Sakshi Agarwal has been on cloud nine ever since she bagged an important role in the Rajinikanth starrrer Kaala. With her career going great guns, the pretty actor has now inked the deal to play the female lead in a Malayalam movie. Yes, this will be her debut in Mollywood and she is paired opposite Biju Menon.

Titled Orayiram Kinakkalal, the film is being directed by Pramod Mohan, who will be making his directorial debut. On getting to sign on the dotted lines to play the female lead in the movie, Sakshi recalled in an interview to a leading English daily that one fine day she got a call from a casting manager asking her to attend the audition for the film. Sakshi said that she did not think twice over attending the audition as she very much wanted to make her Mollywood debut and was looking for the right opportunity.

The actor revealed that she will be playing Biju Menon’s wife Preethi Menon in the film. Having completed the first schedule of Orayiram Kinakkalal’s shooting, Sakshi Agarwal is waiting eagerly to join the sets again.

Speaking about the film, Sakshi said in an interview to the Indian Express, “They are a family who return from the United Kingdom, so they follow the traditions of the west but are also rooted in the Indian culture. It is a fun movie. Biju Menon sir is known for his humour. It is a privilege for me to debut with him.”

On taking part in the audition and bagging the role, Sakshi said that the entire team was very cooperative though she did not know Malayalam. She also pointed out that the director gave room for her to improvise. All these factors have made Sakshi’s debut in Mollywood a cakewalk.
