A total of 8 films, were released including her first major hit in Telugu with Hanuman Junction as well as other hits in Unnai Ninaithu and April Madhathil. Prestigious films with top actors also followed, such as King and Pammal K. Sambandam with Vikram and Kamal Haasan respectively.

After a successful previous year, Sneha became more aware with her choice of films, with only two releasing in 2003.

The film became became a commercial hit as well as winning plaudits for Sneha’s portrayal of the double role.

Though she has acted in many Telugu films, the success of K Ragavendra Rao-directed mythological movie ‘Sri Ramadasu’ (2006) helped Sneha to firm up her foothold in Telugu cinema. Her role in the movie, steeped in the bhakti culture, was well appreciated by moviegoers. Meanwhile, her Mollywood flick with Mammootty, ‘Thuruppugulan’ (2006), was also a big hit.
