Manju Warrier joins Nivin Pauly in Padavettu!
Shoot for Nivin Pauly starrrer ‘Padavettu’ was been progressing for the last couple of months in and around Kannur. Debutant Liju Krishna is directing the film. Actor Sunny Wayne is making his feature film production debut by funding this film. Aditi Balan, who shot to fame with ‘Aruvi’, is making her Malayalam debut by playing the female lead.
Last day, a surprise announcement was made by the makers about Manju Warrier joining the cast. Sunny Wayne broke the news officially by sharing a photo taken with Manju and Nivin Pauly. It must be noted that Sunny and Manju had recently acted together in a horror flick titled ‘Chathur Mukham’. So they both share a great rapport off screen as well, which must have helped Sunny to get her on board for ‘Padavettu’.
This is also Manju’s first film with Nivin and it will be interesting to see what kind of role she essays in the film. ‘Padavettu’ is said to be a rustic entertainer set in Kannur. Director Liju Krishna himself has scripted the film. He had earlier assured that the film will have Nivin Pauly in a kind of role that he has not done before. It is said to be a challenging role and the audience can expect to see a different side of the actor.
On the film’s technical front, Deepak D Menon wields camera and edits are being done by Shefeek Muhammed Ali. Govind Vasantha is handling the music department.
