Singer Vaikom Vijayalakshmi gets engaged to mimicry artist Anoop
The highly talented playback singer Vaikom Vijayalakshmi got engaged last day in a private ceremony attended by close friends and family members. She exchanged rings with Anoop N, an interior designer from Pala. The engagement ceremony took place at Vijayalakshmi’s home, Usha Nivas, in Vaikom.
Anoop, who is also a mimicry artist, had approached Vijayalakshmi’s family with the proposal two years ago. Their marriage will be held at Vaikom Mahadeva Temple on October 22. Many popular names from the South Indian film industry are expected to attend the wedding.
Vijayalakshmi, the visually impaired singer, is loved by music lovers for her unique voice and impeccable rendering. She has sung several hit tracks, not just in Malayalam, but in all the four South Indian languages. Last year, she had called off her wedding with an NRI Malayali after some unacceptable demands by the groom’s side.
Not one to go down, Vijayalakshmi set a new world record by playing 67 songs with the Gayathriveena instrument in a five-hour-long marathon concert.
