Poornima Indrajith all set to make her comeback with Virus
As we had reported earlier, Aashiq film is making a night based on last year’s Nipah outbreak in Kerala. The movie titled ‘Virus’ has a huge star cast, probably the biggest in Malayalam cinema after ‘Twenty 20’. Last day, when the cast was officially announced, one name that grabbed everyone’s attention was Poornima Indrajith. The actress-turned-fashion designer has been on a break from cinema for over a decade. The last film she acted in was the critically acclaimed Kannada film, ‘Gulabi Talkies’.
Since Poornima has constantly been in the limelight with her various TV shows and fashion designing, her absence was not really felt. It is not yet known what role she will be playing in ‘Virus’, which also has her husband Indrajith Sukumaran in a key role. The cast also includes Tovino, Asif Ali, Kunchacko Boban, Parvathy, Rima Kallingal, Soubin Shahir, Dileesh Pothan, Rahman, Indrans, Remya Nambeeshan, Madonna Sebastian, Sharafudheen, Sreenath Bhasi, Revathy, Joju George, Senthil Krishna, Basil Joseph, Sudeesh and Vettukili Prakash.
‘Virus’ is scripted jointly by Muhsin Parari of ‘KL 10 Pathu’ fame and Suhas-Sharfu, the writers of ‘Varathan’. The movie also has a good technical crew, which includes National award winning cinematographer Rajeev Ravi, music director Sushin Shyam and editor Saiju Sreedharan.
Virus is produced by Aashiq Abu and Rima Kallingal under the banner of OPM. The movie will be hitting screens during the Vishu season on April 11.
