I’ve watched every Vidya film, and Tumhari Sulu, in my opinion, is her most lovable work. I feel honored to be stepping into her shoes. Kudos to the producers and to Suresh (Triveni) for making such a lively, honest, real and feel-good film!”
The film’s director Radha Mohan was also quoted in the media statement, he said “I am excited to be directing such an appreciated film like Tumhari Sulu, and with Jyotika, with whom we had a great association in Mozhi.
