Popular Malayalam TV actor Ambili Devi has announced that she is taking a break from acting, following her pregnancy. Ambili, who has been playing the popular character Preethi in the television show Sthreepadam, aired on Mazhavil Manorama, told her fans that doctors had advised her to take rest.
Her announcement came via Facebook where she also added that another actor will be replacing her in Sthreepadam and asked her fans to accept the new actor.
Stating that she was nearly four months pregnant, Ambili said "Due to my health conditions, I am not in a situation to continue work. I had been hospitalised earlier and I take injections once a week. I am right now not in a position to walk or travel".
Ambili got married to TV actor Adithyan in January this year. She added that deciding to take a break from work has been a difficult choice but that she is forced to do it for her health. Ambili Devi also praised the producer of the show Suresh Unnithan, and added that he supported her decision and encouraged her to return to acting when she is better.
"We are very happy. We didn't expect the kind of support we received from Unnithan sir and the production. To take a break from such a set, even if it is temporary is a hard thing to do. So please continue supporting the show and whoever replaces me as Preethi," she added
Ambili Devi has been a part of Sthreepadam for the last two years. The actor is expecting her second child. She has a 7-year-old from her previous marriage to cinematographer Lowell.
