Jyothika’s Return to Hindi Films: A Journey of Meaningful Roles

Jyothika, the talented actress known for her impactful performances in South Indian cinema, has made a remarkable comeback to Hindi films after 25 years with the supernatural thriller “Shaitaan.” This film marks her return, reunites her with R Madhavan after two decades, and introduces her to Hindi cinema alongside Ajay Devgn. Jyothika talks about her Return to Hindi Films after 24 years.

The Long Hiatus

Before “Shaitaan,” Jyothika’s last Hindi film was Priyadarshan’s directorial “Doli Saja Ke Rakhna” in 1998. Her decision to step back into the Hindi film industry after such a long hiatus has piqued the curiosity of fans and cinephiles alike.

Jyothika’s Return to Hindi Films:

In an interview, Jyothika candidly shared her perspective on returning to Bollywood. She emphasised that her criteria for choosing a film have evolved over the years. After portraying diverse characters in South Indian cinema, she seeks meaningful roles that offer great content. Jyothika stated, “I am looking for 2-3 good scenes for myself in a film, and I feel I could be part of it. ‘Shaitaan’ is very strong role-wise, content-wise, and as a film, I feel extremely proud of it, so that’s what made me choose it.”

Jyothika, the versatile actress known for her impactful performances, is all set to grace the screen in the biographical film “Srikanth.” The movie revolves around the extraordinary life of Srikanth Bolla, with Rajkummar Rao portraying the titular character.

A Shift in Perception

In an exclusive interview, Jyothika shared what deeply moved her about Srikanth’s story. She expressed her admiration for his achievements and how meeting him on set transformed her perception of visually challenged individuals. Jyothika found Srikanth to be not only highly talented but also remarkably normal. His positivity, resilience, and determination left a lasting impact on her.

The Bollant Industries Connection

During the film’s shoot, Jyothika visited Bollant Industries, a company founded by Srikanth Bolla. What amazed her was that this thriving enterprise was entirely run by visually challenged individuals. The machinery, the production—it all seemed effortless, breaking stereotypes and proving that abilities transcend physical limitations.

Boldly Telling Srikanth’s Story

“Srikanth” is a tale that deserves to be told boldly and proudly. Jyothika’s decision to be part of this project reflects her commitment to meaningful cinema. Her initial hesitation was overcome when she realized the power of Srikanth’s journey and the impact it could have on audiences.

Suriya’s Influence

Interestingly, Jyothika initially turned down the film offer. However, her husband, Tamil superstar Suriya, convinced her to reconsider. Director Tushar Hiranandani envisioned Jyothika’s Bollywood comeback through “Srikanth,” and her portrayal promises to be both inspiring and memorable. This film is all set to hit the screens on May 10th.
