Saikumar, who was in news earlier for his divorce and later his re-marriage, has once again made it to the headlines. The latest news says that the actor has reduced 14 kgs for his upcoming movie Mannar Mathai Speaking 2!
Saikumar, who was also a part of the first series of the movie, will be seen playing the same role of Balakrishnan. Mukesh will be seen essaying the role of Gopalakrishnan and Innocent will be seen as Mannar Mathai. The new series will be directed by Mammas.
The shooting of Mannar Mathai Speaking 2 is progressing in Ezhupunnai. Mannar Mathai Speaking had Vani Vishwanath playing the female lead, but the new series will have Aparna Gopinath. Aparna, who rose to fame with her movie ABCD, is also playing the female lead in Bicycle Thieves. Asif Ali plays opposite her in this movie.
Mannar Mathai Speaking 2 will see Mannar Mathai, Gopalakrishnan and Balakrishnan as travel owners and not as theater owners as it was in the earlier series. Other cast include Vijayaraghavan, Shammi Thilakan and Janardhanan. Vishnu Narayanan is wielding the camera for this movie. Mannar Mathai Speaking was the second part of Ramji Rao Speaking, which also had the same star cast.
