Actress Devayani has asserted that she would never play mother to any of the contemporary heroes. The actress, who quit films a few years back following her marriage with director Rajakumaran, is busy as a bee on small-screen. She is extremely popular among the small-screen viewers with serials starring her in lead roles on air in television channels.
“Though I’m not acting in films, I’m much in demand on small screens playing lead roles in tele-serials. I’m game for films provided I’m offered substantial and meaningful roles. At any cost, though, I won’t be playing mother to today’s heroes as I don’t think I’m old enough to be considered as ‘mother’ to them.
“I was offered films where I was asked to play mother to some of the heroes; I refused those offers. The irony is that I was asked to play mother to some of the heroes with whom I have acted as heroine in my early days. I would never do such a thing.
“I have starred in as many as 100 films so far and have done a variety of roles. I am determined to take up only those roles which pose some sort of challenge to me as an actress. At present, I’m playing one such role in a film being made by Rajakumaran,” concludes Devayani, remembered by fans for her role in ‘Kaadhal Kottai’.
