Chennai: The South Indian movie music world shared the grief of noted playback singer KS Chithra, who lost her eight-year-old daughter in a swimming pool accident in Dubai on Thursday.

"The family came back from Dubai this (Friday) morning and the funeral was held in the evening," Chithra's manager Krishna Kutty Menon told IANS.

A person in Chithra's household told IANS that the entire household was in tears.

Chithra had gone to Dubai alongwith her family to perform in A.R. Rahman's music show and was staying in a villa there when the accident happened.

Nadana, a differently-abled child, fell into the pool while playing.

She was born to Chithra and Vijayashankar in 2002, 15 years after their marriage.

A devotee of Hindu god Krishna, Chithra had named her daughter after she got an award from the Kerala government for her song in the Malayalam movie "Nandanam".

"It is very sad to hear. Chithra is such a humble person. Despite winning several awards and being a celebrity she does not have any airs," a media professional told IANS.

Playback singers SP Balasubramaniam, P Susheela, Janaki, Mano and many others visited Chithra's home to pay their condolences.
