Jyothirmayi is an Indian actress. Starting her career in modelling, she ventured into television, working as an anchor and later starring in TV series.

She was at first a serial artist then got introduced to Indian films through the film savanna. She had acted in various films in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and English. She then paired up with great actors of Malayalam including Mohanlal and Mammootty. She also got offers opposite superstars Sathyaraj, Vijaykanth etc.

Since, she has acted in nearly thirty films in Malayalam as well as in Tamil and Telugu language.

She was born in Kottayam, Kerala and as the only daughter of Janardhanan Unni and Saraswathy Unni. She resides in Kochi at Kochukadavanthara. She studied at Mata Nagar School and later at St. Mary's School. She joined Maharaja's College for pre-degree. She studied for diploma in Public Relations and Journalism from Kerala Press Academy. It was then that she began anchoring programmes on Citi channel and later Asianet. Her start was with ramp shows and modeling. Later, she went into serials and from there onto movies.

She was a serial artist at first. Indraneelam is one of her famous serials. She has also acted in some Telefilms but was not successful. In her first film Pilots, she played a minor character and the film was a failure. She became a top actress after Meesha Madhavan.

She got married to Nishanth Harikumar, a software engineer on September 6, 2004. Nishanth is the grandson of famous Nadaswaram maestro Ambalappuzha Shankaranarayana Panicker. The couple had recently filed for divorce.

After some impressive roles in a few offbeat films, Jyothirmayee acquired a reputation as the quintessential "thinking man's heroine." But then that is discounting her feisty dance in 'Meesa Madhavan,' which proved, once and for all, that she is not a one-dimensional actor.
