The teaser of Jyothika’s upcoming film ‘Magalir Mattum’ was released by her husband Suriya and has taken everyone by surprise. From the teaser it seemed that it’s a sweet film about the struggles of women on a normal day to day life. The film stars Jyothika, Bhanupriya, Urvashi and Saranya Ponvannan in the lead roles. The teaser opens with a group of middle-aged women, including Jyothika mulling over the number of ‘dosas’ they made for their family members in the last five years. During their conversation, they realise that either their inordinate amount of contribution to their families has been underrated or worse, has gone unnoticed. The film seems to be a story of a team of women, who take on the man’s world. Also Read - Oscar-Nominated Soorarai Pottru Starring Suriya - Here's How And Where To Watch The Tamil Film
The makers have created a campaign — Magalir Mattum Dosa with Love — around the question and have challenged several celebrities on social media to make dosa for their loved ones. Actor Suriya, who has produced Magalir Mattum, was the first to accept the challenge. He made dosa for his wife Jyothika and shared the picture on his Twitter page. Other celebrities to accept the challenge were actor Ashok Selvan, composer Ghibran and Arya among others. Also Read - Soorarai Pottru Starring Suriya Goes Into Oscar Race 2021

Jyothika is not ready to play a mere arm candy in the films anymore. She had taken a professional sabbatical after her marriage to Suriya and made a solid comeback with 2015 film 36 Vayadhinile, a remake of Malayalam film ‘How Old Are You?’ And her upcoming project is also a women-centric film, in which she plays the role of a documentary filmmaker, spearheading the cause of women.
