One cannot easily forget the outstanding performance of Shobana in the Fazil directed movie Manichitrathazhu. Now it's reported that she is back in the same character for the movie Geethanjali directed by Priyadarshan. People were very excited when director Priyadarshan announced the coming back of character Dr Sunny, played by Mohanlal in Manichitrathazhu. He said that he will be having only Dr Sunny in his movie.
But now erasing all the confusions, Priyadarshan has declared the presence of Nagavalli (played by Shobana) also in his movie. She will only be doing a guest appearance in the movie.
The movie revolves around two lovers, which is played by new faces. Some suspected incidents happen in their relationship in the midst, and thus paves way for the entry of Dr Sunny. Shobana plays the role of Ganga itself, but will not be seen as Nagavalli in the movie. The script writer also assures some performing climax for her that will surpass the character of Mohanlal's Dr Sunny.
Shobana is now seen as a performing artist. She is so fond of dancing that she stopped doing films and had concentrated her entire time on dance. She has her own school of dancing. Her dance based on 'Krishna' has won many appreciation inside and outside India.
Geethanjali will have a huge cast including Mohanlal, Shobana, Innocent, Ganesh, Madhu, Siddique, etc. Music is composed by Vidyasagar. Shooting of the movie is expected to kick start on September 5. Thiru is rolling the camera for the movie.
