  1. Hi
    I want to know about Chitra’s later life ,post retirement, her family etc. Also i want to know whether she was financially in poor form lately?
    Please reply.

    • If you have read that interview of Chitra, it looks like she wasn’t in very good form financially, but she wasn’t poor either. I don’t think she had any children. Other than that, I don’t have more details about her personal life.
