Yes, once again, it’s the eldest Travancore Sister! The other day I also saw a fantastic dance that she did with Padmini in the 1958 movie Raja Rajan. (Though I had to sift through the movie without subs for a while before getting to it. Unfortunately, there are no publicly available clips of that dance.) For months and months, I couldn’t find a scene with Lalitha anywhere, and the past few days I’ve almost been tripping over them! But reportedly, she did not become as interested in films as the other two sisters, so she was not in nearly as many as Ragini or, espeically, Padmini. That’s too bad, because it is a joy to see her too.
[Checking back on this post a few years later and I see that unfortunately, the clip is no longer there. I will have to find something to replace it. But I must keep the post up because of all the interesting comments!]
