Pushpavalli’s daughter defied the conventional heroine mold and broke many Bollywood stereotypes. She was dark-skinned, had a 33-inch waist and didn’t speak any Hindi. Only a month old and four films in hand. The new city and a new life also came with a new name for Bhanurekha Ganesan, a name without a surname. All her films had the same name in the credit roll for lead actress.
