Kaviyoor Ponnamma has played mother in about 600 films in a career spanning more than four decades. While she was doing the first of those roles in `Kudumbini' in 1964, she had no intentions of doing a similar role in another film, though. She, in fact, did not want to act at all. "I wanted to be a classical singer like M.S. Subbulakshmi. She was an inspiration when I was a little girl. My father had taken me along with him for a concert of hers in Kottayam. And I was spellbound. Her beauty was mesmerising. That day I decided I wanted to be a classical singer." But destiny had other plans for her.
