Dhee (born 26 June 1998 as Dheekshitha Venkadeshan), is an Indian playback singer who has worked in Tamil language films. A resident of Australia, Dhee has sung songs in her step-father Santhosh Narayanan's albums and has garnered a nomination at the Filmfare Awards for Best Singer.



Dhee was born on 26 June 1998 to Indian classical singer, Meenakshi Iyer, who later remarried music composer Santhosh Narayanan. Dhee has an elder brother, Sudheekshanan, and attends Northmead Creative and Performing Arts High School in Sydney. Dhee began her playback singing career by performing songs in two of Santhosh Narayanan albums, Pizza II: Villa (2013) and Cuckoo (2014), during breaks from her education. Dhee made a breakthrough by singing "Naan Nee" from Pa. Ranjith's Madras (2014) alongside Shakthisree Gopalan. Her work on the song saw the pair garner nominations for Best Female Singer at the Filmfare Awards and the Vijay Awards.

Dheekshitha received critical acclaim for her work in Sudha Kongara Prasad's sports drama film, Irudhi Suttru (2016). Being used as the lead singer for Ritika Singh's North Madras-based boxer character in the film, Dhee recorded two solo songs titled "Ey Sandakaara" and "Usuru Narumbuley". Behindwoods.com stated that the first song was "another classic Santhosh number that gets your attention in no time", while noting the "pathos song by Dhee is a revelation sorts" about the latter.
