Early life

Sachu was born into a large family in Mylapore.Hailing from an orthodox family of musicians, lawyers and teachers, it was not smooth sailing for the young actress, but her talent acted as the decisive factor. Permission was granted by her lawyer-father. As she teamed up with her sister for Bharatanatyam recitals, her film career forged ahead. Film career

In 1953, Sachu, then less than four years old, was noticed by director A.C. Sami (of "Velaikkari" fame), who was in the process of casting her sister for a dance number. Sami cast her in the Bhanumathi-starrer "Rani", and for a scene, she had to cry. But Sachu just did not know how to cry! A quiet pinch did the trick. Then followed the Arignar Anna-scripted "Sorga Vaasal". As the younger Paro in Devadasu, her performance was endearing. The chubby-faced Sachu went on to fill the vacuum left by Baby Saroja.

Sachu performed with élan with the legends, be it Bhanumathi, Padmini, Anjali Devi, or Savithri. The evergreen "Maya Bazaar" was her first 100-day film, and in the film,she played the cherubic Kutti Vatsala (junior Savithri). Playing the junior version of S.Varalakshmi in "Shyamala" thrilled her no end since it starred the legendary Thyagaraja Bhagavathar. She then took a small break during which she spent the interim perfecting her dance, giving recitals and playing sister roles. Her first film as heroine in "Veera Thirumagan" with Anandan was screened in 1961.

Nextly, she was offered to play the role of a comedian and Nagesh's pair in the film Kadhalikka Neramillai, alongside Muthuraman, Nagesh, Kanchana, Suruli Rajan, `Thengai' Srinivasan, Thangavelu and M.R. Radha.

The 1970s saw her taking to the stage, and her first play was PVR's "Neerottam", where she played the famous Charu. She played a dual role in ARS' "Deviyar Iruvar".

Since then, Sachu has been lending her talents out and has successfully starred in over 500 films playing varied roles, and has starred alongside veteran actors such as Sivaji Ganesan, M. G. Ramachandran, Muthuraman, S. A. Ashokan, Nagesh, Suruli Rajan, Thengai Srinivasan, Thangavelu and M.R. Radha.

The late 1970s and 1980s saw her playing supporting roles in films alongside Rajinikanth, Kamal Hassan, Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh and many others, while she has also played mother and grandmother roles to younger actors such as Vijay, Surya, Karthik Muthuraman, Sakthi Vasu and many others. Television career

She moved onto the small screen in the 2000s and has starred in many serials such as Manbumigu Mayor", "Costly Mappilay", "Ananda Bhavan", "Dinesh Ganesh" and "Veetukku Veedu Looty", where she quotes that she had been able to act in roles which she coul not in cinema. Awards and nominations

A proud moment in Sachu's life was when she received the Kalaimamani award from Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in 1991 and the Thyaga Brahma Gana Sabha award, which was presented by M.S.Subbulakshmi. Also in 2012, Sri Krishna Gana Sabha in Chennai, honored Kumari Sachu with the Nadaga Soodamani award.

Hugh Bean and Sachu

Hugh Cecil Bean CBE (22 September 1929 – 26 December 2003) was an English violinist.

He was born in Beckenham. After lessons from his father from the age of five, he became a pupil of Albert Sammons (and Ken Piper) when he was nine years old. Later, he attended the Royal College of Music (RCM), where at age 17 he was awarded the principal prize for violin. A further year’s study with André Gertler at the Brussels Conservatory on a Boise Foundation travelling award brought him a double first prize for solo and chamber music playing, and with two other prizewinners he formed the Boise Trio.

He was appointed professor of violin at the RCM at the age of 24 and became a freelance London orchestral player, until he was made sub-leader and then leader (1956–67) of the Philharmonia Orchestra. He was co-leader of the BBC Symphony Orchestra from 1967 to 1969, when he resigned to concentrate on an independent career, but retained his membership (1966–76) of the Music Group of London. In 1989, he returned to the Philharmonia Orchestra as co-leader, and became Leader Emeritus.

Hugh Bean performed concertos with many leading orchestras, both in the UK and abroad. As a soloist his playing was distinguished by lyrical feeling and warmth of expression in addition to technical command. He recorded Edward Elgar's Violin Concerto for EMI with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Sir Charles Groves, and with the Philharmonia Orchestra he recorded Vivaldi's The Four Seasons with Leopold Stokowski, and Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending with Sir Adrian Boult. He made many recordings of chamber music with the Music Group of London, and together they toured extensively both performing and teaching in Europe, Scandinavia, The Middle and Far East (including four visits to China), Canada and North and South America.

During thirty-seven years as Professor of Violin at the Royal College of Music, over fifty of his pupils have found positions in London orchestras, including several as leaders. He was appointed FRCM in 1968, was awarded the Cobbett Gold Medal for chamber music in 1969 and created a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1970.

Bean contributed several accounts of the nature of conducting and especially of working with Otto Klemperer when Bean was concertmaster of Klemperer's Philharmonia orchestra. These accounts can be seen on the DVD program "The Art of Conducting."

Bean played a violin by Pietro Guarneri (Venice 1734), on extended loan from Amy Haswell-Wilson, and owned one by Carlo Tononi dated 1716. He was survived by his wife Mary, and one daughter.
