He was born on July 14, 1954 to M. Ramanathan and Pushpa Leela in New Delhi and has a sister named Mallika Ramanathan.With a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from The Loyola College in Chennai, Sarathkumar Ramanathan started his career as a journalist before achieving super stardom in the movie industry.
His entry into films was marked by him playing negative roles in Tamil cinema. He later moved on to playing lead roles before working his way up to attain the celebrated star status that he enjoys today. Drawing inspiration from Hollywood greats such as Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Julia Roberts, Demi Moore, by the late 90s he is hailed as one of Tamil Nadu’s leading heroes. His first big break came with the lead role in the movie ‘Suriyan’, and from then on he has gone on to receiving many prestigious awards. In 1988 he received his first award for best actor for his role as a villain in the movie ‘Pulanvisaranai’ and his first award as a lead actor followed six years later in 1994 for the movie ‘Nattamai.
The accolades haven’t stopped coming in as he played several lead roles in all four of the southern languages, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Telugu. With more than a hundred and thirty films under his belt the once modest yet strong minded journalist has come a long way.
Sarath is also the President of the South Indian Film Artistes’ Association. From playing villains to cops to transgenders, Sarathkumar has proven that he can take on almost any role and execute it like a professional, much like the multitasking he does in his real life. Be it coincidence or personal choice, he has played the role of an honest cop several times, on a quest to cleanse society, and that’s probably one of the reasons why the politician in him stands out as someone different!

He has four children.His two daughters Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and Pooja were born to his first wife Chaya.A son named Rahul born in 2004 to his second wife Raadhika Sarathkumar and has a step daughter named Rayanne Hardy born to his wife Raadhika from a previous marriage.
