From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sudha Chandran (born 1964) (Tamil: சுதா சந்திரன்) is an Indian film and television actress, who turned to acting following the loss of one leg in an accident in May 1981.


Early life and education

She hails from a South Indian family as a result of which she was very much academically inclined. She did her B.A from Mithibai College, Mumbai and followed it up with M.A in Economics. While returning from there to the South she met with an accident in which she had to get her right leg amputated. She believes that was the toughest time of her life but soon she overcame her disability with the help of a prosthetic 'Jaipur foot' to become one of the most highly acclaimed dancers of the Indian subcontinent. Her decision of coming back to the dancing arena after a brief gap of two years was met by a thunderous applause. She received invitations from all over the world for performances and she was honoured with various awards after she performed as far as the European countries, Canada and the Middle East. Soon after she catapulted to fame and recognition by venturing into the world of films and television.


The 1984 Telugu film Mayuri in which she plays herself was inspired by her story. The 1986 film Nache Mayuri was a Hindi remake of the Telugu original, in which the cast was changed except for Sudha to suit the North Indian sensibilities. She was awarded the 1986 Special Jury Award at the National Film Awards for her performance in the film Mayuri. She is perhaps best known for her role in the 1994 film Anjaam which also stars Madhuri Dixit and Shahrukh Khan.

In the Ekta Kapoor produced serial, Kaahin Kissii Roz, she portrayed the character called "Ramola Sikand" which became an instant hit. She is considered to be one of the more flamboyant stars on Indian television, known for her avant garde sarees, chunk jewellery and designer bindis.

Since then she has acted in several other TV serials such as K Street Pali hill in which she played the character of Gayatri Kaul.The Drama was produced by Ekta Kapoor for star plus. She has also portrayed the role of a rich bratty man's mother in a drama called Kuch Iss Tara which telcasts on Sony TV and was also produced by Ekta Kapoor. Recently, she has participated in a Dance reality show, 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa', on Sony TV. She has also acted in a Tamil serial broadcasted in Sun TV, titled 'Kalasam' for the role of the antagonist Chandramathi and had Ramya Krishnan in the lead role. She is now into the role of 'Madurai' Thilakavathy in Sun TV's Tamil serial 'Arasi' which has Radhika Sarathkumar in lead role. She plays a lawyer in that serial.
