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.
