Just over a century ago, Anita Delgado, a beautiful Spanish dancer, caught the eye of the Maharaja of Kapurthala and married him. She left her homeland to live for 18 years in opulent luxury in the Himalayan foothills with Jagatjit Singh. After her marriage, Anita Delgado came to be known as Prem Kaur. The Princess of Kapurthala was a popular face and was present at most important events at that time. At our online talk #DancerToPrincess, film producer Juan Antonio Casado will take us through her fascinating journey.
