Actress Shamna Kasim a.k.a. Poorna would be essaying the heroine’s role in veteran film-maker Visu’s upcoming film Manal Kayiru 2, sequel to his super-duper hit film Manal Kayiru which he made in 1982.
Said to be one of the most hilarious comedies ever to have been made in Kollywood, Manal Kayiru has actor-politician S.Ve. Shekhar and Shanthi Krishna in lead roles. Late M.S. Viswanathan had scored the music of the film which had the late ‘Aachi’ Manorama and Visu himself essaying prominent roles.
The film’s script was about a novel way of bride-hunting attempted by a youth (S.Ve. Shekhar) who posed 8 conditions to the broker who set out to locate a suitable girl for him.
Ultimately, he won’t get the girl he aspired and the resultant sequences were narrated laced with high-octane comedy. The sequel to this film is now being made after 34 years.
Visu and S.Ve. Shekhar would be part of the sequel with S.Ve. Shekhar’s son Ashwin trying his hand again at lead role in the film opposite Poorna. R. Madhan Kumar, who made the adult comedy Yaaruda Mahesh in 2013, would be directing the sequel which would be produced by Sri Thenandal Films. The shoot of the film commenced recently.
