Jyothika Sadanah was born in Bombay in a Punjabi family having very close ties with the film industry. She is daughter of a film producer, Chander Sadanah and Seema Sadanah. She has two sisters both of whom are actresses. They are Nandita (Nagma) and Radhika (Roshni). They also have a younger brother Rahul. This Punjabi beauty first foray into acting was through by the distinguished director, Priyadarshan, for his Hindi film Doli Saja ke Rakhna, opposite newcomer Akshaye Khanna. The film failed to make any impression on the box office, but her performance was recognized by the Tamil and Telugu industry. Soon she was signed for a Tamil Film 'Vaalee' for a cameo role alongside Ajith Kumar and Simran in 1999. This film was hugely successful. At a later date she confessed that initially she was to play the lead role eventually played by Simran in Vaalee but she refused it for Doli Saja Ke Rakhna and instead opted for the brief appearance instead. Her first Tamil movie as the lead actress was Poovellam Kaettupaar with Surya. This film paved the way for a thriving career in Tamil films. Her next movie with Ajith Kumar was 'Mugavaree', which was also a hit. After that she gave the best performance as well as the biggest hit of her career with 'Kushi' directed by SJ Suryah, who had previously directed her in Vaalee. This movie starring Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Jyothika and Vivek ran successfully for over 175 days. Jyothika layed the role of an egocentric self-centered woman who was in love but her ego led to conflicts with her lover. The story narrates the tale of two people who meet, fall in love, start fighting over small issues and then in the end come back together.

After that, she got the opportunity to act with renowned actor and filmmaker Kamal Haasan in 'Thenali'. Even her sister Nagma who was a very popular Tamil actress never got a chance to act with Kamal Haasan. A string of successful films followed, like Dum Dum Dum, Snehithiye, and so on. However, her success began to wane with Star as she put on too much weight and looked fat. Most of her movies released during the period of 2001-02 flopped, starting with Star, 12B, Raja, and the like.

She made a huge comeback with her first release of 2003, Dhool, starring Vikram, Reema Sen and Vivek. It was a runaway success and propelled Jo back to the acme of popularity. Her rocking chemistry with Vikram in Dhool and the hugely admired songs ensured that the movie run for over 200 days. 2003 proved to be one of the ebst years in her career as it gave her big hit with the Surya starrer Kaakha Kaakha. She played Maya, a teacher in the movie. Her next release of 2003, Thirumalai with Vijay, was also a tremendous hit. After that, in 2004, Perazhagan was released. She played, a double role in the movie for the first time in her career. One of the roles was that of a blind girl. She received the Dinakaran Best Actress award for her mind-blowing performance. She also acted in the super-hit Manmadhan with Silambarasanin 2004. Then after a forgettable Mayavi, came the movie that has altered her life. Chandramukhi (2005), starring the biggest superstar of the industry, Rajnikanth, is the biggest commercial hit of all time in Tamil Cinema. The role that Jyothika portrayed, that of a housewife troubled by a split personality, is the best ever role that she has ever played. Her performance in the climax sequences in this film will be etched in the memory of the audience for ever. will be remembered forever. She has to be applauded because she was able to direct the limelight towards herself even in a Rajinikanth movie.

She dated film star Surya for over 4 years and married him on 11 September 2006. After the wedding, she declared that she would quit films. However, being a true professional actress, she promised to completing all her pending projects that she was consign with before her marraige.
