Ever since she returned to face the arc lights after a hiatus of eight years with 2015 Tamil drama 36 Vayadhinile, Jyothika has made some really interesting career choices. Constantly reinventing with her roles that range from a documentary filmmaker in Magalir Mattum to a hot-headed and foul-mouthed cop in Naachiyaar, she’s set the perfect example for being versatile.

Gearing up to commence work on Mani Ratnam’s upcoming bilingual multi-starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, Jyothika is all set to reunite with Mozhi director Radha Mohan for the Tamil remake of Vidya Balan’s heartwarming drama Tumhari Sulu.

Talks have already been initiated with respect to the project which is expected to go on the floors from June or July.

“The project is very much on and an official announcement can be expected very soon. Jyothika will have to complete her portion in Mani Ratnam’s project and only then can she commence shooting for this film. Meanwhile, director Radha Mohan will finalise the rest of the cast and start the pre-production process,” a source close to the filmmaker told Firstpost.

According to the industry grapevine, actor Suriya will bankroll the project for his wife Jyothika.

Radha Mohan and Jyothika had previously worked together in the critically-acclaimed Mozhi, which featured the latter in the role of a mute and deaf girl. The film went on to win three state awards and four Filmfare South awards.

Since her comeback in 36 Vayadhinile, Jyothika had mentioned in a few of her interviews that she’s looking for an opportunity to join hands with Radha Mohan once again.
