Rama Prabha (born 5 May) is an Indian actress who has performed primarily in Telugu language films. She acted in almost 1000 films. She was credited as a character artist who shared screen space with all generation superstars. Her career spans more than four decades and is still continuing.

She formed a noted pair on Telugu screen during 1970s and 1980s with yesteryears comedian Raja Babu.

Rama Prabha was born in Madanapalli; she was from a middle class family and was brought up by her aunt in Ooty and Madras. She used to travel a lot with her aunt and uncle that hampered her studies. But she had always been in good environment.

Rama Prabha says she never thought of making entry into films! With her uncle's sudden demise, her family was in doldrums. That made me to step into movies. So when she was giving performances as classical dancer, Pratyegatma noticed my skills and offered me a role (acted as sister to hero Krishnam Raju) in his film Chilaka Gorinka (1966).

In seventies and eighties, irrespective of the lead star, one pair that was common in all the films was Ramaprabha and Rajababu. After Relangi - Girija, their combination clicked in big way with Telugu film audiences. Rajababu is no more. But his most popular on-screen jodi Ramaprabha is still painting makeup to her face and enthralling the audiences! She has also ventured into TV. Ramaprabha has completed 41 years in the film industry yet her love for acting has not diminished. I caught up her when she just returned from the shooting of "Chakravakam" serial.

Rama Prabha paired mostly with Rajababu garu. They together had done more than 100 movies although she had acted with almost all the heroes of that time - Chalam, Ramakrishna, Shoban Babu, Krishna, etc.

Rama Prabha was married to actor Sharat Babu but later separated. Sharat was four years younger to her. Their marriage did last for fourteen years. They won many awards as best couple on the screen. Off the screen they weren't that way.
