Full Biography of Actress Jyothika

Jyothika (Jyothika Sadanah, born on 18 October 1978) is an Indian actress who predominantly appeared in Tamil films. She also acted in a few Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu and Hindi films. She gained critical acclaim for her performances in Kushi, Perazhagan, Chandramukhi and Mozhi, winning three Filmfare and three Tamil Nadu State Film Awards. She was one of the most successful actresses in the Tamil film industry of her time. She is also a recipient of the Kalaimamani award.  Her performance in Mozhi & Chandramukhi took her very close to winning the National Film Award for Best Actress.

She made her acting debut in the Hindi film Doli Saja Ke Rakhna directed by Priyadarshan. She later ventured into the Tamil film industry. Her first role was a cameo appearance in Vaali (1999). Later that year, she starred in Poovellam Kettuppar, in which she played the love interest of the protagonist, portrayed by her future husband Suriya. A string of successful films followed between 2000 and 2002 , among them Kushi, Dum Dum Dum and Snegithiye. She also acted with Kamal Haasan during this period, in the comedy film Thenali. She was awarded the Filmfare Best Tamil Actress Award for her role in Kushi.

In 2003, she starred in Dhool with Vikram, Kaakha Kaakha with Suriya and Thirumalai with Vijay, all of which did good business, Kaakha Kaakha in particular being one of the biggest hits of her career. In 2004, she acted in a double role in the critically acclaimed Perazhagan opposite Suriya. In 2005, she acted in Manmadhan opposite Silambarasan.

Her most successful film till date is the Rajinikanth starrer Chandramukhi 2005 in which she essayed the title role. She also received the Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Actress for Perazhagan in 2004 and Chandramukhi in 2005.

Her last films were Gautham Menon's Pachaikili Muthucharam and the critically acclaimed Mozhi, both in 2007. Her performance in Mozhi took her very close to winning the National Film Award for Best Actress. However, she lost the award by a narrow margin at the end. Her roles in these two films, as a negative character in the former (which she played for the first time) and as a deaf and mute in the latter earned her widespread appreciation.

Jyothika entered the Telugu film industry with Tagore, starring Chiranjeevi. Her next Telugu film was Mass (2004) written and directed by Raghava Lawrence. The film was dubbed into Tamil as Veeran and Hindi as Meri Jung — One Man Army. Most of her Tamil films were dubbed into Telugu.

Jyothika made a come back through Television ads. She appeared with Suriya for endorsing brands like Aircel and Nescafé. In 2008, she appeared in a short film Herova? Zerova?. The film was written and produced by her father–in–law Sivakumar and also starred Vijay, R. Madhavan and Suriya. Jyothika was also the brand ambassador for RmKV silk sarees and a wardrobe hub in Chennai. She appeared in Paragon Slippers ad.
