Veteran actress, Joke Silva, who has built her brand over the years has said that she would never accept an amount that does not worth her value in any movie role.
She said that it would be a disservice for her to undermine her worth.
In her words, “The simple reason I don’t appear in movies is that when I get offered films, what they are offering to pay is ludicrous.
So I’m not doing it. At the stage that I am in my career, I have created a brand and that brand is well known and has taken a few years to build.
“It has remained consistent over the years. So, I really don’t think I have to devalue it, so when they are ready for my value, they will let me know.”
Speaking about her re-invention, she said that it has not been a conscious effort but situations and circumstances around would always want you do re-invent.
When she was asked about how she felt marrying her husband despite the age get married. We met at the theatre and after then we started dating. We started out as extremely good friends. My family and friends all liked him.
“My mother liked him a lot but my father was concerned about the age gap. By the time we discussed it, he came around,”
