Director Jeethu Joseph, whose last Tamil outing was the Kamal Haasan starrer Papanasam, is returning to Kollywood with a new project starring Jyothika and her brother-in-law Karthi. The two of them will be sharing screen space for the first time together.
The yet to be titled project, which also stars Sathyaraj in a crucial role, went on the floors on Saturday. The makers released a special poster to mark the occasion of the commencement of the project.
The film features Jyothika and Karthi as siblings. Rensil D’Silva and Manikandan will be associating with the director for the scripting work and it will be jointly bankrolled by Viacom 18 and Parallel Minds Productions.
Karthi took to Twitter and wrote: “Thrilled to share screen space with Anni (sis-in-law) for the first time. Looking forward to work with Jeethu Joseph sir. Sathyaraj sir brings more strength to us. With all your blessings shoot begins today.”
Malayalam actor Anson also plays a crucial role in the film, which has music by Govind Vasantha.
RD Rajasekar has been roped in to crank the camera. The makers are yet to reveal the rest of the cast and crew.

Jyothika is juggling between two projects which were launched recently. In one of the projects, being directed by debutant S. Raj, she plays a school teacher. Recently, the film’s makers released a statement in which they said that a school set worth Rs. 50 lakh is being erected in Chennai where most of the shooting will take place. The project will also star Poornima Bhagyaraj, Sathyan, Hareesh Peradi and Kavitha Bharathi among other actors. Sean Roldan has been roped in to take care of music while Gokul Benoy will crank the camera.
Jyothika recently wrapped up shooting for a comedy flick with director S. Kalyan, who had previously directed Gulebaghavali. Tipped to be an action-comedy, the film will see Jyothika and Revathi play roles that will see them together throughout the entire course of the movie. The film also features Yogi Babu and Anandraj in crucial roles.
