Saritha is a South Indian actress. She has acted in at least 141 feature films, and was cast in the television serial Selvi in 2005. Her mainstream career spanned from 1979 to 1989, when she took a break to marry Indian actor and producer Mukesh and raise their two sons. In March 2007, she filed for divorce.

Balachander didn't cast her in the Hindi remake of Maro Charithra, because he needed a Punjabi actress for the film to work in Bollywood, so he casted Rati Agnihotri instead. However, he liked Saritha's performance in "Marocharithra" (1979) so much that he cast her in 22 more South Indian films, including Agni Satchi, Kalyana Agathigal and Achamillai Achamillai. She also played herself in a guest role in his 1981 film 47 Natkal.

She has won several acting awards for her performances in Balachander's films. Considered to be a very sincere actress, she had head tonsured for the cancer-affected girl role in Sujatha in 1980 and gained several pounds to play the psychotic role in the 2005 film Julie Ganapathy. Neither of these films were successful.

Saritha has also worked as a dubbing artist in Telugu and Tamil. She has lent her voice to various other actresses including Soundarya, Ramya Krishnan, Nagma and Vijayashanti.

She won a Special Jury Nandi Award for her performance as Aandaalu in Arjun and for her voice to Soundarya in Anthahpuram.
