- Does Amala Paul smoke?: Not Known
- Does Amala Paul drink alcohol?: Not Known
- Amala was born and brought up in a Syro-Malabar Catholic family.
- She started her acting career in 2009 by playing the role of Beena in the Malayalam film Neelathamara.
- She has worked in different languages such as Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada.
- She replaced her on-screen name Amala Paul to Anakha on the suggestion given by director Samy, because another actress, Amala (Amala Akkineni), had already made her name popular.
- After the failure of her Tamil film Sindhu Samaveli in 2010, she again changed her on-screen name Anakha to real name Amala Paul as she felt that the replacement had brought her bad luck.
- In 2013, she won several awards for her performance in the Malayalam film Oru Indian Pranayakatha such as Vanitha Film Awards for Most Popular Actress, Asianet Award for Best Actress, SIIMA Award for Best Actress – Malayalam, and Amrita Film Awards for Best Actor (Female).
