Tumhari Sulu, starring Vidya Balan was released last year, and became an unexpected hit, accumulating both critical and commercial accolades. Vidya’s role as Sulu was especially praised by the media, which led to a slew of awards for her performance. Now, it has been announced that the movie is going to be remade in Tamil language and is going to star actress, Jyothika. G Dhananjayan has acquired the rights from the producers of the movie, Tseries and Ellipsis entertainment. Radha Mohan is going to direct the movie. Jyothika is one of the most recognizable actress’ in the south, having worked mainly in Tamil movies.
She has made a number of critically acclaimed movies in Tamil and been rewarded the Filmfare award for best actress three times. It would be a very interesting project for her, and could also prove successful, both critically and commercially.
Jyothika made her debut in the Hindi film industry in Doli Saja Ke Rakhna, which was also a critically acclaimed movie. There have been no reports or announcements about the rest of the cast, but the movie could begin shooting soon. It is always difficult to star in a movie that has Vidya Balan as the lead, but going by the record of Jyothika, it is clear that she is going to do full justice to the character of Sulu and the movie.
