Sudha Kongara Biography

Sudha Kongara Education

In Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, Sudha Kongara was born to parents who spoke Telugu. It was in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, where Sudha spent her formative years [4]. She graduated from Women’s Christian College, Chennai, with a double major in history and journalism.

Sudha Kongara Early Life

Vishakapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India is the place of Sudha Kongara’s birth on March 29th, 1971. She has settled in Chennai for the time being. Sudha is a director and screenwriter from India who primarily works in Tamil films. Andhra Andagadu, a Telugu film she directed in 2008, marked her first feature-length film behind the camera. She directed the 2016 Tamil film Irudhi Suttru, which earned her the Filmfare Award for Best Director (Saala Khadoos in Hindi). She also directed the Telugu version of the film, titled Guru (2017). The English film Mitr, My Friend was written by Kongara (2002). She served as Mani Ratnam’s assistant dean for seven years. Andhra Andagadu, a Telugu film she directed in 2008 and which starred Krishna Bhagavaan, bombed at the box office.

Sudha Kongara Career

For the English film Mitr, My Friend, Kongara served as a scriptwriter (2002). For seven years, she served as Mani Ratnam’s associate director. In 2008, she made her directing debut with the critically panned Telugu film Andhra Andagadu, which starred Krishna Bhagavaan.  While filming her debut feature as a filmmaker, Drohi (2010), in Tamil, Kongara started work on a script for a boxing-themed sports drama film she would later title Irudhi Suttru. The film’s financial viability was greatly improved by her decision to approach Madhavan for the main part in the middle of 2013. He was taking a break from Tamil films at the time.

 They had worked together before when Sudha was an assistant director on one of Madhavan’s films directed by Mani Ratnam. She dubbed her Telugu adaptation of Irudhi Suttru “Guru.” Her subsequent film, Soorarai Pottru, is based on the real-life story of Air Deccan’s founder, Captain GR Gopinath, and was produced by Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and co-produced by Guneet Monga of Sikhya Entertainment.
