It has been from the beginning of the film era actors and actresses strive to cop as ideal as the role demands. We have seen people reducing weight, cutting hair etc to become apt for the role. The latest on this list is Mollywoods own actress Manju Warrier who is reportedly to reduce her weight for her latest movie Jo and the Boy. As the reports says, Manju is about to portray the role of a 20 year old girl in the movie. Stunned??
Of course we should be. Because a versatile actress like Manju Warrier to do a twenty year old girl at her thirties is not something ordinary. If it comes out in light, it would be something spectacular. For instance we have seen forty year old Aamir Khan as a 20 year old boy in Rajkumar Hirani’s all time blockbuster 3 Idiots.
Jo and the boy is a movie from the team of 2013’s surprise hit Philiphs and the Monkeypen with Master Sanoop in the lead. The movie was directed by the duo of Shanil Muhammed and Rojin Thomas. The movie grabbed both critical acclamation and commercial success. It also won three state awards of that year. They were awarded in the categories like Best Children’s Film, Best Children’s Film Director and Best Child Artist. This motion picture from the same team, but will be directed by Rojin Thomas alone. The movie has already started shooting months before and now is joining Manju Warrier to the league.
For Jo and the boy Manju is about to reduce 10 kilo, which is not an easy task. As an actress unparalleled Manju will be able to deliver her role in full efficiency we hope. Even for Manju, this second innings is so important and hence is very selective. Manju after a long break returned to Mollywood with a dashing hit How Old Are You and again delivered a hit with Mohanlal and Sathyan Anthikad in Ennum Eppozhum. Her third movie about to release with Rima Kallingal named Rani Padmini directed by Aashiq Abu. As of now, more news about this is yet not out to the desk.Wait for more.
