Sudha Chandran Asked To Remove Her Artificial Limb On Airport, Appeals To PM For Senior Citizen’s Card
Actress Sudha Chandran, known for playing negative roles is undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking vamps of Indian Television. Before foraying into acting, Chandran was more into dancing. She is a trained Bharatnatyam dancer. In 1981, the actress hurt her leg in a road accident near Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu while coming back from Madras with her parents. Because of the accident, Sudha lost her leg and since then, she is living with an artificial limb.
Recently, through a video, the actress has revealed that she is asked to remove her artificial limb for security checks each time she visits an airport. Along with the revelation of her ordeal, Sudha has urged PM Narendra Modi to issue her a senior citizen’s card for a better experience.
Sharing the video on her Instagram handle, the 56-year-old actress wrote, “Totally hurt ….each time going thru this grill is very very hurting….hope my message reaches the state Nd central govt authorities….and expecting a prompt action ..”
The video begins with the Naagin actress introducing herself as an actor and dancer, who made India proud by performing with artificial limbs. “Good evening, this is a very personal note that I want to tell to our dear Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji, this is an appeal to the central government, I am Sudha Chandran, an actress, and dancer by profession, who has danced with an artificial limb and created history and made my country very proud of me,” says the actress in the clip.
She then shares her plight and says, “But every time that I go on my professional visits, each time, am stopped at the airport and when I request them at the security, to the CISF officers that please do an ETD (Explosive Trace Detector) for my artificial limb, they still want me to remove my artificial limb and show it to them. Is this humanly possible, Modi ji? Is this what our country is talking about? Is this the respect that a woman gives to another woman in our society? It is my humble request to you Modi ji that please give senior citizens a card that says they are senior citizens.”
Extending his support, actor Karanvir Bohra reposted the video and wrote, ‘I totally agree with you #sudhaji there should be a facility made for such situations, in compete with you on this’.
The popular actress dancer received support from her fans and many other industry friends as well. She thanked all of them and said, “I am overwhelmed and glad after receiving support from people since I believe that this is a community fight and not an individual one.”
Let’s wait for our PM’s reply on the same. Till then, stay tuned for more updates.
