Shobha has won the National award for Best Actress for her role in the Tamil film Pasi at a young age of 17. She started her career as a child artist in the film Udyogastha. Her first film as a heroine was Utrada Raatri. Shobha's real name was Mahalakshmi.

Shobha committed suicide, aged 17, after shooting for the movie Pasi. She was married to Balu Mahendra. In an interview to Anu Haasan in Koffee with Anu, Balu Mahendra has said that the tragedy of how Shoba was suddenly snatched away from his life by destiny, as quickly as she came, formed the plot for his next movie Moondram Pirai. The 1983 Malayalam flick, Lekhayude Maranam Oru Flashback directed by K. G. George is loosely based on her life and death.
