Haradanahalli Devegowda Kumaraswamy is all set to take oath as Karnataka’s Chief Minister. After the tussle of power down South, Kumaraswamy, son of the former prime minister of India, H. D. Deve Gowda is set to become the CM of the coalition government of JDS and Congress. With crucial floor test in Karnataka Assembly on Saturday, it was obvious for HD Kumaraswamy and other eminent political leaders of the state to trend on Google. However, surprisingly Radhika Kumaraswamy, wife of HD Kumaraswamy was also on top of Google search.

Wondering why? Well, it was partially because of her husband, and also because Radhika is a popular face in the south film industry. An actor and producer, Radhika tied the knot with Kumaraswamy in 2006 and they also have a daughter named Shamika K. Swamy. After her first marriage with Ratan Kumar hit the rocks, she secretly got hitched to Kumaraswamy in 2006 and announced it only in 2010.

Actress Radhika Kumaraswamy made her acting debut at an age of 14 with Kannada film, Neela Megha Shama. Her first release was in the year 2002, Ninagagi opposite Vijay Raghavendra. The movie was loved by the audience and it became one of the highest grossers of the year. In 2003, her career went downhill when her five Kannada films didn’t get a good response.
