  1. Very happy to introduce this to you, Pacifist!

    I don’t know if you saw my Facebook post about this, but… In this film, Teen Batti Char Rasta, Sandhya was directed to resemble Lata in visual style. (Although not necessarily with the dark makeup, since that was to fit the biggest plot element of the movie, that she was a singer who would encounter bias when seen in person because she was so dark.) But the braid and the attire and probably some of the mannerisms… All of that was modeled after Lata. Knowing that, I picked up a couple of the old Lata pictures that I had in my archives, and it makes perfect sense. It almost looks as though the Lata shown in those pictures is singing in this scene!
