Poornima Indrajith eyes a grand comeback to acting
Poornima Indrajith has been on a break from movies for some time now. Ever since getting married to Indrajith, Poornima stayed away from cinema. However, she still hogged the limelight with TV anchoring and later by taking up fashion designing. Now it seems like Poornima is all set for a big comeback to where she actually belongs. She has signed for two real biggies – ‘Virus’ and ‘Thuramukham’. Interestingly, both these films also stars her husband, Indrajith.
While shoot for Aashiq Abu’s ‘Virus’ has already been completed, ‘Thuramukham’ directed by Rajeev Ravi, is yet to go on floors. ‘Virus’, based on the Nipah outbreak, has one of the biggest star cast that Malayalam cinema has ever seen. Tovino Thomas, Asif Ali, Kunchacko Boban, Parvathy, Rima Kallingal, Soubin Shahir, Dileesh Pothan, Rahman, Remya Nambeeshan, Madonna Sebastian, Revathy and Joju George are also part of the movie.
‘Thuramukham’ scripted by Gopan Chidambaram is based on the historic protests against the inhuman ‘chappa’ system, that existed in Cochin harbour during the 50s, wherein copper coins were thrown to waiting workers in a primitive ‘work guarantee’ scheme, which had resulted in police firing and martyrdom of three labourers in Mattancherry. Poornima will be starring alongside actors like Nivin Pauly, Biju Menon and Nimisha Sajayan.
