Singers condole death of Chitra's daughter
The South Indian music industry shared the grief of noted playback singer KS Chitra, who lost her eight-year-old daughter in a swimming pool accident in Dubai on Thursday.
"The family came back from Dubai this (Friday) morning and the funeral was held in the evening," Chitra's manager Krishna Kutty Menon told
A person in Chitra's household told
that the entire household was in tears.
Chitra had been to Dubai alongwith her family to perform in AR Rahman's music show and was staying in a villa there when the accident happened.
Nandana, a differently-abled child, fell into the pool while playing.
She was born in 2002, 15 years after Chitra and Vijayashankar's marriage.
A devotee of Hindu god Krishna, Chitra had named her daughter after she got an award from the Kerala government for her song in the Malayalam movie
"It is very sad to hear. Chitra is such a humble person. Despite winning several awards and being a celebrity she does not have any airs," a media professional told
Playback singers SP Balasubramaniam, P Susheela, Janaki, Mano and many others visited Chitra's home to pay their condolences.
