Mollywood's most-loved moms

Retirement post marriage was the unsaid yet widely accepted norm for most actresses across the film industry. Though, a close introspection of Mollywood would reveal that the industry has always welcomed back its talented actresses, post their wedding and mother roles in real life... so much so that the most-loved young moms in recent times are setting new yardsticks for the yummy mummy brigade! TOI takes a dekko.

Shwetha Menon
She's been controversy's favourite child right from the time she sent shockwaves across puritan hearts with the condom ad with Milind Soman. Ironical as it may sound, Shwetha entered matrimony at a time when she played the protagonist, Rathi, in the remake of Rathinirvedam, where she played the muse of an adolescent boy. The actress stirred a hornet's nest yet again when she let her delivery be filmed for Blessy's Kalimannu, sparking off a new series of debates. However, Shwetha is unfazed by the series of criticisms, continues to make bold statements with her choice of films and has even declared that she'll give an apt reply to a politician who snubbed her (saying her next delivery would be in an open ground) once Kalimannu hits the screens. Bold and beautiful, did we hear?

Bhagyadevatha and Pazhassiraja set the ball rolling for Kaniha for a successful stint as an actress in M-Town post her marriage. While her marriage to US-based software engineer Syam seemed to have spelt the end of her career as an actress, Kaniha continued to get good offers from the industry.

And motherhood (she's mom to a three-year-old son) was no reason to put a full stop to her career. The actress went on to act alongside the big Ms of Mollywood in Spirit and Bavuttiyude Namathil, and also has a handful of films that will hit the screens this year. Way to go!

She bid adieu to films with Veruthe Oru Bharya, where she starred alongside Jayaram, after she wed Ajilesh Chacko and settled down in Ireland. Though, she returned to do Swa Le with Dileep a little later. Now the mom of a three-year-old girl, Gopika is back on the screen once more to team up with Jayaram in Akku Akbar's recent release. Incidentally, the same team of Veruthe Oru Bharya that gave the actress a warm send-off years ago, have now welcomed her back to the industry, with the recent release having almost the same crew. Welcome home, Gopika!

Nadia Moidu
Now, age sure has forgotten to catch up with this actress! Nadia, who was the most-loved bubbly actress in her heyday, will soon be back in M-Town with Aaru Sundarikalude Kadha (ASK). The actress, who has sizzled onscreen in Telugu and Tamil besides Malayalam, settled down abroad post marriage and made a comeback of sorts with M Kumaran S/o Mahalaxmi. While Sohan Seenulal's Doubles had her team up to do a sister act alongside Mammootty a handful of years ago, ASK will see her in an entirely different makeover. We can't wait to watch the bundle of energy once more...

Navya Nair
Here's another actress who has pulled out at all the stops to be in the limelight even after marriage and motherhood. Nandanam's Balamani starred alongside all the leading heroes of her time before she took a break from films. Scene I Nammude Veedu paved the way for her comeback last year. While the actress is busy judging dance reality shows and giving stage performances, fans are eagerly looking forward to her next signing in M-Town.
