Indian actress, Sandhya Mridul, who is best known for her roles on television shows like Swabhimaan, Banegi Apni Baat to movies like Page 3, Saathiya and more celebrates her birthday on March 28. The most interesting part about the actress is that she ditched the typical role of a heroine in movies and carved a niche for herself. She’s that bold woman who never wanted to dance around heroes and tress and be just a glam doll in Hindi films. On and all, she’s a feisty woman whose work over the years speaks volumes and that’s the reason she’s one of the versatile gems we have in the fraternity right now.
