Her father Ajith is an employee of IOB and her mother Maya is known as a beautician. She has an elder brother, Rahul. She attended Vidyodaya Girls Higher Secondary School, Chennai until completing Class 9.
Sandhya was studying when she starred in the Tamil love story Kaadhal. The role was offered to many known actresses, including Ileana D’Cruz and then Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, but the latter’s father was reluctant to let her become an actress at the time. The team then picked Saranya in Class IX, when cinematographer Vijay Milton referred her to Balaji Sakthivel. She was initially considered to play the heroine in the film, but finally, the role was later handed to Sandhya, after the director felt Saranya looked too young.
After the success of the film Kaadhal, in 2004, she took up a Malayalam film titled Alice in Wonderland which she played the sister of actor Jayaram. Then came the musical romance Dishyum with Jeeva. In her third Tamil film, Vallavan, she had only a small role, and the film had only modest box office success. She also acted in Koodal Nagar with Bharath. After the success of Cycle, she shifted her focus to Malayalam cinema.
