Manju Warrier to romance Mohanlal

Manju Warrier will share screen space with superstar Mohanlal yet again. The untitled film will be produced by Ashirwad Cinemas. The news was confirmed by script writer Ranjan Pramod. Pramod will pen the script and the film will be directed by Sathyan Anthikad.

The untitled film is slated to release during Christmas. “Everything has just been finalised and the film is being planned as a Christmas release,” Ranjan told The Hindu on Tuesday. “It is a challenge for any writer to pen a script to accommodate two brilliant actors like Mohanlal and Manju with such huge fan-followings.”

Ranjan informed that it was producer Antony Perumbavoor’s idea to make a film starring Mohanlal and Manju Warrier. “His production house, Aashirvad Cinemas, had an agreement to make a film with Manju, which did not materialise, and he asked me whether I would be able to write a script for her and Mohanlal,” says the Kozhikode-based writer. “I have had to postpone a film that I was planning to direct myself, but I am looking forward to this challenge.”

Personally, Manju Warrier was going through tough phase in life. She has filed for divorce from husband and actor Dileep. She made her comeback with 'How Old Are You', produced by Listin Stephen under the banner Magic Frames and was highly praised. She paired up with Mohanlal in superhit movies like ‘Aaram Thamburan’ and ‘Kanmadam’. Mohanlal also played a cameo in Manju Warrier starrer, ‘Summer In Bethlahem’.

The on-screen chemistry of the couple is always liked by the audience.
