Aishwarya Lekshmi and Tovino Thomas in ‘Uyare’ Director’s Next

Manu Ashokan, director of Uyare, has announced that Aishwarya Lekshmi and Tovino Thomas will star in his next film- Kaane Kaane, being scripted by the Bobby-Sanjay duo, who also scripted Uyare.


Aishwarya Lekshmi and Tovino Thomas were last seen together in director Aashiq Abu’s ‘Mayaanadhi’. Kaane Kaane will also star Suraj Venjaramoodu, Prem Prakash, Shruti Ramachandran and Rony David Raj.

The official poster was released on Saturday. The poster looks grim and features a blood-soaked cloth lying on the ground with the tagline ‘as you watch’. The film is expected to go on the floors soon.

Kaane Kaane will be bankrolled under the DreamKatcher banner, produced by T R Shamsudheen. Music for the film will be composed by Ranjin Rajj, who also composed music for Malayalam film Joseph.

According to the director, the script was finalised during the nationwide Covid-19 related lockdown. From being a discussion during a conference call, the entire script has been completed today, he said.


“Uyare was the survival of Pallavi.. somehow mine too. So today we are all on the path of survival. When we were completely locked down in the first stage of Covid, which movie now? What is the movie? When I didn’t know that, it was my dear friend T R Shamsuddin who understood the energy to think about a movie at this time also. At first we doubted, the situation was too far for the story discussion to sit in one place. But Shamsuddin didn’t turn back. He gave love, encouragement and love that can’t be ignored. The story discussion that started through the conference call and went forward has become a complete script today,” Manu Ashokan wrote on Facebook, while releasing the official poster.

In Uyare, that released in 2019, Parvathy played the role of Pallavi Raveendran, an aspiring pilot and acid attack survivor.
