Fans of real life couple Suriya and Jyothika have been waiting to see them together in a film. And looks their wish is about to be granted. As per our sources in Kollywood, the two have been looking for a good script since quite some time but doing that very casually since Suriya was busy with his projects and Jyothika was happy being away from the arc lights.
However, the two have now put their hunt in first gear and looking for a film that will give both of them equal opportunity to perform. Talking exclusively to India.com, the source revealed, “Suriya and Jyothika have now spread the word that they want to be seen in a film sooner than later. They have been planning about an onscreen reunion and feel now is the perfect time.”
Talking about the kind of films Suriya and Jyothika are keen on doing, the source shared, “They are clear about what they want. While they have no set notion about the subject of the film, the couple wants equally strong characters for both the male and female cast of the film. So filmmakers approaching them have to really have a strong script in hands to convince the couple.” ALSO READ: Thala Ajith’s Vivegam To Hit Theatres In Hindi Soon – Exclusive
Well, that just makes sense. It can be recalled that during the promotional events of her upcoming release Magalir Mattum, Jyothika had said that directors should give women characters some dignity in movies. She called out to filmmakers all over India to offer intelligent characters to women. It is only fair that she is sticking to her word and now looking for a project that gives her an equal footing with her superstar husband Suriya.
It is also heartening to see that Suriya, who also has a guest appearance in Magalir Mattum, is also supporting her decision and opinion. The film about women empowerment is set for a September 15, 2017 release. Suriya on the other hand is filming for Thaana Serndha Kootam. The couple was last seen together in romantic film Sillunu Oru Kaadha in 2006.
