In Shishira, Prema had lost weight. It was also said that the actress was suffering from diabetes. Reacting to this, Prema said, "It is all nonsense. I am hale and healthy. I am having a good family life with my husband. I am doing Yoga to keep a good condition of health." Prema married Jeevan Appachu, a software engineer by profession, who is based out of Coorg.
Talking about her comeback to Kannada film industry, Prema said, "I am looking for a role that has creativity and strength like what Smitha Patil and Sridevi have done in their professional career. After reaching one point of seniority in life, we have to be very careful in picking the roles. There is no point in doing regular kind of roles." Click here to view more photos of Prema
Prema also added that she is in touch with the actresses like Shruthi, Bhavana, Thara Anuradha and Sudharani. "I attend many functions in my home town, Coorg. I am not interested in Television acting or taking part as a judge or participating in reality shows," adds Prema.
