Sujata Kumar was a cancer survivor. Back in 2012, when she appeared in English Vinglish, she was quoted as saying how happy she was that Gauri Shinde had thought of casting her in English Vinglish. Before that, while she had done a few TV serials like Hotel Kingston (Star One) and Bombay Talking (Zee Cafe), but it wasn’t till English Vinglish that she became a popular face. She also appeared in Anil Kapoor’s 24 as Meghna Singhania. She has worked in a couple of other Bollywood films like Karan Johar’s Gori Tere Pyar Mein and Aanand L Rai’s Raanjhanaa, both in 2013. She also appeared several TV adverts.
