Can anyone tell me who this actress is? This is a film still from 1940; by this time she was already well-established (she had begun acting in the silent era) and she went on to have a long and illustrious career in Hindi cinema.
My good friend Raja knew that she is the lovely Lalita Pawar, one of my favorite character actresses of all time. She gave an interview which I am attaching here as a pdf giving details of her introduction to films as a child, and the accident which ended her days as a heroine and gave her that one=eyed squint which has been her hallmark since. I don’t remember how I came to have this, but if you know please remind me and I’ll give you and the appropriate publication due credit!
