About not getting the National award she said to a daily, "I have missed it narrowly in some years. Moreover, some films with good songs are not entered for the National Awards every year. This is part of the game. If I am destined, I will get it one day."

She sang her first film's song when she was still in the sixth standard. Her first actual film is TOURIST BUNGALOW – Malayalam that released in 1974. Her first Tamil film song ('Kaadhal Oviyam Kandein') was not included in the film. However she took it as a good sign.

She made a comeback in 1989 through Priyadarshan's `Kadathanadan Ambadi.' Her songs in `Chitram' (1988) made her even more famous. In the Tamil films, she made a comeback through `Puthuvellai Mazhai' in A.R. Rahman's debut film `Roja' in 1992.
