The veteran actress shared a video on her Instagram and spoke about the incident, she said: “This is an appeal to the central government and the state government, I am Sudhaa Chandran, an actor and dancer by profession. I have danced with an artificial limb and created history, making my country proud. But every time I go on my professional visits, each time, I am stopped at the airport, and when I request them at the security, to the CISF officials, that please do an ETD (Explosive Trace Detector) test for my artificial limb, they still want me to remove my artificial limb and show it to them. Is it humanly possible Modi ji?”
Further, she said: “Is this what our country is talking about? Is this the respect that a woman gives another woman in our society? It is my humble request to you Modi ji that please give us a card just like senior citizens have.”
