Ansuree replaces Mamta Mohandas in Jayaram’s Daivame Kaithozham K Kumarakanam
Salim Kumar’s upcoming directorial Jayaram has already gone on floors. The movie unlike Salim Kumar’s previous films is a fun filled family entertainer. Interestingly titled as Daivame Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam, the movie was supposed to have Mamta Mohandas as the female lead.
However, the actress has now opted out due to some unknown reasons. Promising young actress Anusree has been roped in to replace Mamta. She is also playing one of the female leads in Pranav Mohanlal’s Aadhi. This is her first film with Jayaram and it will be interesting to see their on-screen chemistry. Sreenivasan, Salim Kumar and Nedumudi Venu are also playing substantial roles in the movie.
This is Salim Kumar’s third directorial after the critically acclaimed Compartment and Karutha Joothan. Salim Kumar’s story for the latter, which discussed about the Jewish history of Kerala, won him a Kerala State Award last year.
Daivame Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam with Jayaram will be his first attempt in making a mainstream commercial film as both his previous films were offbeat ones. This upcoming movie is being jointly produced by Alwin Antony of Ananya Films and Dr Zachariah Thomas of United Global Media (UGM) Entertainment.
