# “Definitely I won’t act after marriage. I ,who have given up acting now, won’t even dream of returning back to acting. Marriage is an important stage in a woman’s life. When I will get married to Ajithkumar as per my heart’s liking, I would turn to be the female family head. There’s no change in this decision.”

# “I can refer to three qualities: First, as far as film shooting work is concerned, he’s a hard-worker. He forgets even food and sleep while doing work. Secondly, he first thinks of others. Then only he thinks about himself. Suppose if anyone suffers, he would be the first person to lend his help. Thirdly, the self-confidence and his acting talent that enabled him to come up in life without seeking others’ support! After facing so many challenges and undergoing so many sufferings, he has become a hero of great feats.”
