Fans of Dhanush and the film Mayakkam Enna are celebrating the ninth year anniversary of their favourite movie. Directed by Selvaraghavan, the film talks about how Yamini stood strong with her husband Karthik although he became an alcoholic due to the failure in his professional life.
Now, the film's heroine Richa has opened up about how she could relate with Mayakkam Enna in real life. The actress says that in real life she is Karthik from Mayakkam Enna and her husband Joe Langella is Yamini.
"Wow....I can't believe it's already been #9YearsOfMayakkamEnna . I guess I took a page out of that story in "real" life, by leaving "reel" life to pursue other passions and change my career track altogether! No regrets. In fact, no regrets about anything in life so far. Did you know that I actually fell in love with marketing and brand management while I was an actress? It's what fueled my passion to pursue my MBA for those wondering why I left. Yes, it IS possible to have dreams other than being a famous movie star, believe it or not!In the process, I found lifelong companionship unexpectedly from my classmate-turned-husband. I reconnected on a deeper level with friends I had lost touch with while I was in India. A great decision to pursue films...but even better decision to leave to pursue my true passion!.You always have choices in life. Take risks. Be open. Your decisions aren't set in stone, your dreams and goals will keep evolving as you do. 34 yr old Richa has very different interests and lifestyle preferences than 24 yr old Richa. And I love my life now . Thank you all for watching my films, appreciating my work, continuing to support me after I've left and celebrating me after all these years! Very grateful to every one of you, without whom I wouldn't have had a short but successful film career.
#HappyThanksgiving from Oregon.nd for all you Mayakkam Enna fans, in real life, I am Karthik and Joe is my Yamini. He's always supported me no matter what- 4 years together, even though just 1 year married- and that's the kind of companionship I wish for anyone else out there looking for a life partner", tweeted Richa.
