Rajasulochana no more
Veteran south Indian actress Rajasulochana who breathed her last yesterday will always be remembered for her dancing skills. She appeared only in dance numbers in some films. Known for her versatility, Rajasulochana acted as the main lead and as a character artiste with ease. She was perhaps the first among the heroines to portray sophisticated characters with shades of grey.
In 1953, Rajasulochana made her cinematic debut with Kannada film Gunasagari . She has acted in approximately over 250 films across Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.
She founded ‘Pushpanjali Nritya Kala Kendram’, a dance school, in 1961 in Chennai.
Some of her best films include Babruvahana , Sri Kalahasti Mahatyam and Todi Kodallu . She was married to Telugu director C.S. Rao.
