The talented actress, who makes a comeback to films after eight years, talks about her desicion to act again at the music launch event
Having married Suriya in 2006, then popular actress Jyothika decided to bid adieu to her thriving acting career to focus on her family life. Now, after 8 years, Jyothika is all set to make a comeback with 36 Vayadhinile, produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment, a film which is the remake of Malayalm superhit How Old Are You?
Recently, at the audio launch event of the film, Jyothika opened up about her decision to pursue acting after so many years. Jyothika expressed her gratitude towards her friends who constantly supported her to get back to films. Jyothika said," I was confused when I got the offer to act again. When I consulted with my best friends Sarah, Anu and Lakshmi, they said I should do it because I deserve a break. They were my driving force behind my decision to act again. I should also thank my help Devi, with whom I entrusted my children and stepped out to act without having to worry. I couldn’t have done it without their support”.
That was not all, being an ideal daughter-in-law, the actress thanked her in laws for being supportive of her decision to act again. Jo said," “My in-laws never questioned my decision to act again. They could’ve asked me, but they didn’t. My father-in-law would drop the kids at school and my mum-in-law would pack their lunches and look after them at home. I could concentrate on sets because they were looking after my children”.
Talking about her husband Suriya, she said , "He was the first person I met when I came to Chennai many years ago. Since then he’s been my pillar of strength. I’m so happy to have married him."
"This is easily my career’s best film. We complain that Tamil cinema rarely produces women-centric films. I think all that is going to change with my film. It’s amazing on Roshan’s part to debut in an industry with a woman-centric film,” concluded Jyothika.
The music launch function was attended by Suriya's brother Karthi and his Masss director Venkat Prabhu. The children of Jo-Suriya were also present at the event.
