After the stupendous success of Ko, Jiiva has become red hot in the market. Everybody wants to sign him and is offering him record amounts as salary.

But Jiiva the smart guy is only looking at the potential of the script and the director. He has signed two films Mysskin's Mugamudi for UTV and Gautham Menon's film for Ko producers RS Infotainment.

Both the films will start around the same time in August.  In Mysskin's film Jiiva will play Tamil cinemas first superhero, while Gautham Menon's is a romantic thriller.

This means Jiiva works with Kollywood's super directors back to back, which is sure to make him go up the ladder. His strategy is clear, go for good dependable scripts with big name directors who are on the look out for a star.

Please note Mysskin had approached Suriya, Arya and Vishal for Mugamudi title role before zeroing in on Jiiva.

Similarly Gautham Menon film was written keeping STR in mind, but due to quirk of fate Jiiva gets to do it.
