Sudha was born on 27 September 1965. Though she was born and brought up in Mumbai, her family is originally from Vayalur, Tiruchirappalli in Tamil Nadu. Sudha’s father Late K.D. Chandran worked as the chief librarian with USIS, Mumbai.
He was also an actor and has worked in several Hindi films such as Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Koi Mil Gaya, and China Gate. Sudha’s mother Thangam, a classical singer was a homemaker.
Sudha met Ravi Dang, an associate director for the first time in connection with acting in a film. According to the actress, it was not love at first sight. Eventually, a friendship developed between the two, and Ravi started accompanying Sudha to auditions.
For 6 years, there was a rock-solid friendship between Sudha and Ravi. Later they both realized that a strong feeling of companionship had developed between them. Though Sudha wanted to marry Ravi, her mother had objections to her daughter marrying someone from the industry.
Moreover, Ravi was a Punjabi, and Sudha’s mother wanted her daughter to marry a Tamil Brahmin. Later, Sudha somehow convinced her mother, and finally, she married Ravi in 1995 at a temple in Chembur.
The couple decided not to have kids and have not even adopted a child, as both of them do not believe in that ideology.

An undeterred Sudha decided to go back to dance. She delivered her first comeback performance at St. Xavier’s College and received a standing ovation for performing Vaaranyam with ease on that stage.
In 1985, Sudha acted in ‘Mayuri’, her first movie directed by Singeetam Srinivasa Rao in Telugu. The story of the movie was based on Sudha’s real-life story.
