It’s going to be a busy year ahead for Jyothika as she has multiple releases. Last seen playing an honest, fearless school headmistress in Raatchasi, her new film with debutant director JJ Fredrick has been titled Pon Magal Vandhal and its title poster was unveiled on Monday by Suriya, who will be bankrolling the project under his 2D Entertainment banner.

The title poster features a smoking gun, a hand fan and a profile of Jyothika, who is rumoured to be playing a character who is on the run and looking for revenge. The film will also star K Bhagyaraj, R Parthiban, Pandiarajan and Pratap Pothen in crucial roles. The project is expected to go on the floors soon. Composer Govind Vasantha of 96 fame has been roped in to compose music while Ramji will crank the camera.
Apart from this film, Jyothika currently awaits the release of two more projects – Jackpot and a yet-untitled project with Jeethu Joseph. Until last year, Jyothika was doing one project a year, but this year she is most likely to have two more releases and if everything goes as planned, Pon Magal Vandhal might also make it to the screens towards the end of 2019.
There are also reports that the actor might join hands with Aramm director Gopi Nainar for a new project. Apparently, Gopi Nainar has already pitched the story and impressed Jyothika with his narration. However, she is yet to officially sign on the dotted line. She is reportedly slightly reluctant to take on a new project at the moment as she has two films in the pipeline. It is to be noted that it was recently confirmed that Gopi Nainar will direct the sequel to Aramm with Nayanthara. It’s quite possible that he might finish Aramm 2 and then team up with Jyothika for this yet-untitled project.
