The actress is currently shooting a multi-lingual titled Shero, which is directed by Sreejith Vijayan
Sunny Leone has been signing a lot of films with South directors of late. The actress, who is currently shooting for the Malayalam film Shero, has also been roped in for R Radhakrishnan’s Bollywood movie Patta, which has cricketer S Sreesanth in the lead.
The upcoming movie, which has Sreesanth playing the role of a CBI officer, is touted to be an investigative thriller and is scripted and helmed by Radhakrishnan. Talking to Kochi Times, the filmmaker said that Sunny plays Anjali, a “powerful character” in the film and that the actress is currently prepping for the role in the movie that also has Gujarati actor Bimal Trivedi.
Meanwhile, Sunny resumed the shoot of Sreejith Vijayan’s Shero in Kerala. The film’s content reportedly impressed the actress to take up the role in the Malayalam film, which is a psychological thriller. The makers had released the poster of the movie featuring Sunny during the launch of the movie in Kochi a few months ago.
Shero has her playing the role of Sarah Mike and the movie, which is also scripted by Kuttanadan Marpappa fame Sreejith, will be released in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The movie was reportedly conceived keeping in mind the COVID-19 restrictions. Its shoot was delayed due to the Kerala government denying permission for outdoor shoots since April due to the spike in COVID cases in the State.
The actress is also part of Santosh Nair’s Rangeela, for which she had shot a few portions in Goa two years ago. The movie was set to mark her Mollywood debut.
