Born as Raj Kaur Sachdev is known for playing the role of Sakina in Sardari Begum for which she won the best-supporting actress in the National Film Award (1996). This multitalented actress was born in Mumbai in 1975.
She did her graduation from Guru Nanak Khalsa College (King's Circle). She started her acting career with a Marathi film directed by Sachin although the language was not known to her she impressed everybody with her acting talent.
It was just the start of magnificent journey of her acting career.
Shyam Benegal cast her in all his movies since the 1990s, Suraj Ka Satvan Ghoda, Mammo, Samar, Hari-Bhari (Salma), Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero (Capt. Lakshmi Sahgal) and Welcome to Sajjanpur (Salma).
She also worked in a TV series “Samvidhan” again directed by Shyam Benegal. Apart from acting, she is also a trained singer and her song “hulle hullare” was very famous and regular in all the TV channels. She got married to
Varun Badola (Astitva...Ek Prem Kahani ) fame in 2004.
It was not love at first sight for both as they have already acted in two or three movies by then. It’s been ten years of their marriage, but they still love each other madly. They respect each other individuality which is the key to success in any marriage. We wish her all the best or her upcoming projects.
