Jayasudha (Telugu:జయసుధ) is an actress-turned-MLA for the Congress in Secunderabad. She was a famous South Indian actress from the 1970s and 1980s, with most of her films being Telugu films. She has also worked in Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and three Hindi films. Jayasudha was born as Sujatha in Madras, Tamil Nadu on 17 December 1958 to a Telugu speaking family. Her aunt is the famous actress and director Vijaya Nirmala. Jayasudha made her film debut when she was twelve years old as Jamuna's daughter in the Telugu film Panduntikaapuram (1972). Soon, she acquired the name "Jayasudha," since there was already another actress named Sujatha acting in films. The celebrated director K. Balachander gave her a break with the Tamil films Arangetram and Apoorva Raagangal. Her fame quickly spread, where Telugu film producers were offering her good film roles. While her debut role as heroine in the Telugu film Lakshmana Rekha (1975) got her attention, it was really the title role in Jyothi (1976 film) (remake of the Hindi film Mili starring Jaya Bhaduri) that made her a huge star in Telugu films. She was now called a successor to the great Telugu actress Savitri and performed many strong roles
