In the case of Gowthami, filmmakers were convinced that she had stopped acting. However, the yesteryear actress feels that she never did overtly delcare that she did not want to act again. The actress, close to her friend Kamal Haasan, has recently confessed that she nurtures an ambition to do character roles in films, again. The actress was seen in a 1999 Kannada film Cheluva after a long time.
Like some of her contemporaries like Radhika, she too has decided to bag opportunities that came her way on the small screen. Resultantly, she is doing a role in Tamil sop Abirami, produced by Abirami Ramanathan. About the role, Gowthami herself said that she was playing a woman with high self-esteem.
Saying that she did not ever bid adieu to films, Gowthami commented that the producers themselves thought that she had stopped acting.
"I am ever-ready to act again if good opportunities come my way," she was reported as saying.
