Meera Jasmine to star in ‘Neerali’?
Reports are rife that Meera Jasmine may join the star cast of the Mohanlal starrer Neerali. The talented actor was last seen in the Malayalam movie 10 Kalpanakal in which she played the role of a cop. The film starred Anoop Menon in the lead role while Meera Jasmine had a pivotal role to play in it.
This film hit the silver screen a couple of years ago and since then she had been away from the film industry for various reasons. With Neerali, she may be staging a comeback, say sources. It may be mentioned here that there were reports that the Neerali team is scouting for a suitable heroine to play Mohanlal’s wife in it and it now looks like Meera Jasmine may bag the role. However, there is no official word on it yet.
Directed by Ajoy Varma, the film stars Mohanlal and Parvati Nair in the lead roles with Suraj Venjaramoodu, Saikumar and Dileesh Pothan also in the star cast. The film’s technical crew comprises Stephen Devassy for music, Santosh Thundiyil for cinematography and Ajoy Varma for editing.
The shooting of this film began just a few weeks ago with plans on to release it on May 4th to cash in on the summer vacation. Neerali is produced by Santhosh T. Kuruvilla, John Thomas and Mibu Jose Nettikadan under the banner Moonshot Entertainments.
Meanwhile, the film’s producer had quashed the rumours that the Kannada star Kiccha Sudeep will be making his debut in the Malayalam film industry with Neerali. He had said that Sudeep hasn’t been approached to join the star cast. We also hear that Meena may be hopping onboard Neerali, which again are unconfirmed reports. The film’s shooting is currently on in Mumbai and will move over to Pune in the coming days.
