Thrissur Pooram was supposed to be Swathi Reddy’s comeback film in Mollywood but later it was reported that Anu Sithara bagged the role. Finally, the news is out that Swathi Reddy is very much part of Thrissur Pooram. Explaining about what happened, the film’s producer Vijay Babu had said in an interview to the Times of India, “She fell ill, and our dates couldn't wait. However, I think, the role was meant for her as our schedules got postponed due to the floods and Jayasurya's injury. Now, she is completely cured and is here all pretty and healthy.”
Ratheesh Vega, the script writer and composer of the movie has said, “Her character is very integral for the film.”
Vijay Babu and Jayasurya share a good rapport having worked together for Aadu and Aadu 2 and this will be their third venture together.
It may be noted that Jayasurya was shooting for Thrissur Pooram when he sustained mild head injuries after he collapsed on the sets. The star was shooting for an action sequence continuously for 10 days and it took a toll on his health, said sources close to the film unit.
Wielding the megaphone for this venture is Rajesh Mohanan and the story and screenplay are by music composer Ratheesh Vegha. Deepu Joseph will be in charge at the editing table and RD Rajasekar has been signed up to crank the camera with Rathesh Vega composing the tunes.
Thrissur Pooram will be shot in different locations in Thrissur, Coimbatore and Hyderabad. Anu Sithara has been roped in to play the female lead in this flick. The others in the star cast include Senthil Krishna, Sabumon Abdusamad, Vijay Babu, Gayathri Arun, Mallika Sukumaran and Sreejith Ravi.
