The CPI(M) is likely to field popular Malayalam actress KPAC Lalitha as a Left-supported independent candidate in the May 16 assembly polls in Kerala, sources said on Sunday.

A source said the day-long CPI(M) meeting that was busy finalising the list of candidates zeroed down on Lalitha who will be fielded from a constituency in Thrissur.

The 69-year-old Lalitha began her career through the hugely popular Kerala People's Arts Club (KPAC)—the pioneer in performing arts and the oldest theatre group in Kerala—and that is how her name got the prefix.

She entered the film industry in 1969 and since then has been a regular. She has acted in more than 600 films and continues to be very active.

Her husband was the acclaimed award-winning director Bharathan, who passed away in 1998. Their son Siddarth is a budding director.

Lalitha is likely to take on former Congress chief minister K. Karunakaran's daughter Padmaja Venugopal, who is on the list of probables from a constituency in Thrissur.
