At last, there is something to cheer for the die-hard fans of Jyothika, who fell in love with and married actor Suriya in 2006. The 35-year old actress who got married when she was at the peak of her career, is finally making her much-awaited comeback into the world of films.
Jyothika has been playing the perfect housewife to Suriya, taking care of him as well as their kids: 6-year old daughter Dia and 3-year old son Dev. In her comeback film, Jo (as she is referred to by her fans) would be playing the heroine and not any sundry role in her comeback film which would be directed by Pandiraj, the national award-winning director.
It may be recalled that soon after Jo’s marriage with Suriya, her father-in-law and actor Sivakumar had said that she won’t be starring in films anymore. Jo’s Mozhi, in which she had essayed to perfection the role of a speech-impaired girl and which released after her marriage, won her many accolades. Her fans and critics were shocked to learn that such a talented actress would no more be seen on big-screen anymore.
Jo plays the central role in the film which doesn’t have any hero (which could have been the reason for her family’s nod for her comeback). Pandiraj is to make another film on the lines of his award-winning Pasanga which would have children in lead roles. Suriya is said to be very happy to see his wife’s comeback on silver screen!
