Krishna Chandran has acted in many Malayalam films  and  he is an excellent playback singer who has sung more than 170 film songs in Malayalam.He sang several songs in Tamil movies also.He has earned name and prestige as a Carnatic Music exponent too.
Krishna Chandran was born in 1960 at Nilambur and had his education at Thrissur and Palghat.He has degree in Music and passed out in flying colors.
His desire was to become a well known singer and entry to films as an actor  was unexpected.
During 60's and 70' there was a program on All India Radio on Sundays in the name 'Bala Lokam' which was  conducted by film actor 'Veeran'(Veera Raghavan Nair) and later by Writer/Novelist 'P.Padmarajan' who were  employed at All India Radio.The person who controlled the program was known as 'Radio Ammavan'(Radio Uncle) and since there was no TV those days, children of the age group 5 - 17 were very fond of this program which included short stories,skits, songs etc.There were Children's Radio Clubs in different parts of Kerala and they used to get chance to conduct these programs by turn.On such an occasion when Krishna Chandran who was then a ninth standard student went there for the 'Bala Lokam' program  and  P.Padmarajan who was 'Radio Ammavan' at that period was impressed by Krishna Chandran's smartness and he took his address.
After three years P.Padmarajan called him and  offered him  the protagonist role as the young teen age boy lover who seduced a beautiful  elderly neighbour girl of the Supriya Productions film 'Rathi Nirvedam' for which Padmarajan wrote Story,Screenplay and Direction was by Bharathan.
The film 'Rathinirvedam'  was a big blockbuster success.The enchanting scenic location and excellent photography added beauty to this film.Jayabharathy as 'Rathi Chechi' and Krishna Chandran as 'Pappu' earned the love and appreciation from audience and critics.
Krishna Chandran after that film again concentrated in his studies and returned back to films later on.
He got offers as playback singer as well as  an actor and has acted in many films in supporting roles.He sang more than 170 songs in Malayalam films.He did not approach music directors for songs and film directors for roles which minimized the offers received by him.
Krishana Chandran is an excellent and established Dubbing Artist and has obtained Kerala State Award as Best Dubbing Artist twice, one for film 'Kabooliwala'(Voice to Vineeth), and the  other for film 'Aniyathipravu(Voice to Kunchacko Boban).He gave voice for most of Rahman's  movies and for Vineeth films.
Krishna Chandran fell in love with Vanitha at the sets of I.V.Sasi's blockbuster film 'Ee Nadu'(1982) in which both of them acted and he married her in 1986.
Vanitha hails from Thiruchirapally in Tamil Nadu and has acted in many Malayalam films and Tamil Films.
The couple have a daughter 'Amritha Varshini'.
Krishna Chandran is a resident of Thiruvananthapuram  at present and working at Amritha TV from 2005.
