Jyothika is a wonderful actress; Never thought someone as big as her would remake my film: Vidya Balan
We had recently reported about Jyothika remaking Vidya Balan’s superhit movie Tumhari Sulu in Tamil. Radha Mohan is directing the movie and Dhanjayan Govindan is producing it under the banner of BOFTA Media Works. Tumhari Sulu directed by Suresh Triveni is the story of an ambitious housewife who becomes a radio jockey for a late-night relationship advice show. The movie worked well at the box office majorly due to Vidya Balan’s tremendous performance.
In a recent interview, Vidya was all praise of Jyoyhika and sounded delighted about the remake. She is quoted saying, “Jyothika is a wonderful actress. I never thought someone as big as her would act in a remake of my film. Bhool Bhulaiya was a remake of Chandramukhi, where she essayed the lead role. I am sure she will do a great job with the remake of Tumhari Sulu as well.”
The remake starring Jyothika has not yet been titled. This is her second film with Radha Mohan after the widely acclaimed Mozhi. Jyothika’s performance as a differently abled person is regarded as her career best. The actress is expected to deliver another excellent performance when she teams up with the same director once again.
Radha Mohan is currently in the process of reworking the script to suit the sensibilities of the Tamil audience. Lakshmi Manchu has been signed to reprise the role played by Neha Dhupia in the original. Cinematographer Mahesh Muthuswami and editor Praveen KL are already confirmed for the project. More details about the title and other cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
