In a recent Instagram post, actress and dancer Sudhaa Chandran shared a video of her appealing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make things easier for disabled people who wear prosthetics. Sudhaa Chandran lost her leg in an accident but returned to dancing and acting again using a prosthetic foot. “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 Sudhaa 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. Despite requesting the airport authorities to conduct an ETD (Explosive Trace Detector) for her artificial limb, they ask me to remove it every time,” she said in her video message.

She also added, “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.”
Re-posting Sudhaa Chandran’s video on his Instagram feed, actor Karanvir Bohra extended his support and wrote: “I totally agree with you #sudhaji there should be a facility made for such situations.”
Sudhaa Chandran started her career in 1984, with the movie Mayuri that was based on her own life. The movie then went on to win the National Award. She has acted in a number of movies and Television soap operas. She is known for performances in shows like Naagin and Kaahin Kissii Roz.
