Tamil Malayalam and Hindi. After achieving some success in the films Mana Desam (1949) and Stree Sahasam (1951) she decided to take up singing as a profession.

Jikki thrilled listeners with the rare grain of her voice and its wholesome resonance. Her fluency in several languages like Tamil Telugu Sinhalese etc. enabled her to win the hearts of a whole lot of listeners. The Telugu song �Eruvaka saagalo rannao chinnanna� from the film Rojulu Marai brought Jikki instant fame and from that time on her popularity and artistic achievements soared. One of her songs �Pandhitlo pellavuthunnaadhi� and the same song in the Tamil version �Avan - kalyana oorvalam varum� became super hits and remain evergreen favourites. The songs in the film Devadas (1953) sung by Jikki became immensely popular with music lovers and still linger in the memory. She toured England Germany France and Switzerland. Songs like �Eruvaaka saagaaro� (Rojulu Maaraayi)�O Devadasa� (Devadaas) �Chiguraakulalo chilakammaa� (Donga Raamudu) �Chettulekkagalavaa� (Chenchulakshmi) �Virisindi vinta haayi� (Baalanaagamma) �Haayi haayigaa aamani saage� (Suvarna Sundari) have secured a permanent place for her in Telugu cinema. She had the ability to suit her voice to a particular actor and her playback numbers with actress Anjali Devi are the most memorable. After a long gap she resumed playback singing in the film Aditya 369 with the song �Janavule nerajanavule�.

After a prolonged illness Jikki passed away on 16 August 2004.
