Actor Suriya who is also a doting husband of actress Jyothika has taken some time off his busy schedule and confirmed Jyo’s comeback to Tamil films.
As we reported earlier, Jyothika aka Jyo is setting the stage to make her comeback and will soon start the shooting of her next Tamil film, which is the remake of Malayalam movie ‘How Old Are You’.
Now Suriya said, “We both watched Manju Warrier’s How Old Are You together and very impressed with the script. Hence I decided to buy the remake rights. When I asked Jyothika if she can do Manju Warrier’s role, which also marks the latter’s comeback to the silver screen, Jyo took 2 days and then given her nod, since the character was showing women in such a positive highlight.”
“Jyothika will continue to act provided the script is women centric and if the role has substance.”, Suriya concluded.
Suriya will bankroll this remake venture on his 2D Entertainments banner. Rosshan Andrrews has wielded the megaphone for the original and viewers had to wait a little for more details on ‘How Old Are You’ Tamil remake…
Jyothika, wife of actor Suriya, is all set to face the arc lights after seven years with the Tamil remake of recent Malayalam hit “How Old Are You”.
The film will be produced by Suriya’s home banner 2D Entertainment.
“Jyothika is all set to return in the Tamil remake of blockbuster Malayalam movie ‘How Old Are You’ that featured Manju Warrier in the lead role,” a statement said.
“2D Entertainment has now acquired the remake rights of this film, which will be directed by Rosshan Andrrews, who helmed the original as well. The process of finalising the rest of the cast is underway,” the statement added.
Incidentally, “How Old Are You” was the comeback movie of Manju Warrier to Malayalam films after a long gap.
Jyothika, who is known for films like “Kaakha Kaakha”, “Vettaiyaadu Vilayadu” and “Manmadhan”, was last seen in 2007 Tamil film “Manikanda”.
She quit acting after the birth of her daughter Diya in 2007. Three years later, she was blessed with a boy, Dev.
