National award winning actress Meera Jasmine, who has garnered over 35 awards in her filmi career of 10 years for her impressive performances in some of the best super hits in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Kannada, is likely to quit movies soon.
One of the reasons behind her retirement from movies is said to be her upcoming marriage with her long time beau Mandolin Rajesh. Mandolin Rajesh, who belongs to an orthodox Hindu family in Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh, announced in October 2010 that he would marry the actress in 2011.
Another reason is her back-to-back debacles. The actress had a string of flops in Malayalam in the last two years: Minnaminikootam, Calcutta News, Ore Kadal, Pattinte Palazhi and Mohabbat. Her recent Tamil films Pen Singam and Ilanjian were too colossal flops. The buzz is that due to the failure of her films at the box office, no producer is willing to sign her up, forcing her to quit films.
