Bollywood Garam: South Indian singer K. S Chitra must have never thought that her recent trip to Dubai may leave a permanent scar in her memories. The singer’s daughter Nandana died after accidentally falling in to a swimming pool in Dubai, where she was residing at the Emirates Hills Villa.
Her 8-year-old had reportedly sneaked out of the room, where Chitra was staying with her. Chitra had given Nandana a bath, after which she left her on the bed and went to take a shower. This was when Nandana came out of the room and slipped in to the swimming pool, as the pool was very near to the room.
After the singer came out of the bathroom, she found that her daughter wasn’t in the room, and Nanadana was found in the swimming pool and was immediately rushed to the hospital, only to be pronounced dead.
Nandana is the only child of the singer, and was born to Chitra after 15 years of marriage. According to close friends and family, Chitra was very fond of her child – who is known to have been autistic – and used to take special care of her daughter. The singer had named her daughter after she had sung a devotional song in a movie ‘Nandanam’.
Nandana’s body was brought back to Chennai on Thursday night at 9:30 pm.
Our condolences are with with K.S Chitra and her family at this time of grief.
