Ladies Junction For 'Ladies Junction' she goes into the villages, to meet people and talk to them. She describes it as a great feeling to do a programme which explores the talent of people.
Her views Manirathnam: (Husband & Director)
“He is such a perfectionist that he waited till he was 31 to get married. He is a very easy to live with because he is not a demanding husband. Many young people today think that marriage is about holding hands and going for movies, but it is much more.”

Kamalahaasan : (Uncle, Actor)
"Kamal was very keen that I should study to be a cinematographer or director but at 17, I was too unsure and confused. I didn’t think I was ready for direction."

"We aren't emancipated yet. Indian women are economically and socially quite independent. But when it comes to emotional support, we're still dependent on our parents, husband, brothers..."
Future projects Has planned to do short films besides a full-length feature film in the next couple of years.
