Jyothika, who made a terrific comeback to acting after an eight-year-long hiatus with 36 Vayadhinile, has been making some interesting career moves. After playing a ruthless, no-nonsense cop in Bala’s Naachiyaar, she will be seen playing a homemaker who struggles to find her identity in the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu, to be directed by Radha Mohan.

Titled Kaatrin Mozhi, the project officially went on the floors on June 4 following a customary puja which was attended by the entire cast and crew. Via a statement, the makers confirmed they're eyeing an October release. Jyothika's husband Suriya and father-in-law, yesteryear actor Sivakumar, attended the customary puja ceremony. 

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 Vidhaarth and Lakshmi Manchu in crucial roles. While Vidhaarth will be seen playing Jyothika’s husband, Lakshmi will reprise Neha Dhupia’s role from the original.

On signing the project, Jyothika said in a statement: “I'm a big Vidya (Balan) fan. I love her voice and command over Hindi, which is rare in Bollywood today. I’ve watched every Vidya film, and Tumhari Sulu, in my opinion, is her most lovable work. I feel honoured to be stepping into her shoes. Kudos to the producers and to director Suresh (Triveni) for making such a lively, honest, real and feel-good film. Tumhari Sulu is a hugely special film for me.”
