The film will be helmed by debut director S Raj.

Actress Jyothika, who made a smashing comeback with 36 Vayadhinile, is on a signing spree. Having recently completed work in Kaatrin Mozhi, the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu, and Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, it was announced on Tuesday that she’s signed her next project.

On Tuesday it was announced that Jyothika has signed a yet-untitled film with debut director S Raj in the banner of Dream Warrior Pictures, who are currently bankrolling Suriya’s NGK. The statement added that the regular shooting will commence from October and the makers are in the process of finalising rest of the cast and crew.

Meanwhile, Jyothika’s Kaatrin Mozhi, which marks her reunion with director Radha Mohan, is gearing up for release on October 18. On the occasion of her last day of the shoot with the team, Jyotika surprised 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 ceremony on July 25, Jyotika mentioned excitedly that this was the best team she has worked with in her career and thanked everyone for their good work.

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 Jyothika’s husband, Lakshmi will reprise Neha Dhupia’s role from the original.
