Manju Warrier is definitely the queen of the mountain in Mollywood, but her return to the world of cinema with her smash hit flick How Old Are You, and the crazy attention the movie and she got seems to have crossed state and language barriers!
Yes, there were rumours which spread like wildfire that she would be starring opposite Kollywood star Suriya in one of his upcoming ventures to be directed by Vikram Kumar of Tollywood hit Manam fame. Though initially no one neither denied or confirmed this, now we have word from the people concerned.
Vikram Kumar has denied the rumour that Manju has been cast opposite Suriya but he has not denied the possibility that it may happen still. Confused? Well, the director says only Suriya has been confirmed as the lead star so far and the rest of the cast is yet to be decided upon.
But he did say one thing though – the hit maker stated outright that he was a fan of Manju Warrier and that she is, without a doubt, one of the finest actresses of this generation in Indian cinema!
Wow! Now that’s a compliment.. and one rightfully earned, it has to be said. Vikram also added that he would love to cast her in his film provided the role carried enough weight for her.
Well, the Tamil cinema world may still not be a reality for Manju, but the Malayali audiences will have a treat on their hands soon enough as the Manju Warrier – Mohanlal project to be directed by Sathyan Anthikkad was recently officially announced.
For over a decade and a half, the fans have been waiting for the Universal Star and the actress, who some refer to as the female Mohanlal in terms of her acting abilities, to pair up onscreen and recreate some of that magic which we saw in movies like Aaram Thamburan and Kanmadam.
Good times ahead folks, no doubt about it…
