Full Biography of Singer Roshini
Roshini is an Indian playback singer, who originally hails from Tamil Nadu. She was brought up in Trichy and Chennai and she is famous for her playback singing in Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. Roshini is now a very popular singer in the Tamil film industry. Her first song "Kaananguruvi" was for the movie Aaha enna porutham and the music director is Vidyasagar. Her first hit song "Pottu thaakku" is for the movie Kuthu. Then she sang many hit songs in the Tamil movies like Pattiyal, Thaamirabharani and Yaaradi Nee Mohini, etc.
Roshini was born in Trichy, India to a proper Tamil family. Her parents are Dr. Joseph Kaliyaperumal and Mrs. Lucy Joseph. She did her schooling at Trichy up to the 9th Std. Then afterwards, her family moved to Chennai. She did the remaining of her schooling at Chennai. She is a B.E Graduate in a Computer Science Background.
For any singer aspiring to gain a foothold in the film industry, knocking the doors of music companies with demo CDs, singing chorus numbers and endless waits to meet music directors are the usual way of packaging and marketing oneself.
But none of these were on the schedule sheet of J.K.V. Roshini when she hoped for a career in music. And yet, the young singer managed to earn a label as one of the frequently recorded singers in the industry.
Like any Carnatic music learning kid, Roshini, in her class III, flaunted her open and hi-ranged voice through the krithi ‘Manasa Sancharare’ during the annual day. And that’s when Lady Luck smiled on her. Music director Vidyasagar, the chief guest of the day, booked her for a song in the movie ‘Aaha Enna Porutham.’
Music directors found her voice suitable for child artistes which helped her . After a song in Packiaraj-starrer ‘Vaetiya Madichu Kattu,’ she wanted to put her formal training in Carnatic music to some use and began accepting a great deal of offers to sing for devotional albums. When the film offers became too tempting, the Tiruchi-girl decided to shift her base to Chennai.
The arc of Roshini’s career had its major twist when music director Srikanth Deva singled out the distinctive voice of the third-year-engineering student performing at a talent show. The song ‘Potu Thaaku’ from ’Kutthu’ was what he had to offer which, she felt, played a key role in helping her emerge as a good singer of fast numbers.
She soon found herself competing with celebrity singers. Just as the popularity of ‘Potu Thaaku’ began to fade, she gave yet another hit of the year through ‘Karuppana Kaiyale’ from ‘Tamirabarani.’ And even if none of her dreams work out, she still will have a career to turn to and perhaps, earn more. Even as she religiously accepts the offers knocking her door, Roshini is all set to face the interviews of software multinationals slated at her college.
Roshini along with her sister Anita performed the feat of 'singing non-stop for 37 hours', which fetched them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
