Shreya Ghoshal has won the Kerala State Film Award for the best female playback singer for her song, 'Chandhu Thottille" in Banaras, adding her to long list of awards.
Shreya states that she never thought she would get an award for a Malayalam song as the language isn"t easy. She thanked M Jayachandran, the composer of the song, for giving her a lovely song like that and helping her to do justice to it.
Shreya has earlier sung 'Vida Parayukayano' for the Mammootty starrer Big B, 'Vennilave' in Sagar Alias Jacky and 'Anuraaga Vilochananayi' in Neelathamara.
Shreya has won numerous awards in the past, like four National awards and three State awards. She has won 31 awards in total. In eight years of her career, she has sung for over 140 films in Hindi, Tamil, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam and Bengali.
