Sudha Chandran, who has been entertaining the small screen audience for decades now, says that she enjoys playing characters with grey shades because such characters are completely opposite from what she is in real life and hence, playing them is quite exciting for them.
Talking to a leading entertainment portal, the seasoned actress said, “The so-called negative characters give you more scope to perform, because the length and breadth of your performance can go to any extent. At the same time, you cannot overdo it as then it becomes unreal and irritating on screen. I also love doing positive parts, so I keep experimenting.”
Chandran also spoke about her love for dance. “The point is that I do not like being given choices as all of them have their own definition. I love dancing on stage and that is the reason for my existence. I started as a dancer and am always connected to the stage. When you are performing and people clap and cheer for you, it is an amazing feeling.”
“As an actress, there are certain roles that you always want to play in real life and when you are actually playing it on screen you enjoy it all the more. Like I always wanted to be a doctor, but I could never become a doctor. There are certain negative aspects within me that would never come out maybe because of my upbringing and culture. But when I am playing a negative role, somewhere that dominant-negative element in me comes out and helps me to perform well,” she concluded.
Sudha Chandran is currently seen in Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural drama Naagin 6.
