What’s wrong with it? It currently says:
> Prathyusha Sharma is a production manager and actress, known for Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi, Rustom (2016) and Dilwale (2015).

You can change it by hitting the Edit page button near the bottom of the page.

Prathyusha: Specifically, you would want to "add 1 item" to the Biography section. Currently, you have a computer-generated biography which is written in a generic style, based on the data on your page. If a human-written biography were submitted to your page, it would replace the computer-generated biography.

Prathyusha: Looking at your page at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10743887/, the three jobs listed below your name are determined by what jobs you have the most credits listed in on IMDb.

Since you have 7 Production Manager credits and no more than 2 credits in any other department, you will have Production Manager listed first there until you have more credits in some other department. Your top three occupations will be listed in any event, so you can't select to have just one job listed there.

There are a few other issues that I need to address to clarify the situation.
  1. You currently have 2 credits listed as an Actress, 2 in Location Management, 2 as a Producer, and 2 as Miscellaneous Crew. I don't know how IMDb broke the tie among those four departments to list Actress and Location Management as the second and third jobs below your name.
  2. One of your Miscellaneous Crew credits, for Phalana Abbayi Phalana Ammayi, is as a supervising producer. That job should actually be listed in the Producer department. You should submit edits to that film's page to remove yourself from the Miscellaneous Crew and add yourself to the Producer section. Once that change is processed, you will then have 3 credits in the Producer section and thus that will be the second occupation listed below your name (right after Production Manager).
  3. If you ever work on a television series, each episode will count as a separate credit for determining your top occupations. Thus, working as a Producer on 6 episodes of a television series (before doing any other work) would be enough to make that your top occupation. 
  4. And this doesn't apply to anything you have done so far, but if you had two different jobs in the same department on the same production, each job will count separately toward determining your top occupations. So, for example, if someone worked as both a sound mixer and a foley artist on the same production, that would count as two credits in the Sound Department.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
