Jyothika’s 'Kaatrin Mozhi' to go on the floors from June

Jyothika’s 'Kaatrin Mozhi' to go on the ...

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 housewife who struggles to find her identity in the Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu, to be directed by Radha Mohan.

Titled Kaatrin Mozhi, it has been learned from reliable sources that the film will go on the floors from early June. Having completed her portion on Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, Jyothika is expected to leave on a two-week holiday to the US with her family. Upon her return from holiday, she will start shooting for Kaatrin Mozhi.

The makers are eyeing October release this year. 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.”
