Anandhi Kayal married her beau Socrates last month (January 7) in Warangal. The wedding was a private event and only close friends and family were in attendance. But marriage hasn’t had any impact on her career path, says the actress. “We have known each other for four years and our friendship blossomed, so we decided to get married,” explains Anandhi.
“Nothing has changed after marriage,” says the 24-year-old actress, adding that marriage won’t prevent her from signing films. “In fact, I have started to listen to more scripts after my wedding and I have been able to strike a perfect balance between personal and professional life,” she says.
She will soon be seen in the Sudheer Babu-starrer Sridevi Soda Center. “I believe it’s the performance that gets you offers,” the actress says, stressing her view that marriage doesn’t bring down women’s capabilities.
“If a working woman outside the industry gets married, will she quit her job? We are the same. I am an actor, and I want to continue acting. says the Irandam Ulagaporin Kadaisi Gundu star.
Away from arc lights, Anandhi is a very private person. “I only use social media to promote my films,” she says, adding that she was shooting until two days before her marriage. “I could not even shop properly,” she reveals.
She re-commenced shooting about a week after the wedding. “Thankfully my husband isn’t complaining,” she quips. Socrates is a marine engineer by profession.
“He worked as an Assistant Director too since he was passionate about films, and he will soon make his directorial debut,” says the Kadavul Irukaan Kumaru star.
Since the couple is in the film industry, do they discuss films, we ask. “We do discuss movies, but when it comes to scripts, I believe in my instincts and take a call,” she says.
Although Anandhi Kayal is a Telugu girl (born in Warangal), she’s very popular in the Tamil film industry. She says she’s planning to sign more films in Telugu now.
