She has an elder sister, Jyothi and a younger sister, Deepthi(deceased). She had her primary education at Devaswom Board Higher Secondary School,Thiruvalla. Her mother was a maths teacher at the same school she studied.[3] She pusued Pre degree from NSS Hindu College, Changanacherry. This was where she was discovered by director Lenin Rajendran who cast her as the lead role in his film. This film was shelved and was never released. She then acted in her first movie Vivahitare Itihile (1986) directed by Balachandra Menon at the age of 16.

Parvathy met her future husband, Jayaram on the set of Aparan, at Udaya Studio in Alappuzha, in 1988. After her marriage on 7 September 1992, Parvathy stopped acting and later said that she has no regrets. "One spouse has to sacrifice their career, otherwise, it will be difficult to bring up the children properly. If there is a good salary earned by the husband why should the wife work?"[4]

Kalidas Jayaram won the National Film Award for Best Child Artist for his work in the film Ente Veedu Appuvinteyum (2003), in which he acted in along with his father, Jayaram.[5] Currently she resides at Valasaravakkam, Tamil Nadu with family.
