After attending primary classes in Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Geethu moved to Canada with her family. During her school days, she won many prizes for painting. Studied Acting at Toronto University.

Child artiste turned Malayalam film heroine. When director Fazil came to know that she was in Kerala for vacations, he approached her with his offer of a role in Life Is Beautiful (2000), which ended up relaunching her career.

Geetu was five years old then and captured the hearts of Malayalam filmgoers as a fatherless child who discovers a father in an anonymous telephone caller. She acted in the top grosser En Bommukutty Ammavukku as the title role, which was the Tamil remake of Fazil's Ente Mamattikkuttiyammakku (Malayalam) done by Baby Shalini in the title role.
