Devadarshini was born in Tamil Nadu to Telugu parents. Her parents are both retired principals; she has a sister. She studied commerce in college and pursued a master's degree in Applied Psychology some years later.

While still in college, she began anchoring television shows. She was then offered an opportunity to act in the Doordarshan serial Kanavugal Ilavasam, which led to her landing a role in the successful mystery series Marmadesam by Naga. Devadarshini became part of the series' second installment, Vidathu Karuppu, which she considers a "big turning point" in her life as it established her in the industry.
