She made the dark world of vamps on the small screen fashionable with her saris, elaborate bindis and chunky jewellery. But veteran actress-danseuse Sudha Chandran says she wants her performance to speak for her and be her Â“style statementÂ”.
Sudha, an accomplished Bharatnatyam dancer who pursued her passion with a Jaipur foot after losing a leg early on in her life, took the world of television by a storm with her performance with shades of grey in TV show Â“Kaahin Kissii RozÂ”. Now, she is back on the celluloid with Â“NaaginÂ” in a positive avatar.
Asked how she will take the fashion quotient a notch higher this time, she said: Â“I want my performance to be my style statement. This time we have worked on a couple of things. LetÂ’s see how far it goesÂ”.
Â“NaaginÂ”, which is aired on Colors channel, brings to the small screen a whimsical world of snakes who can take human form. It unfolds a love story with conflicting feelings and underlying emotions of revenge. Sudha plays role of mother of the male protagonist, essayed by Arjun Bijlani.
The actress says she walks onto a set with an Â“open mindÂ”, and she trusts the director.
Â“I’m a directorÂ’s actress. I believe that they have conceived the show. It is their baby…It becomes easier when the director tells character’s starting point. It gives a basic background of the role and then you can put in all other ingredients with experience,Â” she said.
