Anjali Menon’s next will have Prithviraj, Nazriya Nazim and Parvathy in the lead roles
Anjali Menon, one of the most promising filmmakers around, was on a break after giving the sensational blockbuster Bangalore Days in 2015. She was away from all the limelight for a while before working on a script, a love story, with Dulquer Salmaan in the lead, but unfortunately the project could not materialize.
Now, the filmmaker is busy with the pre-production works of her next directorial which reportedly stars Prithviraj, Nazriya Nazim and Parvathy in the lead roles. Prithviraj has already been confirmed as the makers had even released a casting call for teeange boys to play his younger part. The casting of Parvathy and Nazriya comes a pleasant surprise.
Both the actresses have previously worked with Anjali Menon in Bangalore Days. Prithviraj has also done a cameo role in the director’s debut film Manjadikuru. More details regarding the genre or technical crew of the upcoming movie is not yet known. It is being produced by Rejaputhra Visual Media in association with Little Films India.
Anjali has proven her mettle, both as a filmmaker and a scenarist with her works like Manjadikuru, Ustad Hotel and Bangalore Days. While Manjadikuru bagged several accolades at the regional and international level, Ustad Hotel, written by Anjali, won a couple of National awards – for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment and best dialogues. Bangalore Days is one of the biggest grossers in Malayalam cinema history.
Obviously, expectations will be massive for Anjali Menon’s next movie. An official word regarding when the movie will actually go on floors is still awaited.
