Actor Jyotika, who had two releases so far this year, has joined hands with actors Sasikumar and Samuthirakani for a yet-untitled Tamil rural drama which was officially launched on Friday. To be directed by R. Saravanan, the film will see Jyotika share screen space with Sasikumar and Samuthirakani for the first time.
The film, which will have music by D. Imman, was launched in the presence of actor Suriya, who will be bankrolling the project under his home banner 2D Entertainment. The regular shooting will commence from December and the film will be predominantly shot in Pudhukottai and Tanjore.
Meanwhile, Jyotika currently awaits the release of her films Thambi and Pon Magal Vandhal.

Thambi marks the maiden on-screen collaboration of Jyotika and her brother-in-law Karthi. In the film, both will be seen playing siblings.
“Thrilled to share screen space with Anni (sis-in-law) for the first time. Looking forward to work with Jeethu Joseph sir. Sathyaraj sir brings more strength to us. With all your blessings shoot begins today,” Karthi had tweet when the project went on the floors.
