“I love spending time with them and so does Suriya. Whenever he is not working, the four of us spend time together – mostly we’re at home!”
Within a few minutes of our conversation with Jo, it is very evident that all her daily activities are centered around her children.“Raising two children is a daunting task – they trust you and look up to you for all their needs – Diya is seven years old and Dev is five. From planning their meals, to sending them to school to set up play-dates, I do everything. I am by their side at all times, playing games with them or narrating stories. I love spending time with them and so does Suriya.
Whenever he is not working, the four of us spend time together – mostly we’re at home!” And what does she do when her children are at school? “I get to have some “me” time! I religiously work out and spend some time with my friends – all of us get together for a cup of coffee; every week, we ensure that we catch a movie.” As an afterthought, she adds, “In fact, it was my friends who encouraged and pushed me to act in 36 Vayadhinile.
I was very reluctant at the beginning to leave my children alone; my friends and family took turns to come home and spend time with my children – ensure that they did their homework, had their meals on time and played outdoors! They always gave me timely updates on my children and reassured me at every stage of getting back to acting.”
