P.K. Rosy was born in 1903 in Trivandrum and grew up in Kavalur where she worked as a laborer along with her family members. Despite coming from a family of grass-cutters, who were considered to be part of the sub-caste Dalits, Rosy developed a passion for theatre at a young age.

Rosy’s breakthrough into the cinema industry came with her role in the silent film Vigathakumaran. The film followed the story of the kidnapping of a rich man’s son and Rosy played the role of a Nair woman. This move was contested by many members of the film industry, as they were not pleased to see a Dalit woman playing a Nair woman.
