Gopika leaves the industry at a time when her career is at its peak. She was perfect for homely and bubbly girls' roles. She started her career with Pranayamanithooval which did not do too well in the box office. But her second film, For The People, was a huge hit and Gopika was noticed. Later, she moved on to other South Indian films and found a place of her own. Cheran introduced her to Tamil through Autograph. Her latest Malayalam hit, Annan Thampi, which released on Vishu, is till running in theatres, breaking all collection records.
Her last release in Tamil was Vellithirai; she has completed two films in Malayalam, Veruthe Oru Bharya with Jayaram and Twenty:20.
