Gowthamraj, the filmmaker who is currently awaiting the release of the Tamil film Veerappanin Gajana where he has worked as a story writer, will be reuniting with actor Jyothika for an upcoming film, the filmmaker confirmed to Silverscreen India on Tuesday.
The film will be Jyothika’s second collaboration with Gowthamraj after he directed her in the 2019 Tamil social drama Raatchasi.
Speaking to Silverscreen India, the filmmaker said, “There’s some for the project to take off. We are planning to commence the project around October or November. Since she has other commitments and also doing a film with Pon Parthiban, which has not yet commenced shooting, the shooting for this film will happen later.”
Gowthamraj said that Jyothika will essay the role of a doctor in the film and said that the film’s makers will officially announce the project.
“The script has been completed and the film is in the pre-production stage,” he said.
Gowthamraj said that the film’s producer is yet to be decided.
Meanwhile, Gowthamraj’s Veerappanin Gajana will be directed by debutant filmmaker Yasin.
“We have planned to release the film in a month’s time, around May or June. It will release in theatres. The film features Yogi Babu, Mottai Rajendran, and few others. The film involves a game of treasure hunt and has a combination of fun and serious elements. The film will highlight the needs of the forest and the film has a few scenes featuring the character Veerappan [bandit] and how the forests were secured during his time. However, the film is not a period drama but will have fantasy elements to it,” Gowthamraj said.
The post production work of Veerappanin Gajana’s is underway with dubbing and editing taking place simultaneously, he said.
Jyothika was last seen in the 2020 legal drama Ponmagal Vandhal produced by her husband-actor Suriya under 2D Entertainment.
