It’s
been
around
31
years
since
the
Tamil-speaking
society
has
seen
Amala
on
a
big
screen.
Her
last
appearance
in
a
Tamil
movie
was
in
1991.
Now
we
are
seeing
her
at
the
theatres
in

Kanam

(Oke
Oka
Jeevitham

in
Telugu).
The
film
has
been
shot
in
two
languages
with
a
slightly
modified
cast
for
each.
Amala
appears
in
both
editions.

Speaking
of
Chennai,
in
an
interview
with
Baradwaj
Rangan
for
Galatta
Plus,
and
about
being
back
in
the
Tamil
industry
she
remarked
that
it
always
feels
special
being
here,
and
she
gave
a
very
valid
and
warm
reason
for
that.
She
said
that
while
everywhere
else
people
recognise
her
as
Nagarjuna’s
wife,
Akhil’s
mom,
or
Akkineni
Family’s
Daughter-in-law,
here
in
Tamilnadu,
people
recognise
her
as
Amala.
She
has
her
own
legacy
here
that
is
not
associated
with
anybody
else
but
her.
And
the
fact
that
this
legacy
has
survived
and
thrived
over
thirty
years
of
being
inactive,
is
a
huge
deal.

When
asked
about
the
reason
for
her
choosing
to
work
on
this
project,
she
said
that
she
has
always
been
having
a
day
job
that
kept
her
occupied,
and
recently
it
has
been
the
film
institute
that
is
run
by
her
family.
She
felt
that
being
in
touch
with
the
current
techniques
of
filmmaking,
and
the
evolution
of
the
craft,
would
enable
her
to
better
perform
her
responsibilities,
to
her
satisfaction.

She
explained
that
while
emotions
are
the
core
of
any
art
form,
they
might
become
taxing
for
the
audience
if
there
is
nothing
to
cushion
the
intense
emotional
experiences
being
narrated.
And
she
felt
that
this
film
had
enough
distractions
to
keep
the
audience
engaged
so
that
they
can
be
guided
through
the
journey
of
the
characters.
She
emphasised
that
this
film
has
something
very
important
to
convey
to
society.

Going
back
to
her
actor
life,
Amala
said
that
there
was
a
time
when
she
was
having
a
lot
of
fun
playing
all
these
characters
written
by
other
people,
but
at
one
point
she
wondered
if
she
had
a
sense
of
identity,
and
decided
that
she
needed
to
get
one.
And
seeing
how
her
partner
encouraged
her,
she
got
into
rescuing
animals
and
attempted
to
create
order
amidst
the
mess
that
existed
around
her.
She
said
that
during
this
period
she
was
exposed
to
a
different
side
of
life,
and
she
said
“once
you
experience
that,
you
can’t
get
back
to
the
pretend
world.”

She
went
on
to
talk
about
the
void
she
felt
after
her
father-in-law
passed
on.
She
said
that
she
discovered
how
much
legacy
exists
within
the
family
that
needed
leadership
and
attention,
especially
the
college.
She
said
it
has
been
a
wonderful
journey
working
with
young
people
and
nudging
them
toward
their
dreams.

The
way
she
has
this
overflowing
kindness
and
a
rested
vibe
with
her
is
endearing.
Amala
has
been
and
always
will
be
a
source
of
positive
energy,
and
she
continues
to
spread
it
wherever
she
is,
whatever
she
does.
She
has
been
an
actor,
an
animal
rescuer,
and
the
leader
of
an
educational
institution,
and
only
she
knows
how
many
roles
she
has
donned
in
her
inspirational
journey
so
far.
There
are
also
the
very
many
roles
she
will
take
up
going
forward.

Our
only
hope
is
that
whatever
she
does,
we
get
to
know
about
it,
we
get
to
see
her
talk
about
it
so
that
her
experiences
can
continue
to
inspire
us,
and
we
can
keep
working
toward
becoming
someone
as
emotionally
rich
as
her.
A
very
happy
birthday
to
the
human
being
who
forever
remains
the
crush
of
many
generations
of
film
lovers.
Amala
isn’t
just
a
name,
it’s
an
emotion.
Happy
birthday
Amala!
