She has acted in over 200 movies in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi. Not only that, She is currently a Judge in STAR Vijay Jodi Number One Season 6 Reality Dance program .
Radha Nair and her husband Rajasekaran Nair, son Vignesh Nair, daughters Karthika Nair and Thulasi Nair have settled in Mumbai. For the past 20 years they have owned a chain of restaurants in Mumbai and two hotels called UDS in Kovalam at Kerala, which have won the best coastal beach resort award. They also own a restaurant in the UK named “Rock and Role Kitchen” (RRK).
Her sister Ambika is also an actress. Her daughter Karthika Nair started her career as an actress with the Telugu film Josh. Her another daughter Thulasi Nair started her career as an actress with the Maniratnam film Kadal (2012 film).
Radha started her career in 1981 starring as the protagonist in director Bharathiraja‘s Alaigal Ooivathilai alongside debutant Karthik. The movie was a runaway hit and is regarded as a cult classic by many. The on-screen chemistry that she shared with Karthik was highly successful and led to many movies like Pakkathu Veetu Roja, Valibamey Vaa Vaa and Ilanjodigal. In the same year Radha played a small role in the movie Tik Tik Tik which also starred Kamal Haasan. Tik Tik Tik played a significant role in her career. Later she starred alongside Kamal Hassan in movies like Oru Kaithiyin Diary, Thoongathey Thambi Thoongathey, Kadhal Parisu and Jappanil Kalyanaraman.
Her sister Ambika is also a very popular actress. They shared screen space in films like Enkeyo Ketta Kural, Kadhal Parisu, Anna Nagar Mudhal Theru, Idhaya Kovil and Vellai Roja. The two sisters were at the zenith of their fame when they acted in Kadhal Parisu in which they played the roles of very glamorous, highly desirable women. Ambika and Radha managed their careers very carefully and after attaining success they were very selective about taking up roles in Tamil movies and only performed with top actors and directors. It was very rare to see both the sisters in the same movie after their early years in the Tamil film industry.
She acted in her first Telugu film with Sobhan Babu in Mr. Vijay . Her notable films in Telugu include Yamudiki Mogudu, State Rowdy, Raamudu Bheemudu, and Agni Parvatam. She has acted in around 16 films with Chiranjeevi, three films with Balakrishna and worked with all major heroes like NTR, ANR, Krishna, Shoban Babu and many more. Her glamour roles were brought out by K. Raghavendra Rao and A. Kodandarami Reddy.
Radha has done many Kannada films. She acted with veteran Vishnuvardhan and actress Lakshmi in Soubhagya Lakshmi, a remake of the Hindi film Maang Bharo Sajana. It in turn is a remake of a Telugu movie. She has done films with Ravichandran. In 1991, she did the movie Ranachandi with co-actors Sharat Babu, Ramesh Bhat, Mukhyamantri Chandru and Sudhir. In the film, she played a cop with Sharat Babu as her husband and Mukhyamantri Chandru as the villain. She had many stunts and fight sequences. It was a big hit in Kannada and is still remembered by Kannada movie-goers.
Radha acted only in a few Malayalam films, the most notable being K. G. George‘s state award winning film Irakal (1986). Her performance as Nirmala is widely regarded as one of the best in her career. She produced the Malayalam film Ayitham (1987) in which she played the lead role. She played significant roles in Sathyan Anthikad‘s Revathikkoru Pavakkutty (1986) and P. G. Viswambaran‘s Innathe Programme (1991).
