Early lifeEdit

She is a trained classical Bharata Natyam dancer who has given more than 50 performances. Her father Ram, also a Bharata Natyam dancer, has given nearly 500 public performances.[1] She has a sister, Nithya Ram, who is also a television and film actress.[2]


Rachita auditioned for the female lead role in Bulbul with 200 other girls before she was finalised on, in July, 2012. Before that she had already worked in Kannada television soap Benkiyalli Aralida Hoovu along with her sister Nithya Ram.[3] She was paired opposite Darshan in the film that went on to become a success commercially.[4] On her performance, G. S. Kumar of The Times of India wrote, "A new star is born in Sandalwood. Rachita Ram has presented an excellent performance in her first movie" and added, "Rachita Ram is amazing with her dialogue delivery, body language and excellent expressions."[5] Her first release of 2014 was Dil Rangeela, in which was paired opposite Ganesh, a performance that won her acclaim from critics. B. S. Srivani of Deccan Herald felt that she "delivers a seasoned performance" in the film.[6] Her second release of the year saw her paired opposite Darshan again in Ambareesha. The film and her performance earned negative reviews from critics.[7][8] In Ranna, she played Rukmini, the love interest of Sudeep, appearing in a small yet pivotal role.[9] In Rathavara, she appeared as the love interest of Sriimurali, who plays gangster and key aide of an MLA. Sunayana Suresh of The Times of India wrote, "Rachita Ram looks pretty and has acted every bit the cutesy girl-next-door that is required of her".[10]
