Soumya has previously acted in a couple of films like David and Goliath and Ormayundo Ee Mukham. Her TV show Film Lounge is also very popular among the Malayali cinephiles.
Kunchacko Boban’s next release will be Diwanjimoola Grand Prix, directed by Anil Radhakrishna Menon. In this upcoming movie, the actor is reprising his character of Sajan Joseph IAS from Lohithadas’ 2003 film Kasthuriman. Chackochan, as he is fondly called, is also playing a brief but prominent role in Abrid Shine’s Poomaram, which stars Kalidas Jayaram in the lead. Ramesh Pisharody’s directorial debut Panchavarna Thathaa is his other film in the pipeline.
