Gopika, known for her dedication and uncomplicated personality, had been the first choice among filmmakers for the last couple of years, whenever there was a character of a nice, homely and bubbly girl. During her career that lasted six years, she was immensely successful with a string of hits in all four South Indian languages.
Now Gopika has married Dr. Ajilesh, who practices medicine in Ireland. She is going to Ireland with her husband on August 2nd and will settle down there. So, it seems that Gopika will not act again.
This pretty actress had never been ambitious to become a big star, and was always happy with what she was. But still, she has one regret!
She was the first choice by producer S. Shankar to work in Kadhal (2004) directed by Balaji Sakthivel. But she had problems allotting dates to Kadhal because she had already committed them to others. She had no choice but to refuse. Later she was replaced by Sandya who won the Filmfare award for the best South actress for the film.
"I knew instantly when I read the script that it was going to be a sensational hit. The script was wonderful. Except that, I have no other regrets, in my film career," Gopika said.
Gopika's yet to be released movies include Jayaram's Veruthe Oru Bharya, AMMA's Twenty: 20 and a dubbed movie Rajamudra. Gopika says her decision to make a come back to the film industry will depend on her husband. But for the time being, she will fly off to Ireland and make a home there. All the best Gopika!
