Sukumari സുകുമാരി (6 October 1940[1] – 26 March 2013) was an Indian film actress who has primarily acted in Malayalam and Tamil films. She had been acting since she was 10 years old[2] and has acted in various roles. The total number of her films is presumed to be more than 3000. In 2003, she was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India for her contributions towards the arts. And she won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Namma Gramam(2010).[3] Sukumari died on 26 March 2013 following a heart attack while under treatment for burn injuries received while lighting the traditional lamp at a function in Chennai.[4]

Career

She was born in Nagercoil, erstwhile Travancore State, now at Tamil Nadu in 1940.[5] Sukumari is a first cousin of the Travancore Sisters, Lalitha, Padmini and Ragini (their mothers are sisters). She learned dance with the sisters and mastered dance forms like Keralanadanam, Kathakali and Bharathanatyam.[6] She went for an all-India tour with the sisters. Sukumari was noticed by a director when she went to the sets of a film with Padmini, and she debuted in the lead role in the Tamil film Orarivu.[6]. She has acted in various Malayalam films of the black and white age, like Chettathi, Kusruthikkuttan, Kunjali Marakkar, Thacholi Othenan, Yakshi and Karinizhal. She later became popular acting in various films of Priyadarshan like Poochakkoru Mookkuthi, Oodarathuammava Aalariyam, Boeing Boeing and Vandanam. She was also noticed in various films directed by Balachandra Menon like Manicheppu Thurannappol and Karyam Nissaram.[6] In later years she played a major role in Nizhalkkuthu (2002) directed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan.[7] She had played many notable mother roles. She has acted in films in Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu and Hindi, and used her own voice in all languages without using dubbing artists.[6]

Personal Life

Sukumari married director A. Bhimsingh in 1959. He died in 1978. The couple has a son, Suresh.[8]

Illness and death

On 20 February 2013, Sukumari sustained injuries while lighting the traditional lamp at a function in Chennai. She was subsequently admitted to a private hospital in Chennai an underwent plastic surgery. However on 26 March, she died of a heart attack she had suffered from while recovering. Following her death, South Indian personalities including Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and Kerala's Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy offered their condolences.[9]

Hi admin. It was hard to find this site in google.
It's not even in top10. You should focus on hq backlinks from top websites in your niche.
I know of a very effective free method to get strong backlinks and instant traffic.
The best thing about this method is that you start
getting clicks right away. For more info search in google for;
