Gouri Kishan, best known for playing Trisha’s childhood self in the Tamil movie 96, is set to make her Malayalam debut in Anugraheethan Antony. The actress will be featured opposite Sunny Wayne in the movie, says a ToI report.
Directed by cinematographer turned director C Prem Kumar, 96, starring Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha released in October and went on to become a critical and commercial hit. A love story between the lead characters Ram and Jaanu, the movie contains portions where the story was set during their school days. And Gouri Kishan’s portrayal of the school-going Jaanu was much appreciated.
Gouri Kishan, while talking about her new movie, said: “There is a lot of thought that has gone into this movie’s script. It is very interesting and I loved it. It has emotions, fantasy and much more. Moreover, I’d love to work with Sunny sir, who is no conventional actor and keeps experimenting with his roles and style. I loved his performance in Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi.” A native of Vaikom, Kottayam, the actress is currently pursuing her graduation in Bengaluru.
Sunny Wayne said that the ‘thread’ of the movie is highly exciting. “It is a movie that has great connection with real life. There is an Antony in everyone. I am sure the movie will touch viewers as it has a deep mystery as well as plenty of emotions in it.” He also mentioned that a dog plays an important part in the story. “It is being trained for the past three months and the relationship between the dog and Antony is important in the movie.”
Anugraheethan Antony marks the directorial debut of Prince Joy. The movie also features Siddique and Suraj Venjaramoodu. Scheduled to be shot around Thodupuzha and Perumbavoor, the movie will go on floors by mid-December.
