P.K. Rosy, who became the first female lead in Malayalam cinema, is honored in today’s Doodle. Rosy Rajamma was born in Thiruvananthapuram, formerly Trivandrum, Kerala’s capital, on this date in 1903.
Rosy started acting when she was young. Rosy broke barriers with her performance in the Malayalam film Vigathakumaran (The Lost Child) during a time when many parts of society discouraged performing arts, particularly for women.
Rosy’s story is relevant to discussions about media representation, despite the fact that she was never recognized for her work. Many people today take her story as a source of motivation and inspiration.
Thank you for your courage and the legacy you leave behind, P.K. Rosy.
