Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Jyothika paired up for the hit movie Kushi way back in 2002, so when news that the latter would be playing a pivotal role in Vijay 61 emerged, fans were excited. However, at the last moment, Jyothika walked out of the project which gave rise to various rumours including the one that her husband and actor Suriya did not want her to work with Vijay again.
Putting an end to all the rumours, Jyothika, during an interaction with the media said that there was a particular issue that forbade her from taking up the role at the last minute. Stating that no external pressure could stall an actor at the last minute, she said the issue has been sorted out with director Atlee and she doesnâ€™t want to delve on it now.
Hindustan Times had quoted Jo as saying, â€śSuriya was not the reason I walked out of the project. Neither did my family stop me. One doesnâ€™t walk out of a film at the last minute due to external pressure. I had a certain issue which was later settled amicably. But, I feel it shouldnâ€™t be discussed. People who tweet various rumours on social media should think before levelling baseless allegations.â€ť
Magalir Mattum, which also has Urvashi, Saranya Ponvannan and Bhanupriya in the star cast, has Jyothika playing a documentary filmmaker. Nasser and Livingston are included in the star cast as well. The film is directed by Bramma of Kuttram Kadithal fame. Ghibran has composed music for this film with S Manikandan and CS Prem working as the cameraman and editor respectively.
Produced by Suriya under his banner 2D Entertainment, the film also has him making a guest appearance. The filmâ€™s audio launch happened recently and its release date is expected to be out soon.
