Keerthy Suresh and Tovino Thomas

Almost nine years after actor-turned-filmmaker Vishnu G Raghav had first planned to direct Tovino Thomas, the duo are set to collaborate for Vaashi. The movie, which has Keerthy Suresh playing the female protagonist, went on floors today in Thiruvananthapuram.

The pooja function of the film, which is produced by Keerthy’s father G Sureshkumar under the banner of Revathy Kalamandir, was attended by Menaka Suresh, Sreelakshmi, Anu Mohan and others. The lead duo of Keerthy and Tovino are expected to join the team soon.

Vishnu and Tovino had initially planned to collaborate for a short film almost nine years ago, but the plans didn’t materialise as the latter was offered a role in a movie at that time. Vishnu had been working on the script for the film for the better part of the past decade and had finalised its current version along with both actors last year.

This would mark the first time Keerthy and Tovino are teaming up. Keerthy, who will next be seen in Mohanlal’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, will sort of also be marking her comeback in a lead role in Malayalam after a gap of several years with Vaashi. While the makers have kept the storyline and the characters of the two actors under wraps, Vishnu has revealed that both of them will have equal prominence.

Tovino, who had played a cameo role in Dulquer Salmaan’s Kurup recently, is also shooting for Khalid Rahman’s Thallumala and had most recently finished filming actor-director Vineeth Kumar’s mystery drama in Bengaluru. The actor’s next release will be Minnal Murali, which will drop on Netflix on Christmas eve.
