At the age of 16, he had to amputate his right leg, yet he did not lose courage. But since childhood, Sudha, who was fond of dance, was unable to walk after the operation and her mind kept cursing her luck while lying on the bed.

She started feeling that her life was destroyed due to not having a leg and she would never be able to dance anymore. They also thought that now their future went completely into darkness. Because Sudha had cherished the dream of becoming a great dancer since childhood.

But an accident overturned his life, he felt as if everything was over, after the accident, the people of the society started seeing Sudha Chandran with kindness and poorness. But then Sudha Chandran took a vow, now, whatever happens, something has to be done so that people can show that there was no accident in their life.

After some time Sudha was put on an artificial leg, after which he started walking again slowly. Sudha was encouraged and forgetting the traumatic accident, started focusing on her dream again. But it was not easy for them to walk and dance by putting fake feet, many times they kept falling while walking and they had a lot of trouble while dancing, even then they practiced dance day and night.
