In a recent interview with Tamil magazine, Vikatan, Saberna had said that while the male actors even at the age of 60 continue to play lead roles in the films, the female actors struggle to find good projects and eventually end up as television artiste. The report said that while the interviewer tried to light up the mood of the interview by asking light-hearted questions. Sabarna’s responses remained largely emotional.

Talking to the media, some of her friends described Saberna as bold but sensitive who took friendship and other relationships seriously. Meanwhile, it is also said that she had a troubled relationship with a man, whose identity remains unknown. The 29-year-old actor, who hails from Mettupalayam in Coimbatore preferred to live alone, although her parents Anandkumar and Pushpalatha and brother Aneesh were residing in Virugambakkam in Chennai.

She started her career as a TV anchor and appeared in several popular Tamil television soap operas like Pasamalar on Sun TV. She even appeared on Star Vijay, where she even hosted a cookery show. She has also played minor roles, in films like Dhanush’s Padikathavan, Vishal’s Poojai and Simbu’s Kaalai.
