Jyothika - Tamil Film Actress
One of the worst actresses in Tamil movies, Jyothika is a well known film star.
A reasonably pretty and chubby girl, Jyothika is a distressing spectacle on screen for movie afficionados looking beyond physical attributes of the heroine.
Jyothika's entry into Tamil language films came after she failed to make headway in Hindi movies. Her first Hindi film Doli Saja Ke Rakhna opposite Akshaye Khanna did not set the cash registers ringing and she headed south.
Although it's hard to pick Jyothika's worst film since she is pretty bad in most, if pressed we'd say she's eggregiously bad in Thenali, Mayaavi, Pachaikili Muthucharam and Mozhi. In both Pachaikili Muthucharam and Mozhi, the young lady is just plain awful.
Try as we did, we cannot expunge from memory her distasteful performance as a deaf and dumb girl in Mozhi opposite the talented Prithwiraj Sukumaran.
Besides Surya, Jyothika has acted opposite several top Tamil heroes including Vijay, Kamal Haasan, Sarath Kumar, Rajnikanth, and Silambarasan.
Jyothika's terrible performances notwithstanding, she was quite popular with Tamil movie audiences which have a preference for plump and fair North Indian girls.
Jyothika married Surya on 11 September 2006 in a big ceremony in Chennai.
Following her marriage, the young lady has bid adieu to Tamil movies, a long overdue move by the reckoning of some Tamil film lovers.
Born on 18 October 1978, Jyothika is the daughter of film producer Chander Sadanah.
Jyothika's sister Nagma is a well known Bhojpuri film actress.
