Here’s why Magalir Mattum star Jyothika walked out of Vijay 61

Jyothika has revealed the real reason why she opted out of Atlee’s much-anticipated entertainer Vijay 61. The reason had nothing to do with her husband Suriya or her family.

Veteran actor Jyothika has revealed why she had to walk out of director Atlee’s much-anticipated entertainer Vijay 61, which marks 100th venture of prominent production house Sri Thenandal Films.

“Suriya was not the reason I walked out of the project. Neither did my family stop me. One doesn’t walk out of a film at the last minute due to external pressure. I had a certain issue which was later settled amicably. But, I feel it shouldn’t be discussed. People who tweet various rumours on social media should think before leveling baseless allegations,” said Jyothika in a recent interaction.

Jyothika is currently shooting for director Bala’s Naachiyaar where she shares screen space with composer-turned-actor GV Prakash. She is also awaiting the release of her second women-centric film Magalir Mattum directed by Bramma of national award-winning drama Kuttram Kadithal fame.

Jyothika plays Prabhavathy, a documentary filmmaker in Magalir Mattum, whose audio composed by Ghibran is all set to be launched on Monday. The movie also features yesteryear actors Urvashi, Bhanupriya and Saranya Ponvannan in important roles. Magalir Mattum is set to hit screens on May 12 worldwide.
