Jayalalithaa had a fledgling career in both cinema and politics. However, she didn’t take too kindly to a news item that appeared in the 1980s in a particular media, stating that she was struggling to make a comeback to films. She immediately sent a stinker to the editor in which she maintains that she left the filmdom on her own and certainly, not due to lack of offers. She even mentions that she turned down an offer to act opposite Rajinikanth in Billa and only after she refused the role, Sripriya was brought on board.

Jayalalithaa declined to act opposite Rajinikanth in Billa

In her own words: I feel constrained to point out that I'm not, I repeat, not 'struggling to stage a come-back'. I am at a loss to understand how you gained this erroneous impression.

In fact, I have been turning down some excellent offers. Perhaps you don't know that the heroine's role in Balaji's 'Billa', opposite Rajinikanth, was first offered to me. It was only after I refused to do the film, that Balaji signed Sripriya for the role. Everybody knows that Balaji is one of the foremost film producers in India today, and Rajinikanth is Tamil screen's superstar. If I am capable of turning down such a dazzling offer, does that not prove conclusively that I am not in the least struggling to stage a come-back?

By God's grace, I am extremely well off financially, and I can continue to live like a queen for the rest...
