Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi and Telugu star and classical dancer born in Trivandrum. Second, and best-known, of the 3 famed Travancore sisters (Ragini and Lalitha). Dance training under Guru Gopinath. Debut in Uday Shankar's dance spectacular Kalpana, followed by roles in S.M. Sreeramulu Naidu and Sundarrao Nadkarni's productions. Then acted in several Tamil films, with both MGR (Madurai Veeran) and Sivaji Ganesan (Verapandiya Kattaboman, Thillana Mohanambal, Vietnam Veedu).

First major Hindi role in Gemini's Mr Sampat but mainly associated with Raj Kapoor (Jis Desk Mein Ganga Behti Hai, Mera Naam Joker). Known mainly as a Bharat Natyam dancer (cf. Thillana Mohanambat) and actress in sentimental melodramas (typically Adhyapika). Left films briefly in the late 70s when she moved to the USA, making her comeback in 1984.
