Jyothika rakes it in

JYOTHIKA WAS just `Nagma's sister' when she stepped onto the silver screen. But right from her debut film Vaali she began to make waves. The actress's latest films have gone unnoticed and she was on the verge of being written off. But, buzz has it that she is still refusing to act for anything less than Rs. 30 lakhs per film! However, it pays to persist. The latest buzz doing the rounds is that she has been signed on by Serene Movie Makers for their film `Raja' with Ajit, to be directed by Ezhil. Vijaykanth has also signed her up. Apparently even Kannada star Upendra is willing to pay her this huge amount as he feels he can make a better entry into Tamil films with Jyothika opposite him! Make hay while the sun shines... should we say while luck lasts?
