The duo had collaborated for Aadu and Aadu 2 and this time around it will be an action entertainer that will have Jayasurya in a serious role.

Reports also emerged that Swathi Reddy will be making her comeback to Malayalam films with Thrissur Pooram. While her fans were eagerly waiting for it to happen, the latest reports now say that Anu Sithara has taken over the role. Sources in the know say that Swathi could not join the sets due to date issues and eventually the role went to Anu Sithara. Anu will play Jayasurya’s wife in the film and it is said to be a performance-oriented role.

Deepu Joseph will be in charge of the editing table and RD Rajasekar has been signed up to crank the camera with Ratheesh Vegha composing the tunes. Thrissur Pooram will be shot in different locations in Thrissur, Coimbatore and Hyderabad.

Anu Sithara currently has Mamangam in her kitty. The historical has Mammootty playing the lead role. Mamangam began its production with debut director Sajeev Pillai wielding the megaphone.
