2012 might probably be best known as the year of Sridevi and her comeback with the light hearted comic hit English Vinglish. Not everyone, however, was as successful as Ms. Sri when they made a comeback after they retired to become homemakers. Here are a few comeback queens of our times.

Perhaps the one to prove her creative talents by bagging National Awards while making a comeback is Revathi. Recently, her documentary 'Red Building Where the Sun Sets' won the best non-feature film on family welfare for the year 2011.

Kushboo and Radhika are the most successful comeback queens of Tamil cinema. Although not in lead roles, they carved a name for themselves in television, film production and even in acting roles after they retired briefly from lead roles.

Nadiya, the endearing actor of the eighties Malayalam and Tamil cinema went into hibernation after her wedding only to resurface quite significantly in a lead role in Rajakumaran. Her comeback did not witness consistent performances but she did get some powerful roles.

Along the same line as Revathi, Rohini who is quite known in the dubbing circles and her powerful roles in movies is also trying her hands at direction. Rohini has written lyrics for the movie Maalai Pozhudhin Mayakathiley as well.
