Three cheers!

Actor Gayathri Jayaraman is back as a talent show judge on Vijay TV

Gayathri Jayaraman, who seemed to have taken a long sabbatical, was recently seen as a judge in the Chennai Super Kings Cheer Leaders, a programme on Vijay TV.

Ask the actor about her comeback and she says, “It’s no comeback. It does not mean I am going to start working in films or TV. I was asked by Vijay TV if I would judge the show and I agreed.” Over 10 teams from across Tamil Nadu will contest in the initial episodes. Their dancing and cheering skills will be tested by Gayathri and former cricketer Sadagopan Ramesh.

Gayathri is now a certified scuba diving instructor in the Andamans. “Each year, for nearly seven months I am in the Andamans. I enjoy scuba diving so much that I love my job of an instructor. So, I gave up films.” What if you get to work in serials? “It’s difficult as most serials are long-running. I cannot be away from my work for long. August to February is the peak season in the Andamans. That is why I accepted Vijay TV offer as I had to be here only in March.” Are you not tempted to do films? “I did three films in Tamil and the song ‘Manja kaatu maina’ from the film ‘Manathai Thirudivittai’ was a big hit. Then I did ‘April Mathathil’ and ‘Vaseegara’. If you want to do something, you need give it enough time and energy. I wouldn’t like to take up work, leave it half-way. If someone can wind up a film in three months then I will think about it,” smiles the actor.
