It is none other than Uthara Unnikrishnan, the Best Female Playback Singer. 10 year old Uthara was awarded for the super hit song Azhagu from the film Saivam.

However, very few know that Uthara is the daughter of famous playback singer Unnikrishnan. It is already well known that Unnikrishnan had won the prestigious national award for Best Playback Singer for the super hit song 'O Cheliya Na Priya Sakhiya' from Shankar-Prabhu Deva's 1993 blockbuster Premikudu.
