Model-turned-actress Piaa Bajpai is back in Tamil films after a long hiatus with an upcoming film titled as Abhiyum Anuvum.
In fact, the film is being shot simultaneously as a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual, with the Malayalam version getting titled as Abhiyude Kadha Anuvinteyum. Mollywood’s Tovino Thomas is getting paired up opposite Piaa in the film, which is directed by popular cinematographer-turned-director B.R. Vijayalakshmi, who had directed the SPB-starrer and Maestro Ilaiyaraaja’s musical hit film Paattu Paadavaa in 1995.
Vijayalakshmi is directing only her second film in more than two decades with Abhiyum Anuvum which is apparently a heroine-oriented script and has Piaa in a never-before seen role. She has tonsured her curly hair for her charcter in the film, locked lips with Tovino Thomas in more than one occasion in the film which she believes would resurrect her career.
“Lip-lock sequences haven’t been inserted forcefully in the film but form integral and emotional parts of the script,” asserts Vijayalakshmi, who says that the film has plenty of things which would be loved by the younger generation. Prabhu, Suhasini, Rohini and Manobala play major roles in the film.
