Transgender model Anjali Ameer is Mammootty’s heroine in Peranbu
Even though we live in a forward society with a literacy rate of over 90%, transgender people still face discrimination in our society for their choices. The issue is being addressed very seriously by many LGBT activists to eradicate the discrimination and for their equal rights.
At this scenario, it is very heartening to see a superstar like Mammootty acting with a transgender model. We are talking about transgender model Anjali Ameer who will be seen as Mammootty’s heroine in the upcoming movie Pernabu.
The 21 year old Malayali model is the first transgender actress from the State, to act as a heroine in a mainstream Malayalam movie.
Recently in an interview, when quizzed about her experience working with Mammootty, she said, “It was a superb learning experience for me as a budding artist. I was literally afraid when I first saw him. But, it was very comfortable working with him since he helped me through all possible ways.”
Peranbu is directed by award winning filmmaker Ram. The movie is being made as bilingual in Tamil and Malayalam with the dubbing works currently under progress. Director Ram’s previous movie Thanga Meengal won the National award for best feature film in Tamil in the year 2013.
Mammootty is playing the character Amuthan in this movie which also stars Sarath Kumar, Kaniha and Suraj Venjaramoodu in pivotal characters. Thanga Meengal fame Baby Sadhana is playing the role of Mammootty’s daughter in the movie.
Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the music while National award winner Sreekar Prasad is the editor. The movie is produced by PL Thennappan under the banner Sri Rajalakshmi Films.
