After playing a ruthless, no-nonsense cop in Balaâ€™s Naachiyaar, Jyothika will be seen playing a homemaker who struggles to find her identity in the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu, which is being directed by Radha Mohan.
Titled Kaatrin Mozhi, Jyotika completed shooting her portions in the film in a start to finish single schedule. The film commenced shooting on June 4th and the team went on to shoot without a break. Jyothika completed her portions on July 25, 2018, according to a statement.
On the occasion of her last day of the shoot with the team, Jyotika surprised everyone by gifting a silk saree and silk (dhoti) veshti and shirt to all the crew members and took photos with them. She also presented a special gift to all assistant directors for their fantastic work. The entire crew was delighted with her kind gesture. During the cake cutting event on July 25th night, Jyotika mentioned excitedly that this was the best team she had worked with in her career. She thanked everyone for their tremendous work which made the experience of working in this film a pleasant and enjoyable one for her.
Both the director Radhamohan and producer G. Dhananjayan thanked her for the wonderful gesture and support in wrapping up her portions of the film in a single schedule. The film has a few more days of shoot left with other artists. The makers are eyeing an October 18th release. Apparently, Mohan and Jyothika have been planning to work together for quite some time and both felt Tumhari Sulu, which struck gold at the box-office, would be the best option.In the film, Vidya plays a hard-working homemaker, who works as an RJ on a late night show.
National award-winning editor KL Praveen and cinematographer Mahesh Muthusamy have been roped in for the remake, which also stars Vidharth and Lakshmi Manchu in crucial roles. While Vidharth will be seen playing Jyothikaâ€™s husband, Lakshmi will reprise Neha Dhupiaâ€™s role from the original.
