Can a married actress be accepted in glamorous roles? Ask Jyothirmayi, who was first a serial artist, entered the world of films with the Malayalam movie Meesha Madhavan in 2000, and forayed into Tamil movies after getting married to Nishanth, a software engineer in 2004. "I don't mind glamorous roles after marriage," she says.
"Yes, I am married and happily married. I am still doing glamorous roles in many films, including Kannada film Bandhu Balaga. I would continue to look pretty and sexy on screen. I'm not committing any crime by doing glamorous roles," some sources quoted her as saying. She played the second female lead opposite Shivaraj Kumar in director Naganna's recently-released Bandhu Balaga.
Jyothirmayi also revealed that an actress is no different from other ladies who continue their careers after marriage. She has the same feelings and has to run her family like any other ordinary person. For an actress, there is nothing wrong in getting married when she is at the peak of her career. Today, we have a mature audience who can differentiate between the personal and professional life of an actress, she said.
Jyothirmayi also stressed that she shares a good rapport with her husband and he never interferes in her professional life. "There is a good understanding between us. He realizes the expectations of the industry from an actress like me. He never objects to me doing glamorous roles. It's entirely up to me to accept or reject a role," she said.
