Suriya says he may act alongside his actress-wife Jyotika in a Tamil project next year. The duo has been reading scripts over the last few months for their comeback on screen.
Suriya and Jyotika were last seen on screen in 2006 Tamil romantic-drama “Sillunu Oru Kadhal”.
“Talks are on. We are listening to scripts and if everything goes as planned, we may act together next year,” Suriya said at the success meet of Jyotika’s comeback film “36 Vayadhinile”.
He is extremely elated with the response to “36 Vayadhinile”, which is also his maiden production venture.
“The response has been phenomenal. Jo (Jyotika) has been getting so many calls ever since the film released. The film has also done well at the box office and we’re thankful to everybody,” he said.
“My parents said Jo is a better actor than me and that only makes me proud. With this film, I think she has proved it,” Suriya added.
“36 Vayadhinile”, which was directed by Rosshan Andrrews, has raked in over Rs.10 crore in over two weeks since its release.
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…
