In little over a year Malayalam cinema Has lost arguably its best-ever on-screen pair.
The evergreen KPAC Lalitha passed on February 22, 2022, and The inimitable Innocent left a void on March 26, 2023.
Such was their on-screen camaraderie that Innocent famously said Lalitha got The best out of him.
Their combination was so regular yet never a dull one. When asked about their popular pairing, Lalitha said In 2014: “Innocent comes to The sets thinking he will Have Kavya Madhavan or some young actress as co-star. And then he will find out that I’m His co-star. For Priyadarshan’s Aamayum Muyalum, he came With a lot of expectations. But waiting for him was me, again.”
