Kollywood Actress Jyothika‘s recently released film Rakshasi sent shudders down Kollywood’s spine, particularly in one scene where she breaks a glass bottle and compromises a man at a tea shop.
In this film, Jyothika is a teacher who will go extraordinary lengths to spare her school from the covetousness of neighborhood goons and legislators. In her rebirth as an on-screen character in the wake of settling down, Jyothika has essentially centered in female-driven movies like this, a flat out complexity to her roles before marriage.
In 2006, she stopped acting after her marriage to Suriya and started focusing on her family life. Her second innings happened through the film Magalir Mattum and she has been unstoppable ever since. Scripts are just coming her way with younger directors willing to experiment with female-led stories.
Recently an Interview with Jyothika, Jo conceded she may have committed a few mistakes during her more youthful days as an actress. “I was a 17-year-old child. Not matured enough to think about the kind of roles I was getting. Now, I get inspired by real-life women. Being a mother and a wife, changed me,” she explained.
Times are evolving. She accepts the idea entertainers are just present to help the film ought to be changed. Like Vidya Balan in Bollywood, Jyothika has decided to speak to genuine ladies actresses.
