The film is rumoured to be about a real life murderer from '80s Chennai.

The motion poster for Bala's upcoming film Naachiyar with Jyothika and GV Prakash in lead roles is out.

With shots from the film that show the "look" of the lead characters as well as director Bala and music composer Ilaiyaraaja, the motion poster is quite intriguing. One sees Jyothika in a jogging suit as well as a saree.  It's rumoured that the film, which is supposedly a crime thriller, is based on Jayaprakash, a real life killer who murdered nine members of his family in Chennai in the 1980s. We don't quite know what roles the actors will play if this is true. Perhaps Jyothika will be playing a cop, going by her look?

After 36 Vayadhiniley, Jyothika is yet to have a release. Her Magalir Mattum is expected to finally hit screens on August 11 after several delays. The actor had reportedly walked out of Vijay 61 to accommodate dates for Naachiyar. Since her comeback to cinema, Jyothika has shown a keen interest in doing projects that are woman-centric.  Bala, who made his debut with Sethu, is known to make films that are graphic and disturbing in content. He has chosen to show the ugly side of life without flinching. This is, however, for the first time that the director is doing a film centered around a female lead.
