But reports say the very talented Manju has already decided on a project and in that one she would be playing the wife of veteran actor/director Joy Mathew!
Now this comes as a surprise to all, because many were expecting Manju to do a full on mass entertainer next, but this choice of hers suggests a more dramatic flick with more substance. Yes folks, our very own Manju chechi is not shying away from the richer, more deep characters..
In fact, Manju, upon seeing the warm reception her comeback film got, had said, “I believe that as an actor I have an obligation to do roles that would not only entertain but benefit society in some way.”
Way to stick to your promise, Manju!
Joy Mathew, apparently, is still scripting the film and he says he is very excited to work with Manju, who he has never met before, but he does refer to her as “one of the most talented actresses in Malayalam cinema right now.”
Aneesh Anwar, who directed the film Zachariyayude Garbhinikal, is the man they are trying to rope in for this film, to stand at the helm. But sources say, Anwar has neither accepted nor declined the offer yet.
Now about the film itself, don’t worry it’s not going to be an esoteric, artsy project.. no. This one is reported to be an engaging, nail biting thriller!
Joy Mathew supposedly plays an investigative officer who is under suspension most of the time. Manju plays his spouse who eventually gets herself trapped in a dangerous situation and the plot will shift into top gear from there.
Can’t wait to get more details on this one?
