Last seen playing Arvind Swami’s wife in Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, Jyothika’s next release will be Radha Mohan directorial Kaatrin Mozhi, the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu. The film was originally slated to release on October 18 alongside Vishal’s Sandakozhi 2 and Dhanush’s Vada Chennai, which is slated to hit the screens a day earlier.
The latest update is that the release of Kaatrin Mozhi has been postponed and it will now hit the screens post-Diwali. Producer G. Dhananjayan took to twitter to make the announcement.
He wrote on his twitter page: “It’s raining new films week after week. We scheduled for October 18 release but looking at the list (of films) approved, it will be a hard battle to get proper theatres or shows. So we’re postponing the release to November, post Diwali. Will keep you updated."

Dhananjayan also shared the list of films that have been given the nod for release on October 18. Apart from Vada Chennai and Sandakozhi 2, three more Tamil films have also been given approval for release.
Kaatrin Mozhi marks the reunion of Jyothika and Radha Mohan after a decade. 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 Balan plays a hard-working homemaker, who works as an RJ in a late night show. The film 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.
Simbu will be seen in a cameo alongside Jyothika in the film, in which national-award winning KL Praveen has done the editing while cinematographer Mahesh Muthusamy cranked the camera.
