Jyothika to star in Mani Ratnam’s next

After several years, Jyothika made a stunning comeback with 36 Vayathinile, a remake of the Malayalam hit How Old Are You? That fetched her the Filmfare Critics Award For Best Actress. Jyothika is currently gearing up for the release of Magalir Mattum, a new-age women-centric drama.

While promoting the film, Jyothika made an interesting revelation.The Khakka Khakka actor has been roped in to star in Mani Ratnam’s next feature film, which will go on the floors next year. Interestingly, the project will mark Jyothika’s first film with Ratnam, who previously produced the Madhavan and Jyothika-starrer Dum Dum Dum. Reports also suggest that Vijay Sethupathi has been approached to play the lead. However, we await an official confirmation regarding the same.

Jyothika has interesting a lineup this year. Post Magalir Mattum, she will be next seen in filmmaker Bala’s Nachiyar, in which Jyothika is rumoured to be playing a cop.

After much delay, Magalir Mattum directed by Brahma of Kuttram Kadithal fame will hit the screens on September 15. Loosely based on the yesteryear hit, the film also stars Urvashi, Bhanupriya and Saranya Ponvannan in pivotal roles.
