Quiz Question: Identify the actor

This is a quote from an article in the New York Times.

"Where Dawn comes up like thunder - Also Talkies in Urdu and Hindustani, Myths, Blurb-writers and a Child star" - New York Times, May 31, 1936.
The annual issue of India's chief film magazine, however, floats a full-page advertisement in tri-color announcing in the international monotone of the blurb writer, "Bravo India, thy sons and daughters deserve unlimited admiration. Heaven be praised! Shirley Temple, Hollywood's child star is now excelled by Baby Rani, 5 years old, India's youngest child star who has done wonders in Bai Jaddan-bai's "Talash-e-Hag" or "The Search for Truth", a Sangeet production, remarkably wonderful, now being lavishly produced.
Question. How do we know Baby Rani better?
