switched to roles of cabaret dancers and vamps and inevitably found herself typecast.
