Marriage to Sri Harsha
Saroja Devi was not a feminist. She has been quoted as saying that man was too important a part of a woman's life to be ignored. Her marriage in 1967 to engineer Sri Harsha cemented this fact. Her husband had reportedly no qualms about her star status, and was a 'complete gentleman,' to quote Sivaji Ganesan himself.
The fact that she was careful not to involve herself in too many controversies and scandals obviously helped. She understood the movie-world well, and was careful to operate within its framework.
