The first leading actress of the Sri Lankan cinema is Rukmani Devi who put forward a great step opening up the stage of performance for women in an era where female characters were performed by men.

Later on Punya Heendeniya , Anula Karunthilka and Malani Fonseka continued to carry the traditional role of an actress in Sinhala cinema.

It was the actress Swarna Mallawarachchi to first break away from the traditional model of a Sinhalese actress and played the role of a woman’s reaction to the suppression suffered in male chauvinistic Sinhalese society.

Three decades later Anoma Janadari played a controversial role in Ashoka Handagama’s “ Thani Thatuwen Piyabanna’ . Her character powerfully depicted how the revolutionizing political arena of the country affected the rights of Sinhalese women.

Taking another step ahead in her socialist role she published her life story “Punarukthi” in 2011 as a tribute to women who suffer from violence and harassment and encouraging them to stand against social discrimination. The book received the attention of the reader turning out to be a bestseller.
