Rambha's original name is Vijayalakshmi. She was born in Vijayawada. After watching her one of the school plays, director Hariharan had cast her for the Malayalam film Sargam. Her onscreen name was Amrutha for that film. She then made her debut into Telugu cinema with the 1992 film Aa Okkati Adakku.

After that, Rambha went on to feature in many hit films like Muddula Priyudu, Allari Premikudu, Alluda Majaka, Bombay Priyudu, Hitler, Ganesh, and Bavagaru Bagunnara. During the 2000s, Rambha mainly appeared in cameos and special songs. She shook her legs in films like Mrugaraju, Naaga, Deshamuduru, and Yama Donga.
