The cast and crew of the upcoming Malayalam film Virus was announced recently and much to the delight of movie buffs Poornima Indrajith is in it. The actor, who was last seen in Gulabi Talkies, did not sign new offers for a long time.Though she has been busy with her fashion boutique and TV shows, the absence of this gorgeous actor from the big screen was noticed.

Well, she is set to stage a comeback with Virus and apparently will have a pivotal role to play though we don’t yet know what it is. Interestingly, Poornima’s husband, actor Indrajith Sukumaran is also playing a role in the movie.

Virus, a movie based on the real life outbreak of the deadly Nipah virus, is directed by Aashiq Abu and has an impressive list of stars. The cast includes actors Tovino, Asif Ali, Kunchacko Boban, Parvathy, Rima Kallingal, Soubin Shahir, Dileesh Pothan, Rahman, Indrans, Remya Nambeesan, Madonna Sebastian, Sharafudheen, Sreenath Bhasi, Revathy, Joju George, Senthil Krishna, Basil Joseph, Sudeesh and Vettukili Prakash.

While the star cast is already impressive, the director has roped in Fahadh Faasil too to play a cameo role in it. The scripting for Virus is done by Mushin Parari, Suhas and Sharfu. National Award winning cinematographer Rajeev Ravi will be cranking the camera for this venture with Sushin Shyam composing the tunes and editor Saiju Sreedharan taking charge at the editing table.

Aashiq has earlier told TNM that Revathy will be seen as Health Minister KK Shailaja, Rima Kallingal as Lini Puthussery, the nurse who was affected by the virus and passed away while treating the patients and Tovino Thomas as Kozhikode collector UV Jose.

The film will be about the real life heroic stories that came with the epidemic two years ago. “It is going to be multilayered stories of different communities – the doctors, the patients, the cleaners and so on. But it would all happen in one time and one place,” Aashiq said. It is also not an anthology.
