Making a career out of whistling, which is probably not even considered a profession, is what makes Swetha Suresh one of a kind. Swetha became the first Indian woman to win two first prizes in the World Whistling Convention 2016 held at Kawasaki, Japan which saw participation from a total of 6 countries including, Japan, India, Australia, Korea, the United States, and Venezuela. Popularly known as the ‘Whistling Queen’ in the Indian Whistling Association, she now stands as the first female whistler in the country and is also in the number one position in Asia.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Union Cabinet Minister of Food Processing congratulated Swetha on Twitter and encouraged her dreams of starting a whistling school to popularise the art. She wrote, “Shwetha dreams of starting a whistling school to popularise the art & bust myths. Kudos to Shweta for keeping alive this dying art”.

She has lent her skill for quite a number of Kollywood film songs. A few notable ones are ‘Verasa Pogayile’ from Jilla, ‘Yennada Yennada’ from Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and ‘Paravaiya Parakkurom’ from Kayal. The theme music of Pokkiri Raja was also her whistling, as she has for Vikram Prabhu’s upcoming movie Wagah.
