STR and Jyotika shared screen space for the first time with the movie Manmadan. It was followed by Saravana in 2006. Now the duo is working together after 12 years. STR recently shot for Kaatrin Mozhi, remake of the Vidya Balan starrer Tumhari Sulu. The actor is making a special appearance in the film. His role is said to be an important one to the narrative. Though it in not clear what it is, it could be similar to what Ayushmann Khurana played in the original.
Kaatrin Mozhi which borrows its name from the title track of the hit film Mozhi, is the second outing of director Radhamohan and Jyotika. The two of them had done Mozhi together, which was a sensitive story of a young woman who could neither talk nor hear. The film, which also starred Prithviraj and Prakashraj was Jyotika’s last Tamil release before she took a sabbatical to start a family with her actor-husband Suriya. She made an impressive comeback in 2015 with the film 16 Vayadhinile, remake of the Malayalam film How Old Are You, which had Manju Warrier in the lead.
Kaatrin Mozhi which is the second production of Creative Entertainers, also stars Lakshmi Manchu, Vidharth, MS Bhaskar and Manobala in crucial roles. Vidharth will be stepping into Manav Kaul’s role from the original. Music for the film is by AH Kaashif.
