Actor Jayasurya is considered one of the most versatile actors in the Malayalam film industry, and the roles he chooses to play in every movie always surprise audiences, as the actor always tends to choose challenging roles that are completely different from one another.

Kathanar Movie OTT Platform (Digital Rights)

“Kathanar” marks the debut of actress Anushka Shetty in the Malayalam film industry. Earlier, Malayalam moviemakers mostly cast actresses from Kerala state or from the Tamil film industry, but recently they have started casting actresses from other film industries. Recently, actress Tamannaah Bhatia also made her Malayalam debut with the movie “Bandra” alongside actor Dileep and actress Anushka Shetty, who has been ruling the Telugu film industry for more than a decade and is trying her luck in Malayalam movies.

Anushka Shetty was last seen in the OTT movie “Nishabdham” alongside Madhavan and her latest movie “Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty” alongside Naveen Polishetty has hit theaters recently and received a very good response from the audience. She stopped signing continuous movies in the last few years and focused more on the subjects that offered a role for her and had some importance. Let us hope Anushka Shetty will succeed in the Malayalam film industry with this movie and receive more offers just like she did in the Telugu film industry. As of now, the movie team is planning to complete the movie as soon as possible for theatrical release and hasn’t shared any details about the OTT platform on which the movie will have its digital premiere after the theatrical run.
