Couple of weeks back PSuseela gave an interview to oli 96.8(Spore radios tamil cahnnel),The interviewer was Meenakshi Sabapathi,one of the best in Oli 96.8.
Interview aarambathilirindhe Psuseela sonna varthaigal'eankku tamizh seriya theriyadhu,enakku tamizh pesa varaadhu'. Meenakshi did her best to divert the interview but kili pillai madhiri PS
was reiterating the same words. This has hurt many of her ardent fans.Many rasigargal had called oli
in the past 2 weeks to report their disappointment
'tamizh naatiliye vazhndhu,tamizhile 40 varushama paadi tamizh varalengaranga appidinna edhukku tamizhile paadanum'
'avangalukkaga neenga aen Meenakshi samaalikkireenga'
'tamizh varavittal kooda adhai thiruppi thiruppi sollanuma'
idhu pole niraiya vimarsanangal.
It could be true that PS cannot speak in tamizh,if so then why did she accept for the interview?Was she thinking that the interview is going to be in telugu or english??
'tamizhukku amudhendra per'endu paadiya paadagikku tamizhe theriyaadhendru Bharathidaasanukku therindhaal...:paavam migavum varutha pattirpaar.

What are you people talking about. When PS was in Canada she gave an interview on the 24 hour radio and she conversed very well in tamil. She even recalled a lot of the songs that the fans wished for her to sing a bit of. This thing about her not able to speak in tamil doesn't make sense at all. Even so, let it rest. After all, it is her songs that we enjoy, not her talking ability.

I forgot to tell you something very important,

Ithai kettu arangathil iruntha rasigarlin kaithattal Oyave Illai.

Janaki: Avanga(PS) padina padal makkal manathil kuralodu sernthu padhinthirukkum, athanal nan padinal nanraga irukkathu(Enna uyarntha abiprayam about PS parungal)

My heart-felt thanks to Messrs. Aruvi, g and Mr.Algappan for their nice write-ups. I always used to feel that in terms of pronunciation of Tamil - P Susheela-kku nigar P Susheela dhaan. Moreover when she speaks Tamish, one can feel the slight Telugu accent but she could definitely speak flawless Tamizh and when she sings no one can doubt her Tamil knowledge - so perfect.
As Mr. Aruvi said it is her songs that matter (being a singer). I remember Vairamuthu telling in an interview once "Susheela avargalin thaai mozhi telungaha iruppinum, avargal paadum bodhu oru Thamizh perasiriyarai vida ucharippu avvalavu sariyaaha irukkum"
