Is it that Latha Rao and her husband Rajkamal made a pact? Yes it’s interesting and also surprising to watch that lovely couple wearing the same colour dress always!! Latha Rao is born on 5 the of June in Bangalore but brought up in a small town called Bavani sagar near Sathyamangalam, Tamil nadu. Her father was a government employee and mother, a home maker.
Her entry into serials is a surprise for herself. She came to Chennai for attending a function and there was a shooting happening nearby. Out of curiosity she went and was watching that and that’s when her debut into small screen happened. That was the famous “
Metti Oli” serial’s shooting and because of her good looks she was offered a small role in that serial. Following that she acted in more than 30 serials in Tamil, telugu, Malayalam and kannada. She has been doing many negative roles and in one such serial called “
Rekkai Kattiya Manasu” she and her husband fell in love and got married ( though they acted together before that in a serial called “
Appa”). They have two beautiful daughters Lara and Raga.
She also acted in “Maruthani, Rajakumari,
Thirumathi Selvam, Nilavai pidippom, Meenakshi, iruvar ullam, kurinji malar. She did a negative role with name Malasri in a serial called Manaivi. She became so engrossed in the character that it took days for her to come out of the impact of the negative role after the serial ended.
She took a break when her children were born and then she entered the small screen through the serial “
Kalyanam”. She started anchoring lots of celebrity shows like movie music release and also acting in advertisements. She says her husband is her pillar of strength and he always encourages her as he also is in the same industry and so could understand her difficulties. They both as couples have participated in dance shows like Jodi number one – both seasons and Masthana masthana.
Her interests are cooking, reading books and listening to music. Above all she is a very committed mother and knows to beautifully balance her personal and professional life. She believes that TV serials best suits a married lady when compared to movies and is happily looking forward for more opportunities in Television.
