Sadhana is what we can call the accidental actor. Spotted by Ram, the young actor played an important role in his second film Thanga Meenkal, that rechristened her as Chellamma to the Tamil audiences. Little did she expect that she would get a National award for her performance. After all, nobody had expected her to act in the first place. “My family has always been ardent supporters of art but they never expected that someone from the family would act in films. My mother just asked me to give it a shot and see if I am able to do it.” The reception, Ram’s confidence and of course, all were a surreal surprise. “On one hand, we were all so elated, and on the other hand I wasn’t even sure if I deserved it,” she says unassumingly. The talented actor is now back with Ram’s upcoming film Peranbu, where she shares the screen with Mammootty and also takes on the challenge of playing an adolescent girl affected by cerebral palsy.
