Jyothika To Reprise Vidya Balan’s Role In The Tamil Remake Of ‘Tumhari Sulu’

After weeks of speculation, the makers of the Tamil version of Vidya Balan’s film Tumhari Sulu have confirmed that Jyothika will play the lead in the film. The remake will be directed by Radha Mohan, who had previously worked with Jyothika on Mozhi in 2007.

The Tamil remake rights have been bought by BOFTA Media Works India, which is currently producing Mr. Chandramouli, starring Karthik, Gautham Karthik, Regina Cassandra, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar and others, directed by Thiru.


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 Vidya film, 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!” Jyothika is quoted as saying in the press release.

The team is finalising the rest of the cast and crew, and will share details soon.

Tumhari Sulu released last year on November 17. The film is about a middle-class woman, who takes up the job of a late night radio jockey. Helmed by Suresh Triveni, the film was produced under the T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment banners. The movie also stars Manav Kaul, Neha Dhupia and renowned RJ Malishka.
