In the teledrama 'Sooriya Daruvo' (Children of the Sun God) Chathurika played the lead role of teenager Viveka, who faces the ups and downs in her love life and the problems encountered by her family, with a liberal attitude and carefree demeanour.
Chathurika has acted in nearly ten teledramas so far. She was just a schoolgirl at Musaeus College when the very first offer for a teledrama came to her. It was a secondary role in 'Bava Sayura'. And since then there has been no looking back for her.
'Rangana Vijithaya', 'Paradeesaya', 'Yaso Mandiraya', 'Pavena Sarungal', 'Ranmasu Vessa', 'Vasanthaya Evilla', 'Indrachapa', and 'Aashavari' are some of the teledramas Chathurika has starred in, that have been telecast, not-yet-telecast and still-on-shooting. Among them 'Rangana Vijithaya' (Directed by Sriyani Amarasena) was shot in Australia.
Chathurika is one of the lucky young women whose career is backed by her loving supportive parents. Her father is a radio artiste and her only sister is a permanent dancer cum TV artiste,Purnika Subhani Peiris. Hence 'art' is something that has been in her genes.
