Jyothika, the southern actor who dominated the Tamil film industry in early 2000s and who quit after the birth of her daughter, is making a comeback with the official remake of Malayalam hit How Old Are You.(Jyothikasadanahh/facebook)
The highly anticipated Tamil remake of last year’s Malayalam hit How Old Are You has been titled 36 Vayadhinile. The film marks actress Jyothika in a comeback role after seven years.
“The film’s story revolves around a middle-aged woman. Hence, the makers have felt 36 Vayadhinile would be the apt title. Ironically, Jyothika is 36-year old,” a source from the film’s unit said.
Helmed by Roshan Andrews, who had directed the original, the film is produced by actor Suriya under his home banner 2D Entertainment.
Suriya was one among the few who chose the title.
“Suriya sir along with the director zeroed in on the title. They spent lot of time contemplating on the title,” the source said.
The film, which is slated for release in April, also features Rahman, Abhirami and Sanjay Bharati in important roles.
Suriya has already bought the remake rights of the film in other Indian languages as well.
