Nisha Agarwal, the younger sister of Kajal Agarwal, is definitely here to stick it out in Malayalam cinema.
It was reported a few weeks earlier that she would be making her debut in Mollywood, through the Johnny Antony movie Bhaiyya Bhaiyya, opposite Kunchacko Boban. Now it seems the actress has landed another role in quick succession – the female lead opposite Indrajith in the upcoming comedy entertainer Cousins, to be directed by Vaishakh.
That’s not the interesting part though. This part was actually meant to be Bhavana’s, but in the end, the makers of the film decided that since the story takes place at the Kerala – Bangalore border, they needed someone who looked distinctly ‘non – Malayali’.
Well, Bhavana’s loss is Nisha’s gain.
Cousins is based around the characters of four cousins to be played by Kunchacko Boban, Indrajith, Suraj Venjaaramoodu and Jojo George. The stunning young starlet Vedhika will play the female role that has been paired with Kunchacko Boban.
Nedumudi Venu and Kalabhavan Shajon too will play important roles in this flick. The baddie here will be none other than Pradeep Rawat.
Pradeep Illampilly is the cinematographer and Sethu is the man who has penned the script. The production, which will launch on August 10, will have filming based mainly at locations like Athirapally, Kodaikkanal, Pollachi, Bangalore and Kochi.
Looks like more and more lovely young diva’s are trying their luck in Mollywood. Let’s hope this trend lasts a while and it plays out well for them, so that they can continue to grace the screens for the Malayali audiences for the foreseeable future…
