After the superhit coming-of-age entertainer Super Sharanya, Anaswara Rajan and Arjun Ashokan will be sharing screen space again in debutant Nikhil Murali’s movie titled Pranaya Vilasam.
The film, which will be co-produced by Charlie and ABCD director Martin Prakkat, went on floors recently in Kannur and is expected to be another romcom with the duo. Further details on the project are yet to be announced.
Anaswara, meanwhile, is on a high recently with her previous films Super Sharanya being a commercial hit and her movie Vaanku, earning its filmmaker Kavya Prakash the National Film Award for the Best Debutant Director. The young actress’ next film Mike is set to hit theatres on August 19.
Mike, which is directed by debutant Vishnu Sivaprasad, also marks Bollywood actor John Abraham’s debut Malayalam production venture and has newcomer Ranjith Sajeev as its male lead. Anaswara plays Sara in the film, which reportedly revolves around her character who goes through a gender identity crisis. The film’s trailer was released recently and promises to be a socially-relevant, coming-of-age drama that has Anaswara in a tomboyish avatar.
The movie, which also has Rohini, Jinu Joseph and Akshay Radhakrishnan, is scripted by Aashiq Akhbar Ali with Hridayam’s music director Hesham Abdul Wahab composing its tunes.
Meanwhile, Arjun, who was last seen in a minor role in Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Kaduva, has a host of projects lined up for release including Rajeev Ravi’s Thuramukham and debutant director Jithu Madhavan’s horror-comedy Romanchan, which revolves around a group of friends in Bengaluru. The latter is a film set in 2007 and also has Soubin Shahir in the lead.
Arjun has wrapped up shooting for Trishanku, which also stars Anna Ben, and is currently shooting for Ajagajantharam director Tinu Pappachan’s untitled thriller, which also has Kunchacko Boban and Antony Varghese as part of the cast. The film, scripted by Joy Mathew, has the three actors playing rural youth who get entangled in an issue.
