Greener pastures in other language film industries are not just snatching our acting talents, singers too are quick picks. Singer Latha Krishna, who is getting more invites from the neighbouring K-Town, is an example. The girl entered playback singing in Mollywood with a couple of songs at the beginning of the 2010s. In the latest Tamil flick Kaalakkoothu starring Prasanna and Dhansika in the lead, her share is two songs.

Like a few fortunate youngsters, a music reality show in Malayalam has brought her the honour to be a part of the film world. Notwithstanding the film projects, Latha found time to hone her singing talents in the same old reality platform, but in Tamil.

 

“I was in the final six of Star Vijay’s Super Singer. Alongside, I do a lot of stage shows and tours. I’d be accompanying the team of S.P. Balasubramaniam sir’s music world tour,” says Latha.

Though few in number, her voice has gifted some soulful melodies in M-Town, Sayam Sandhye... in Sufi Paranja Katha and Pinne Ennodonnum...from Shikkar. In Malayalam, after Monayi Angane Aanayi and Madhura Naranga, we did not hear her voice.

It looks like Latha enjoys keeping herself busy. Apart from being a singer behind the screen and on-stage, she is pursuing masters in music from the Madras University. The only thing that she’d kept on backburner are the calls to host television shows.

 

“In Tamil television, I have played anchor to many shows. In Malayalam, in almost all prominent channels, I have done music shows. Now time constraints have forced me to stay away from taking up such tasks,” she reasons.

Even amid such a busy schedule, she can’t dismiss flitting between places. Right now, she can’t be located in any city in particular owing to her indispensible personal commitments spread across three south Indian cities. “I stay in Chennai. My husband works in Bengaluru. Once in a month, we pay a visit to my hometown Thiruvananthapuram,” says Latha.

 

Latha has a sibling bonding with Tamil film industry. Her sister Kala Kalyani is an emerging actor who made an appearance in Idu Kathirvelan Kathal playing Nayanthara’s close buddy. She is playing the female lead in the upcoming flick Engeyum Naan Iruppen directed by Malayali director Benny Thomas. Earlier, the sisters had hosted a music show in Malayalam.
