May 21, 2020 | 14:03 IST | CineBuzz |

Jyotika’s film Ponmagal Vandhal is all set to release on OTT platform on May 29th.

The trailer of the movie was released today and is already winning the internet. Once again we are all set to see Jyotika in a new avatar as a lawyer.

The movie is of course going to be a female-centric one.

Talking about her movie choices, Jyotika replied that cinema influences people and she should be responsible in picking them.

“I’ve been choosing films that delve into issues that are happening around me. People are always influenced by cinema, so I need to be responsible in what I choose and so, I pick such scripts. This is one such film, dealing with an issue close to my heart. I want to do films in which women are strong and are portrayed in a dignified manner. The way women are in real life, at least 80 per cent of the films don’t show them that way. Women are intelligent and multitask. So, I look for characters with intelligence in a script. I am also a mother of two kids and I need to be responsible. When we switch on the TV, I see what they are watching and what they are learning from it. I would want to set an example,” she said.

Here is the trailer of her movie:
