Actress Jyothika, who made a comeback to acting with "36 Vayadhinile" in 2015, is ready for her next project. Jyothika, who happens to be the wife of Suriya, will soon start work on her new movie, which is being written and directed by Brahmaa of "Kuttram Kadithal" fame.

Suriya announced the news on Twitter and posted, "Dear all!Jo is starting her next,with a great cast & crew today! Official announcement soon ! As always, need your wishes!! #Excitedhusband.[sic]"

The film will also star yesteryear actress Bhanupriya in an important role, while Urvashi and Saranya Ponvannan have also been signed up in the project. While it was reported earlier that Suriya and Jyothika would star in the film, it has been confirmed now that only she would be a part of it.

As part of her preparation for the role, Jyothika is said to have attended a 20-day workshop. With the as-yet-untitled movie, the actress explores a theme that's different from the female-centric "36 Vayadhinile."

The director of the film had revealed recently that the movie is for all age groups. The upcoming movie is being produced by Suriya himself under his home banner of 2D Entertainment.

Suriya busy with 'S3'
Meanwhile, Suriya is also occupied with his prestigious "S3" aka "Singam 3." The team is currently busy filming some important portions in Vizag. The film unit will soon return to Chennai before starting its next schedule in Malaysia on August 5.

"S3" is the third instalment in the "Singam" franchise. The movie is written and directed by Hari. Anushka Shetty and Shruti Haasan are playing the female lead roles in the flick, which is most likely to hit the screens on Diwali.
