"I am getting to know more about Rohit only after the engagement. I have got five months to understand my man. For any girl, the time from her engagement to wedding is the most beautiful period and I am currently enjoying that wonderful phase of my life. It was an arranged marriage, but slowly turning out to be a love marriage," Kalyani told The Times of India.

She entered the film industry as a child artiste in 2001-release "Alli Thandha Vaanam", starring Prabhu Deva. Kalyani continued her filmy career playing the child actor roles and did her first major role as the leading lady in "Maranthen Meimaranthen", which released in 2006.
