This is a fun clip I found on YouTube that begins with a bunch of pics of South Indian (mostly Tamil) film stars, then shows Sayee Subbalakshmi dancing in Alibaba and the 40 Thieves. And this is a unique Sayee Subbalakshmi clip because three quarters into the video, Sayee and Subbalakshmi are actually labeled, so those who don’t know yet can see which one is which!
Speaking of Sayee Subbalakshmi, Sayee’s son S. Ratchagan has been writing to this blog for the past couple of days, providing a lot of good history about Sayee and Subbalakshmi and their family (which includes some very interesting singers, etc., as well), as part of long-ongoing comments to a post about this great dancing duo that I originally put up back in October 2008. Some people have already seen these latest comments because they are linked to from the comments list on the sidebar, but for those who haven’t, I very much recommend visiting that old post now for a lot of information that you probably haven’t read before. (Plus we have been promised yet more – which I am very much lookiing forward to!)
