Jyothika has quashed all rumors and has confirmed her role in the short film being filmed on the theme based on "Education for the girl child." Though she has not started her confirmation to the press, people recently witnessed the actress walking along with a host of school children on the Marina beach, and this was being shot on camera.
After her marriage with actor Suriya and their baby Diya, this is Jyothika's first public appearance. The actress has not participated so far in any public events too. Her last film, before her marriage was 'Mozhi' that starred Prithviraj and Jyothika in the lead roles, and like any other films of Jyothika, this too was a super hit.
The idea of directing this short film was born when Suriya's Agaram Foundation and Tamil Nadu's Educational Department came together to make a film creating an awareness on the education to the girl child.
Though the world is, at one end, racing up with advancements one after the other, there are still some parts in the state were the girl children are treated differently from their boy counterparts.
There are many instances where the girl is pulled out of school rolls after she attains age.
This team has come forward to educate the public regarding the importance to educate the girl children. The short-film is being directed by V. Priya of 'Kanda Naal Mudhal' fame. Actor Suriya is one of the producers the film as well as will appear in the film along with wife Jyothika. The other stars who lent their support for this noble cause are Vijay and Madhavan.
