When Mallu heroines are moving towards Tamil and willing to strip for the good money, Gopika is different. She was offered an item song in Ajith film Tirupathi directed by Perarasu and produced by AVM. She was horrified and said a firm “no”. She has lot of big banners in Kerala and so she felt that her glamorous innings in Tamil would affect her image. She said that her song in Kana Kandain had got her bad publicity in Kerala.
