Anu is a happy woman as she has just been signed on for three plum projects. She will play the lead in a period film based on the life of the famous Malayalam poet, Kunjiraman Nair. Directed by debutant P. Balachandran, an acclaimed script writer who has penned many hit movies and with Prakash playing the male lead, expectations are good. Anu will play the part of Thankamani, a folk singer who was a major influence in the poet’s life. The talented actress will also portray Ragini in Akam, which is drawn from a Malayalam novel of the same name. Akam takes a look at the power dynamics between a man and a woman.
Lastly, she is to do an entirely female oriented film called Chayilyam directed by Manoj Kana. The story revolves around a woman who fights destiny by struggling to preserve her identity and resist the process of incarnation. This intriguing film will be played out against the ritualistic art of Theyyam from North Malabar. Kudos to Anu, her star seems to be on the ascent!
