KR Vijaya amma is a wonderfull actress who plays a role goddess very well. We have not seen goddess but very if we see amma in those roles than no need to see the god. Those roles are most suitable only for few and amma is one of few. In one of the Kannada movie she had played the role of Shiva-parvathi , Vishnu-lakshmi, brahma-saraswathi all 6 roles in one song. God should give her long life with good health n happiness.
