B. Saroja Devi is an Indian actress, who has acted in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi movies. One of the most successful female leads in the history of Indian cinema, she acted in around 200 films. She is known by the epithets "Kannadathu Paingili" (Kannada Nightingale) and "Abinaya Saraswathi" (Saraswati of acting).

At the age of 14, Saroja Devi got her big break in the Kannada film Mahakavi Kalidasa (1955). In Telugu cinema, she made her debut with Panduranga Mahatyam (1959), and starred in a number of successful films until the late 1970s. The Tamil film Nadodi Mannan (1958) made her one of the top actresses in Tamil cinema. Her career in Tamil films declined after her marriage in 1967, but she continued to be one of the top actresses in Kannada cinema until the 1980s. She also starred in Hindi films until the mid-1960s, starting with Paigham (1959).

Saroja Devi received the Padma Sri, the fourth-highest civilian honour, in 1969 and Padma Bhushan, third highest civilian award, in 1992 from the Government of India.


Saroja Devi had an arranged marriage with Shriharsha, a Bharat Electronics engineer from her own Gounder caste, on 1 March 1967. At that time, she was facing a financial crisis and income tax troubles. Her husband helped her overcome these problems, and taught her how to manage her finances. Her husband encouraged her to continue acting, and their marriage lasted till his death in 1986.

The couple had three daughters (Bhuvaneshwari and Indira), and a son - (Gautam Ramachandran). Her son was named after M.G. Ramachandran, while Indira was named after Indira Gandhi. Bhuvaneshwari died young, and Saroja Devi sponsors the Bhuvaneshwari Award for literature in her memory.
