Rajeshwari Sachdev started her career on stage doing plays with The Indian People's Theatre Association at Prithvi. She went on to doing films winning the Maharashtra State Government Award for Best Actress in her debut film "Aaytya Gharat Gharoba" directed by Sachin. Her role in Shyam Benegal's "Sardari Begum" got her the National Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. She blazed the television screen in Margarita & bagged the Screen Videocon Award for Best Actress. Rajeshwari's big break came in the form of the Hollywood epic "Little Buddha" opposite Keanu Reeves and directed by Bernado Bertolucci. Being a performing artist it was only but natural that this ball of talent went on to explore new fields. With 13 years of training in Bharat Natyam, the only other field left to explore was singing. As of 2004 she has three pop CDs; "Hulle Hullare", "Mukhda Piya Ka" and "Ummang". Her father is Inderjit Sachdev, an actor, too.
