Senior actress Sudha Chandran who has just got free post her commitments with Naagin and Pardes Mein Hai Meraa Dil, has taken a small sabbatical from acting to spend quality time with her family.
Says Sudha, “I have just finished Naagin and Pardes. I have taken a one month actual gap, until something good comes up. I have been missing my family, and want to spend time with them.”
Talking about her comeback vehicle Naagin that has given her all the acclaim, Sudha avers, “My comeback in Hindi was brilliant, that too after doing my South projects for four years. In fact, everyone had written me off in the Hindi circuit. There were even speculations of me having moved to Chennai, and having started a production house there. So after Naagin 1 and Naagin 2 happened to me, people now are sure of the fact that I belong to Mumbai (smiles).”
On her overall Naagin journey, the actress explains “It is very important to get noticed in the role you do. Considering that, Yamini has been the most important character. In Naagin 1, my character was totally negative. And in Naagin 2, I got to do a little bit of comedy. People really loved it. And I am happy that as an actor, I have been able to do any role that has come my way.”
“As a contrast, my character in Pardes was very different. I played the very classy, upmarket lady. My role was supposed to be a cameo and it was nice,” adds Sudha.
Remind her that she has had a long-standing fruitful association with Ekta Kapoor and Balaji Telefilms, and she expresses her excitement saying, “Working with Balaji is like a home coming for me. It gives me a feeling that I have left my ‘sasuraal’ and got back to my ‘maayka’.”
While it is complete family time for Sudha, she will also keep herself busy by judging a dance reality show on Zee Tamil, titled Zee Dance League. “I need to shoot for one day in a month. So I am looking forward to judging the show. I will be judging it with South actors Sneha and Ambika.”
Finally, we could not stop ourselves from asking her about the probability of Naagin 3, to which the actress states, “We don’t know anything. Nobody actually knows what is in Ekta’s mind.”
Here’s wishing you lot of success, Sudha!!
