Disco Shanti is the daughter of Tamil actor C. L. Anandan, who starred in many films, such as "Vijayapuri Veeran" and "Kaattumallika." She has a younger sister actress Lalitha Kumari. She married Telugu actor Sri Hari in 1996 and stopped working in movies. The couple had two sons and a daughter. Their daughter, Akshara, died when she was just four months old. The family started Akshara Foundation in her memory, which aims to supply villages with fluoride-free water and students with school supplies. They also adopted four villages in Medchal.
