Dubbing artist Anandavally C R, who lent her voice to many actresses in the Malayalam film industry, passed away at a private hospital on Friday following prolonged illness. She was 64. Anandavally began her film career by doing small roles in Malayalam films such as 'Kadu'.
From lending her voice to actress Rajasri in the film 'Devi Kanyakumari' to dubbing for Poornima Jayaram for the film 'Manjil Virinja Pookkal', Anandavally made a remarkable presence in the film industry as a dubbing artist. This was a turning point in her career where she was flooded with opportunities.

She had also worked as an announcer in All India Radio. Hailing from Kollam, she has a daughter, Anu Lakshmi. Her son Diphan, director of the film 'Puthiya Mugham', died two years ago. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan expressed grief over her death and said that as a dubbing artist she had made a place for herself in the Malayalam film industry by modulating her voice according to the characters.
