We have featured videos and images of Indian celebrities with their expensive cars. There are celebrities who live a humble life and do not use luxury cars. The majority of the population in India still uses two-wheelers to commute from one place to another and buying a car is still a dream for many. We have now come across a new video of a person who recently turned into a celebrity. Her name is Nanjiyamma, a tribal woman from Kerala, who recently became popular as a playback singer. She bought a brand new Kia Sonet SUV.
The video has been shared by One India Malayalam on their YouTube channel. The singer, Nanjiyamma, is from a tribal community in Palakkad district’s Attappadi region. The 65-year-old Nanjiyamma garnered public attention after singing a song in a Malayalam movie in 2020. The film’s title song, “Kalakkatha,” was written by Nanjiyamma in the Irula language. For the very same song, Nanjiyamma also won the National Award for the best playback singer. She is actually a folksinger of Azad Kala Samithi.
After her song went viral on the internet, Nanjiyamma started getting offers for other movies as well. She has been doing well for herself lately and has been performing several stage shows within the country and abroad. Nanjiyamma recently bought the Kia Sonet SUV. It is a brand new SUV, and the singer bought the car in an Aurora Black shade. The exact details, such as the variant and the transmission, are not available in the video.
In the video that has been circulating online, we can see Nanjiyamma taking delivery of her brand new car. We are not sure whether Nanjiyamma is going to drive the car herself or if she is going to be driven around by a driver or someone else.
