Chinmayi Returns To Tamil Cinema And Thanks Lokesh Kanagaraj!

Welcome Back!

Famous singer, voice artist and television host Chinmayi Sripaada returned to Tamil cinema after 5 years. Thalapathy Vijay’s Leo trailer took the internet by storm. Now, singer and voice artist Chinmayi Sripaada has taken to her X (Twitter)  account to express her gratitude to the Leo team. Chinmayi has dubbed for the part of Trisha in the film, which marks her return to Tamil cinema after a hiatus of close to 5 years.

After the release of the trailer, Chinmayi took to her X (Twitter) account to thank director Lokesh Kanagaraj and Producer Lalit Kumar. She wrote, ” I am a million times grateful to Mr Lokesh Kanagaraj and Mr Lalit for having taken this stand. THAT. IS. MY. VOICE. IN. LEO. FOR. TRISHA. And guess what? I have dubbed in Tamil, Telugu AND Kannada. #Badass”. 

For which, Trisha replied, ” And I am so grateful to you Thank you Chin.” and she replied,

” OHMYGAWWDDD Much love @trishtrashers Much much love.”

In 2018, Chinmayi spearheaded the ‘Me Too’ movement in the south. She opened her profile to many women, who wanted to post stories annonymously about their sexual predators. The Dubbing Union had previously threatened to expel her for accusing the Union’s leadership of misconduct and for naming Radha Ravi during the #MeToo movement. In April 2019, the Court granted her a temporary stay of the order, allowing her to resume work. Opportunities in Tamil cinema were scarce for her despite the fact that she dubbed for Kalyani Priyadarshan  in the movie Hero. Also, AR Rahman used her as a playback singer last year in the Telugu version of Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu.
