Google doodle celebrates 120th birthday of first female lead in Malayalam cinema | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Google on Friday dedicated a doodle to PK Rosy, the first female lead in Malayalam cinema, on the occasion of her 120th birthday. Rosy was born in 1903 in Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram, formerly Trivandrum.
Rosy’s passion for acting began at a young age. In an era when performing arts was discouraged in many sections of the society, especially for women, she broke barriers with her role in the Malayalam film ‘Vigathakumaran (The Lost Child)’.
Though she never received recognition for her work during her lifetime, Rosy’s story is relevant to conversations about representation in the media. Today, her story serves as motivation and inspiration for many.
