Manju Warrier to make her Tamil debut with this superhit director!
Post her much talked about comeback, Manju Warrier has been getting some great offers. She is the go-to-choice for female oriented movies and now she is all set to make a mark in the Tamil film industry. Director Arivazhagan, a former assistant to Shankar, has approached Manju for his next, which is reportedly an action thriller.
Arivazhagan is known for his films like Eeram, Vallinam, Aarathu Sinam (remake of Memories) and the recently released superhit movie Kuttram 23. His next movie will be a woman centric action thriller and he is hopeful of getting Manju on board for the film. The busy actress is currently busy with multiple projects and she is working out on her dates for Arivazhagan’s movie.
In a recent interview, the director opened up on why he chose to cast Manju as the female protagonist. Apparently, he wanted someone who can pull off bold characters and it’s a performance oriented one. Arivazhagan has watched most of Manju’s films and he beleives she has the capability to do justice to his script.
Manju has been convinced and she is expected to sign the dotted lines very soon. More details regarding the other cast members will be finalized once Manju allots her dates. SS Thaman will be handling the music department and Bhaskar will be cranking the camera.
Manju Warrier meanwhile has a number of projects lined up. She has completed shooting for debutant Phantom Praveen’s Udhaharanam Sujatha and B Unnikrishnan-Mohanlal team’s Villain. She is currently working on IDI fame Sajid Yahiya’s Mohanlal, which stars Indrajith as the male lead. Another biggie in her kitty is the upcoming fantasy drama Odiyan in which she will be sharing screen space with the likes of Mohanlal and Prakash Raj.
