Reports say that Jyothika, the comeback actress in Kollywood, has been roped in to play a significant woman-centric character in choreographer-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence’s upcoming film titled as Naaga.
Jyothika got married to Suriya at the height of her career as an actress more than 8 years back. Now the mother of two and still looking stunning enough to play lead roles, the actress made a successful comeback to films after 8 years with Rosshan Andrews’ 36 Vayadhinile (Tamil remake of the Malayalama super-hit How Old Are You) which released in May this year. Jyothika’s performance was flawless and was lauded by critics.
Soon after the film’s success, Jyothika had said that she would continue to take up film offers provided the scripts offered to her were novel and challenging.
Raghava, who announced the launch of his two back-to-back films in Motta Siva Ketta Siva and Naaga, is said to have narrated the script of Naaga to Jyothik and won her consent to star in the film which reportedly has the ‘snake sentiment’ as the crux of its script.
Vendhar Movies is producing Naaga which is likely to be made as a 3-part sequel.
