Local actress-host Udaya Soundari has made local Tamil TV history - she is the first person to win three awards in one year at Pradhana Vizha, an annual ceremony which honours the best in local Indian television.

The bubbly 26-year-old won the titles for Best Actress, Best Host (Info-Ed) and Most Popular Female Personality, but missed out on her fourth nomination for Best Host (Variety).

"It was unexpected, definitely. It's like nobody wins more than one award at Pradhana, up till 2012, when actor Vadi PVSS won two awards. I was like, 'What? Three awards?' I'm still in shock," she says.

Pradhana Vizha, now in its 14th year, is Vasantham Central's equivalent of Channel 8's Star Awards and was held last Thursday at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore.
