“It was God’s will. I had always been a religious person, but one incident changed my life. My son was diagnosed with throat tumour. I was helpless and turned to God for help. I stopped working in films and spent all my time praying for him. Ten days later, when he was taken for a test, the doctors were surprised because cancer had vanished. It was the beginning of a new life for me” said Johnny. It was a hard time for Johnny and Sujatha.
