Manju Warrier in Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s next
Sanal Kumar Sasidharan is one of the biggest names in the parallel film space in Malayalam. So far he has directed four feature films, and all of them have won widespread acclaim. He is currently working on a new film titled ‘Kayattam’ and it has Manju Warrier in the lead role. Post her comeback, this is the first time Manju Warrier is attempting an offbeat film. So naturally, her character in ‘Kayattam’ is certain to be a performance oriented one. Shoot for the film is currently progressing in Himalayas. Niv Art Movies, a production house that has frequently collaborated with Sanal, is producing this film as well.
Meanwhile, the director’s ‘Chola’ starring Nimisha and Joju George is set to have its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.
