Tamil actress Jyotika, who returned to the silver screen nearly after a gap of eight years with “36 Vayadhinile”, on Tuesday said the success of the movie was due to support of the people who wanted to “empower and celebrate womanhood”.
“Standing proud today because of you all, all I can say is that each one of you who have loved ‘36 Vayadhinile’ and supported it are the reason to start the change, which is to empower and celebrate womanhood. Hoping to see many more Vasanthis strive to achieve their goals!,” Jyotika said in a statement.
Jyotika plays the role of Vasanthi while Rahman essays a supporting role in the movie, directed by Rosshan Andrrews, penned by Bobby Sanjay and produced by Jyotika’s husband Suriya under his home production studio 2D Entertainment.
Music is composed by Santhosh Narayanan.The movie depicts the daily struggle of a house wife and her desire to chase her own dreams.“I did this film with a fire inside me believing that women should be respected for being home makers as they juggle between many roles in day-to-day life thereby loosing the drive to chase their own dreams.”
She said being home maker also gives heroines a better standing in male-dominated film industry, as woman’s identity lies in her self respect, confidence and achievements, and not just in marital status.
