Jyotika confirmed to play the role of Vidya Balan in Tamil remake of Tumhari Sulu
The actor will be reunited with director Radha Mohan for the first time since Mozhi
Vidya Balan-starrer, Tumhari Sulu, is set to be remade in Tamil. The remake rights of the drama-comedy, directed by Suresh Triveni, has been bought by the Chennai-based BOFTA Media Works India, which is currently producing Mr Chandramouli.
Jyotika will play Vidya Balan’s character, Sulu, the housewife-turned-night RJ who becomes an instant hit and perseveres to balance her life as a home-maker and career woman.
Radha Mohan, who will direct the Tamil version, said, “I am excited to be directing such an appreciated film like Tumhari Sulu, and with Jyotika, with whom I had a great association in Mozhi. I was impressed with the realistic presentation of Tumhari Sulu and hope to re-create the magic in Tamil with Jyotika.”
Jyotika said, “I am a big Vidya (Balan) fan. I love her voice and command over Hindi, which is rare in Bollywood today. I’ve watched every film of hers, 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 Suresh (Triveni) for making such a lively, honest, real and feel-good film!”
The team is finalising the rest of the cast and crew of the Tamil remake, and these details will shared in due course.
