Manjima Mohan to play the female lead in Nivin Pauly’s Mikhael
Nivin Pauly’s new film, Mikhael, with director Haneef Adeni went on floors last day in Ernakulam with a customary pooja and switch on ceremony. Anto Joseph is producing the movie under his banner Anto Joseph Film Company. The movie touted to be a family thriller also has Unni Mukundan in a prominent role. Latest addition to the cast is Manjima Mohan.
After making her debut as a lead actress with Nivin Pauly’s Oru Vadakkan Selfie, Manjima forayed to other South industries and soon became busy there. Manjima is making her comeback to her home turf with two back to back projects. Apart from Mikhael, the actress also has ‘Zam Zam’, which is the official remake of the widely-acclaimed Hindi film, Queen.
Mikhael has high expectations among the audience. Haneef Adeni has delivered huge hits with his first two outings – The Great Father and Abrahaminte Santhathikal (writer), and hence will be trying to continue the successful run. Rated as one of the most stylish filmmakers in Malayalam cinema at present, Haneef has got his hero Nivin to sport a trendy new look for Mikhael. JD Chakravarthy, Siddique, Renji Panciker, Ashokan, Shanthi Krishna, Kalabhavan Shajon and KPAC Lalitha are also part of the cast.
