Sudha Chandran (born 27 September 1965) is an Indian film and television actress and an accomplished Bharatanatyam dancer. In June 1981, she lost a leg due to gangrene following a road accident near Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu while coming back from Madras with her parents.[4] She, however, continued dancing, and subsequently went on to become an established Bharatnatyam dancer. Chandran is known for her roles of Ramola Sikand in Kaahin Kissii Roz, Yamini Singh Raheja in Naagin, Chitradevi in Deivam Thandha Veedu, the Tamil remake of Saath Nibhana Saathiya and Anand's first wife in Hum Paanch (Season two).

Early and personal life[edit]

Chandran was born in Mumbai to a Tamil family.[5] She had stated in an interview of Nettv4u, that she was born and raised in Mumbai, but her family originates from Vayaloor, Tiruchirapally, Tamil Nadu.[6] Her grand parents who were the fourth generation had migrated to Palakkad, Kerala. Her father worked at USIS and is a former actor. Chandran earned her B.A. from Mithibai College, Mumbai and subsequently an M.A. in Economics.[7]

In May 1981, while travelling in Tamil Nadu, Chandran met with an accident in which her legs were wounded. She received initial medical treatment of her injuries at a local hospital and was later admitted to Vijaya Hospital at Madras. After doctors discovered that gangrene had formed on her right leg, amputation was required.[8] Chandran says that this period was the toughest time of her life. She subsequently overcame her disability with the help of a prosthetic Jaipur foot.[9] She returned to dancing after a gap of two years and performed in India, Saudi Arabia, United States, UK, Canada, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain , Yemen and Oman . Her biography is part of curriculum for school children in the age group of 8-11.[10]

Chandran married assistant director Ravi Dang in 1994.[3] She was given an honorary doctorate by Invertis University, Bareily.

Career[edit]

Chandran started her career with a Telugu film 'Mayuri', which was based on her own life. The film was later dubbed in Tamil and Malayalam. It was also remade in Hindi as Naache Maayuri, where Chandran again played herself and co-starred with Shekhar Suman, Aruna Irani and Dina Pathak. She was awarded the 1986 Special Jury Award at the National Film Awards for her performance in Mayuri.

Chandran's notable shows on television include Kaahin Kissii Roz and K Street Pali Hill. She was a contestant on the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 2 in 2007. She appears as yamini in the 2015 TV serial Naagin.
