Sudha Chandran says airport officials ask her ‘to remove artificial limb' every time she visits, appeals to PM for a senior citizen's card

The 56-year-old actor took to her Instagram to share her ordeal in a video. Sharing the video, she wrote in the caption, “Totally hurt ....each time going thru this grill is very very hurting....hope my message reaches the state Nd central govt authorities....and expecting a prompt action ...”

After introducing herself as an actor and dancer, who made India proud by performing with artificial limbs, Sudha Chandran said in the video that each time she travels, she requests the CISF officials at airports to conduct an ETD (Explosive trace detector) but they ask her to “remove her artificial limb”.

Sudha Chandran added, “But every time that I go on my professional visits, each time, am stopped at the airport and when I request them at the security, to the CISF officers that please do an ETD (Explosive Trace Detector) for my artificial limb, they still want me to remove my artificial limb and show it to them. Is this humanly possible, Modi ji? Is this what our country is talking about? Is this the respect that a woman gives to another woman in our society? It is my humble request to you Modi ji that please give senior citizens a card that says they are senior citizens."

Actor Karanvir Bohra also reposted the video and wrote, “I totally agree with you #sudhaji there should be a facility made for such situations, in compete with you on this”. Sudhaa thanked the TV actor for his support and said that she is overwhelmed and glad after receiving support from people since she believes that this is a community fight and not an individual one.
