It was called Nanda, in the Sanskrit language, which means “without defilement”. The meaning means that Nanda was neither defiled nor sanctified. According to Hinduism, Nanda was born when King Veeraballa went on a campaign and crossed the river Ganga to the far east. There he encountered the bodhisattvas. They transformed him into a sage by reciting a verse from the scriptures – “Nanda the sage, king of kings, seated in milky water by the side of Ganga, he does not drink water, but gives up himself to the lord”.
When the king reached his capital, he invited the bodhisattvas to have tea with him. He was so moved by their visit that he conferred a knighthood upon them. However, when he went to celebrate the first Diwali in his home, instead of presenting the knighthood to the bodhisattvas, he presented Judi, his daughter, as the king’s heir apparent.
Today, Judi isn’t just the princess of Rajasthan; she is also known for her brilliant acting skills. In fact, she has acted in over 80 films and earned millions of dollars! Judi was born in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, and grew up in an elite family. Her father, who was a judge, treated Judi and her mother very well. She also had a close relationship with her mother, an acclaimed author, who wrote many novels on Indian law and social norms, and encouraged Judi to follow her heart.
When Judi was young, her mother persuaded her to try out for any part in a drama when she was cast in a movie. After that failed attempt, her mother suggested that she try out for a role in an Indian comedy talk show called ‘Aabir’. She didn’t get the part, but managed to appear in one episode, which propelled her into Bollywood. Nowadays, Judi isn’t just an actress; she’s become one of the biggest actresses in Bollywood.
It wasn’t easy for Judi to get the kind of recognition that she deserved. When she appeared in her first television role in a Hindi movie, her performance was criticized by Hindi film directors for being too Western. She responded by quitting the film industry and moving back to London. She then appeared in the movie serials Bhaidooj and later in Kismet Konnection. From there, Judi carved out a name for herself as an erudite and formidable television actress. She has gone on to enjoy some successful movies, including Aabir, Dibak and Hrut.
