Jyotika celebrated another very happy birthday in the bosom of her loving family in Chennai. Born on October 18, 1978 as Sadhana to film producer Chander Sadanah and Seema Sadanah in Mumbai, she was preceded to Kollywood by sister Nagma, who was also one of the leading heroines of her day.
Doli Saja Ke Rakhna opposite Akshay Khanna was her first movie.
Though that didn’t pan out, she was noticed by Kollywood and her first movie as a full-fledged heroine was Poovellam Kettuppar opposite Suriya, who later wooed and married her in September 2006.
One of the few fairy-tale marriages between two equally famous actors, the Suriya-Jyotika marriage is the stuff of dreams. Blessed with a daughter, Diya, who celebrated her first birthday a while ago, this couple is still as much in love as the day they first met!
Unlike many other heroines who quit films only after their first flush of success is over, Jyotika stepped into matrimony when she was at the very peak of her career, thus leaving her fans wanting more.
Mozhi, Vettaiyadu Villaiyadu and Pachaikili Muthucharam, which were among her last movies, saw her at the height of her acting powers.
