Actress Poorna a.k.a. Shamna Kasim, who has almost been forgotten by her Tamil fans, is making a comeback in Tamil films after more than three years.
Poorna plays the heroine in an upcoming film titled Manal Kayiru 2 (no marks for guessing that it is the sequel to the 1982 super-hit film Manal Kayiru) opposite Ashwin, son of actor S.Ve. Shekhar. Visu, Jayas, Jegan, Delhi Ganesh, Sams, M.S. Baskar and Namo Narayana form the rest of the cast of the film which is directed by Madan Kumar who also pens the screenplay and dialogues.
Talking about the remake which is made after 34 years, Madan Kumar said “Today’s girls are bold enough to implement what they want to do when it comes to choosing their grooms and leading their lives. Manal Kayiru 2 deals with what might happen when they tend to go overboard with their choices/options.
“Poorna plays the heroine who puts many pre-conditions to marrying the hero. It’s a fun-filled film which would be loved by all,” the director concludes. Late Muthukumar has penned the lyrics in the film which has music by Dharan. Besides penning the story, Shekhar also works as the associate producer. Thenandal Films is producing the film.
