Behind the glamour and glitz of Bollywood, there are some celebrities having physical deficiencies who have struggled a lot to rise to fame without letting their defects overcome their achievements.

Some of these stars who really overcame their physical defects with their brilliant works include Sudha Chandran and Hrithik Roshan.

Chandran had to get her leg amputated after her leg became gangrenous following a road accident at Tamil Nadu’s Tiruchirapalli in 1981 and later regained some mobility with the help of a prosthetic Jaipur foot.

Chandran, who was already an expert in the classical dance Bharatnatyam, returned to dancing after a gap of two years and went on to inspire many with her dance.

Apart from performing in various countries, Chandran also became a successful film and television actor.

She also proceeded to do a gamut of films and serials in several languages – Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telegu, Marathi and Bengali.

Moreover, eminent Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan who is known as one of the finest dancers in the country, had said in several interviews that he had felt isolated during childhood and many of his classmates used to avoid him as he was born with an extra thumb on his right hand.

He also admitted that his stammering also caused him problems during school at childhood.

However, Roshan had acquired a large number of fans across the country after his flawless acting in a number of movies in addition to his superb dancing skills.

He is also involved in a number of humanitarian causes.
