In July, when mallus had just started planning their vaikittathe paripadees around Idea Star Singer, I posed a question on my blog, “Do you have any dope on Meera Nandakumar?”

Soon I realised there were a lot of guys on the Net who were asking the same question, and many started landing on my blog – I guess mine was the only site then that mentioned Meera Nandakumar and Idea Star Singer together.


By the time Meera started accounting for 20% of the traffic to my site, I decided I had to do something. But Google Search yielded zilch. Google Alerts gave me a lot of updates about some Meera Nandakumar in Cisco. Mallu mags were mum; Mallu mums, mad…


Then Idea Star Singer celebrated their 100th episode and YouTube adopted Meera wholesale…but still no d-o-p-e. Then last week Malayala Manorama, Mangalam and Indian Express ran stories on the kid.


Highlights…Meera is a Class XII student of Bhavan’s Vidya Mandir, Elamakkara. 


Before ISS – where she started as a contestant – she appeared in Jeevan TV’s Star Chat and Family Fun, and Amrita TV Vanitha Ratnam. She has also acted in Veedu, a telefilm. 


Meera’s big screen debut will be in Lal Jose’s Mulla Poovu, with Dileep. Heppy?
