Today, Jyothika is one of Kollywood’s leading heroines with a stellar fanbase set for her. The respect has come largely because of her choices of films in the second innings, where she chose to promote women empowerment in many ways. After working with names such as Rosshan Andrewws, Bala and Radha Mohan, the actress has now moved to new-gen directors who are pitching the right scripts to her.
At a recent event, the actress said “Right now, I am working with three debut directors for my upcoming films. They are extremely bold and focused, and don’t want to balance both commercial and award cinema. Since they are very clear with what they want, it becomes easier to work with them,” she said.
Jyothika is now shooting for her next film with S. Raj, which is bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures. The film is said to focus on a school teacher handling the politics and the issues that she faces due to the system, and bringing up her students in the right way. If things go right, the shoot will be completed by August with a plan to bring it to the screens by the end of the year. More details on this one as well as her upcoming projects are eagerly awaited.
