Padmini, one of the ‘Travancore sisters’, was not only an actress who worked in over 250 films in three languages, but also a trained Bharathnatyam dancer. She was launched at the age of 14 with Uday Shankar’s 1948 film ‘Kalpana’ and acted for next three decades. She has shared the screen with legends like Shammi Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Rajkumar, N.T. Rama Rao among others. Two of her most significant films are ‘Mera Naam Joker‘ and ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’. Her rivalry with contemporary dancer-actress Vyjayanthimala was of much speculation. Padmini passed away in 2006, at the age of 74.
