Miscellaneous Info – Laxmi Chhaya was nine when she appeared in her first film Talaq (1958) – director Mahesh Kaul had spotted her among the guests on the sets. Three years later came Bada Aadmi (1961) which established her as a dancing star. She appeared as a dancer in many Hindi Films of the 60s and 70s. Although a very versatile actress, she was never able to make it big as a leading lady. One of the few films where she was cast as a heroine including Jahan Jagey Wahan Savera opposite Kumar Ajit (Dharmendra’s brother) and Jinki Duniya Mein Roshni Nahin Hoti opposite Vikram were shelved, further ruining her chances as the leading lady. She faded from the film scene in the early 1980s.
