Actor Simbu is all set for an interesting cameo in the film and he will be seen as himself. The original had Ayushmann Khuranna playing the role. The actor recently completed shooting for the cameo with Jyothika in an FM Station set. The film marks their fourth-time collaboration after Manmathan, Saravana and Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
Kaatrin Mozhi will see Jyothika essay the role of an ambitious homemaker whose ordinary life changes when she unexpectedly lands a job as late-night RJ. The original was a massive hit for its beautiful treatment of relationships and empathetic characters.
The film also stars Vidhaarth, Lakshmi Manchu and Kumaravel in crucial roles. While Vidhaarth will be seen playing Jyothika’s husband and will reprise Manav Kaul’s role in the remake, Lakshmi will reprise Neha Dhupia’s role from the original.
Actress Lakshmi Manchu showered her praises for Jyothika, saying her eyes speak volumes. The actress tweeted, “Working w #jyothika… woah!! What a talent. Always been a huge fan now even more. Her eyes speak volumes and the camera just loves her #kaatrinmozhi @Suriya_offl”
Produced by Dhananjayan Govind’s BOFTA Media Works, in association with Creative Entertainers. National award-winning editor KL Praveen and cinematographer Mahesh Muthusamy have been roped in for the remake. The film marks the debut of AR Rahman’s nephew AH Kaashif as a composer who has composed several independent music albums.
Jyothika, who made a terrific comeback to acting after an eight-year-long hiatus with 36 Vayadhinile, has been making some interesting career moves. She was last seen as a badass cop in Bala’s Naachiyaar. She recently wrapped Mani Ratnam’s multi-starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam (CCV), which went on the floors earlier this year. The project which is a multi-starrer marks Ratnam’s first-time collaboration with actors such as Jyothika, Arun Vijay, Simbu and Vijay Sethupathi.
