Bofta Media Works, which is producing the Tamil remake of the Vidya Balan hit Tumhari Sulu, has announced a 'Guess the title' contest, the selected winners of which will get the opportunity to meet the cast of the film at the shooting spot.
The Tamil remake, to be directed by Radhamohan, will feature Jyothika in the lead role. Actor Vidharth, who appeared in films such as Kurangu Bommai and Oru Kidayin Karunai Manu, will play her husband in the film. Jyothika has previously worked with Radhamohan in the critically acclaimed film Mozhi.
The team has also given three clues for contestants to guess the title. They are:
1. The title has two words
2. One word relates to Radhamohan and Jyotika
3. The other word relates to Radio FM
Radio Radha? Radha FM? Radha 99.5? These are some of our guesses!
Lakshmi Manchu is also part of the cast and she will be playing the role that Neha Dhupia did in the original. Tumhari Sulu is about a homemaker who becomes an RJ. Not just any RJ but one who runs a late night chat show where she speaks seductively to the callers. Vidya Balan's performance was terrific to say the least and the film went on to become a big hit.
The Tamil film industry is currently on a strike and shooting of films has been stopped. However, Bofta has said that the shooting for the film will commence from June. The three-day contest ends on April 20 at 6 pm. You can enter the contest here.
Jyothika's last film was the Bala directorial Naachiyaar, in which she played a foul-mouthed cop. The film did fairly well at the box-office and Jyothika made it clear that she wasn't going to restrict herself to playing vanilla roles since her comeback. The actor is also part of Mani Ratnam's next film Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
