Devayani, who is currently one of the leading ladies of the small screen organized a small celebration in honor of her serial, Kodi Mullai which had successfully crossed the 105 episodes mark. She plays a dual role in this drama and portrays an aged woman as well as a younger woman. The popular actress said that both were challenging roles and she is happy the public have accepted the show.
When asked about her return to the big screen, Devayani said she is waiting for good roles and characters that offer a challenge even if they are mother roles. On being asked why she turned down Ajith's Varalaru, the actress admitted that she had reservations about the role which eventually went to Kanika because her character had to scream at Ajith and use really abusive language. Having worked with him on a number of hit films, Devayani said she was too fond of him and could not bring herself to actually yell at him even if its only acting.
Devayani also thanked hubby/producer Rajkumar and her director Senthilkumar for believing in her and standing by her at all times.
