Talking to Sify, Trisha said “I hope I am never satisfied in my career I will need a really, really huge reason to turn away from my line of work. And I mean a really huge reason. Thankfully that reason hasn’t come my way yet.”
Shyamaprasad had earlier directed Agnisakshi (1999), starring Rajit Kapoor and Shobana. The film won the National Award for Best Feature Film in Malayalam. It was also controversial for allegedly glorifying irrational belief in traditions. He won a second National Award for Best Feature Film in Malayalam with Akale, starring Sheela, Geetu Mohandas, and Prithviraj. He went on to make the critically acclaimed Ore Kadal (2007), which starred Mammootty and Meera Jasmine. He has previously worked with Nivin Pauly in English: An Autumn in London (2013) and Ivide (2015)
Meanwhile Trisha’s has a number ongoing projects include Mohini, Sathuranga Vettai-2, a remake of NH-10, and a film with Vijay Sethupathi.
Nivin Pauly’s Tamil film directed by Gautham Ramachandran and the Malayalam film Sakhavu are both scheduled to release soon. He is currently shooting for Althaf’s Ngangalude Naattil Oridavela.
