The movie, directed by G Prajesh Sen, has Jayasurya playing a radio jockey
The makers of Jayasurya and Manju Warrier’s Meri Awas Suno released a surprise character poster of the lady superstar on her birthday today. The motion poster had the actress sitting on the bonnet of her SUV for a video call, complete with a portable ring light and snacks.
Talking to OTTplay about her character, the film’s director G Prajesh Sen says, “Manju plays Dr Reshmi Padath, who is a social worker. She is also a good friend and guide to RJ Shankar, played by Jayasurya. Her character poster reveals that she’s an active lady, who doesn’t mind stopping her car in the middle of the road and sitting on the bonnet to do a video call. So, she’s got that attitude.”
Meri Awaaz Suno, which also has Sshivada, Sudheer Karamana and Johny Antony as part of the cast, began shooting in February this year, right after Prajesh and Jayasurya’s Vellam had released in theatres.
Ask him if it was a project that was put together during the lockdown and the director says, “We had discussed this project last year; it’s just that we got the dates quickly and that’s the reason we went on floors soon. It’s a pleasure collaborating with Manju. She’s someone who is extremely easy to work with and this is a sentiment shared not just by me, by everyone from the cast and crew.”
On Jayasurya’s character in the movie, the director says, “He plays an intellectual radio jockey, who actively involves himself in the lives of others. Jayasurya and Manju have equally prominent roles in the movie.”
In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Jayasurya had talked about working with Manju for the first time ever in the movie. “There are some people whom you have met only once during your journeys but you never forget them. Manju is someone like that. I don’t think anyone will forget her if they meet her once because, personally, I have found her to be extremely caring and full of positivity. Moreover, she’s a brilliant actress. If you give her clay and tell her what you want, she would create a sculpture out of it,” he told us.
Meanwhile, Prajesh also informs us that the team has still not decided on the release platform of Meri Awas Suno.
