With the recently released trailer of her upcoming film ‘Raatchasi’, in which she is playing a teacher, bringing her the sobriquet ‘Lady Samuthirakani’, Jyothika has spoken about it at a press meet in Chennai on Tuesday.
She told reporters: “I don’t have a Twitter account but through my husband Suriya’s page, I saw that some people have called me Lady Samuthirakani and they also said Raatchasi is the next ‘Saattai’.
Yes, the message dealt in films like ‘Saattai’, ‘Pallikoodam’, and ‘Raatchasi’ is common but the topic is very important to our society so it doesn’t matter even if a hundred films are made with the same theme.”
She said further: “There are many big budget commercial films with same stories where the hero romances multiple heroines and does the same stunt but no one dares talk about such films.”
“Students in Government schools don’t have the platform to enrich themselves to face NEET exams. We have talked about such issues and what we can do to create awareness in Raatchasi”, Jyothika said and added: “I voluntarily approached Dream Warrior Pictures to produce this films because many content driven small films which released under their banner went on to become hits.”
