National Award-winning actress Keerthy Suresh will be seen flaunting her musical skills in her upcoming films Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and Sarakaru Vaari Paata. The actress, who is also a trained violinist, learnt to play veena for the big-budget Malayalam film that has Mohanlal in the lead and is directed by Priyadarshan. 

The team recently unveiled the poster of her character Aarcha, playing a violin from the period film set in the 16th century. Her character’s romance with Kunjali Marakkar IV’s aide Chinali is a pivotal point in the film, which is set to hit theatres on December 2. Chinali’s role is played by Thai actor Jay J Jakkrit. 

The actress, who is trained in classical music, took up lessons in veena to play the character, as revealed by the film’s director Priyadarshan. Incidentally, Keerthy will also be seen playing violin in her upcoming Telugu movie Sarakaru Vaari Paata, which has Mahesh Babu in the lead. The movie is set for an April 2022 release. 

Keerthy, meanwhile, will be returning to Mollywood with Manu G Raghav’s Vaashi, which has Tovino Thomas as the male protagonist. This will be her first Malayalam film after Marakkar that will have her in a full-fledged role. The movie, which is produced by her father G Sureshkumar, is set to go on floors soon in Kerala. 

The actress, who was recently seen in Rajinikanth’s Annaatthe, also has Good Luck Sakhi, Saani Kaayidham and Dasara set for release.
