The audio launch of AMMA's multi-starrer Twenty:20 was held on October 15 in a grant function at Hotel Travancore Court, Ernakulam. The main attraction at the event was former Malayalam actress Manju Warrier, who made a public appearance several years after her sudden marriage with actor Dilip in 1998. AMMA president Innocent released the audio cassette and handed it over to Manju Warrier.
Manju Warrier debuted in films at the age of 18 with Sallapam (1996), co-starring actor Dilip, which became a huge commercial hit in Kerala. Since then, she never turned back. Within three years, she acted in around 20 Malayalam movies, most of which have been hits. Apart from numerous awards and critical acclaims, Manju Warrier was considered to be the top heroine of her period. Notably, she still remains as one of the most-loved actresses in Malayalam.
For her extraordinary performance in Kannezhuthi Pottum Thottu, directed by Rajeev Kumar, Manju Warrier won a special mention from the jury for National film awards. Manju Warrier acted in more than 50 films. Her popular films include Kanmadam, Aaram Thamburan, Ee Puzhayum Kadannu, Kudamattom, Summer In Bethlehem, Pranayavarnnangal, Kaliyattom, Irattakuttykalude Achan, Kaliveedu, Thooval Kottaram and Krishan Gudiyil Oru Pranayakalathu. She left the film field at the peak of her career.
After her marriage, she completely retired from films. Her last film was Pathram opposite Sureshgopi. Anyway, does her first public appearance after a long 10 years mean her comeback to films? Well, we may need to wait a little to confirm this hot news!
