Personal Quote:

On the first time she faced the camera: "I was never really nervous. . .I had great respect for my co-stars, but on the sets they were just characters with whom I had to interact...whether it was MGR, Sivaji or Gemini Ganesan.

She holds an honorary doctorate from the International Parliament for Safety and Pace, USA, and she was awarded locally by Tamil Nadu Government's Kalaimamani Award. See more »
