CareerEdit

Sulochana was introduced to the film industry by director K. G. George at the age of 13. Even at that age she was very very tall, he gave her the name Anuradha. She was the tallest actress at that time. She started off as a heroine and later moved on to doing item numbers. Even with that imposing height, Anuradha could act in over 700 films, which is a great achievement even when most of her co-actors or heroes were far shorter than her. She is trained in martial arts and she did her action roles perfectly without any dupe. She was an expert motorcycle rider, who rode Java, Enfield bullet and other motorcycles.

She was born to Krishna Kumar a choreographer and Saroja a hairdresser for actresses in films. Her father is a Marathi and her mother is from Andhra Pradesh.[1] Anuradha is married to Sathish Kumar in 1987, who was a dance director and they have two children Abhinayashree and Kalicharan. Abhinayashree is an actress by profession. Anuradha's husband met with a motorcycle accident on 7 November 1996, which caused massive damage to his brain and he died on 2007 due to heart attack.[2]
