Biography / trivia
# The malayalam actress Meera Jasmine was in a family which had no connection with the film industry. Nobody encouraged her to act her in movies, infact everyone opposed it initialy. Her entry into films was quite unexpected. She was introduced by Lohithadas who is famous Malayalam director . She accepted a film offer against her father’s wishes.
# She offered prayers and paid bow to Lord at Raja Rajeshwara temple at Taliparamba in Kerala where the entry of non-Hindus is prohibited. This lead to a controversy as sparking off a protest by Hindu devotees. Later, she had paid Rs. 10,000 as penalty to the temple authorities.
# It is reported that she will be marrying U. Rajesh, a mandolin artist. Meera and Rajesh have formally confirmed the love they have for each other. However, according to Meera Jasmine, she would marry Rajesh only after two years, so that her on-going film commitments are over.
# “Generally, I do not do any preparation or rehearsal. I think about the character a lot so that I become the character in my mind. Then, I start thinking like her. Even my body language changes.”
# “I felt very happy when I won the state award. Honestly, I did not even think of winning a National Award. I felt I would be too ambitious if I started dreaming about it. God saw to it that I got that too.”
# “There is no background of art in my family. Nobody encouraged me to dance or act in plays when I was in school. I did not know I had this talent. Like all girls, I wanted to learn dancing when I was young but since that was not done in my family, I did not. I belong to a very orthodox family and dancing is total anathema there. My father was dead against me acting but my mother, sister and brother were with me. In fact, I returned the advance thrice before finally saying yes! Today, my father is a proud and happy man! ”
# “I have always been linked with my heroes and they call me the ‘Queen of Gossips” . I have taken them in my stride and now nothing dithers my spirit. I work hard and that’s it. People who write such gossips will keep quiet after sometime. And I have never walked out of any film as some reports indicate.”
