Remember director J S Nandhini, one of the few women directors in Kollywood, who made Thiru Thiru Thuru Thuru with Ajmal in the lead?
She is now eyeing a return, but this time with a thriller, unlike her debut venture which was a comedy.
If sources are to be believed, the director has gotten down to work on the movie and plans to release it towards the end of 2013.
An announcement on the cast and crew and title is expected soon.
Jayam Ravi’s Aadhi Bhagwan, directed by Ameer, a much-delayed project, may hit theatres on February 22.

He has come up with a poster now showing the film's hero Mirchi Siva and Vasundhara Kashyap in a pose similar to the one by Leonardo di Caprio and Kate Winslet in the Hollywood epic Titanic.
Ajith and Taapse Pannu are busy shooting for Vishnuvardhan's untitled project. According to sources, Taapsee was initially nervous about shooting with a big star like Ajith.
But the gentleman that he is, Ajith made Taapsee feel comfortable on the sets and showed her how to go about things. She is now said to be enjoying working with him.
The buzz is that the cast and crew are gearing up to shoot some important sequences in Dubai as the director mentioned it on his Tweet.
