Reshma Gajjar, now called ‘the girl in yellow’,has become the face of the opening sequence of the award-winning musical

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s La La Land has many remarkable visuals that stay with the viewers long after they leave the theatre. The Indian viewer gets one such moment at the beginning of the film, when we see a brown girl leading its opening number, Another Day of Sun. A little research later, we found the girl in the yellow dress - Reshma Gajjar - who’s been mentioned in movie reviews everywhere (The New York Times calls her the ‘ingénue in the yellow dress). Brunch spoke to the very talented actor and dancer tracing her journey from her Indian roots to the stages of La La Land and beyond.
