Jagathy Sreekumar's daughter Sreelekshmi (Jagathy had talked about his secret marriage to a low profile actress at Guruvayoor temple many years ago and their daughter Sreelakshmi) will be making her debut in Mollywood opposite Fahad Fazal in the movie Iyer in Pakistan.
A few years ago, nobody was aware that Sreelakshmi, a XII class student in Christ Nagar School, Thiruvananthapuram was the love child of veteran Malayalam actor Jagathy Sreekumar. Just two days prior to his accident, Jagathy had informed his family and the world about this truth and his family had even accepted his second family. Speaking about how she landed with the role, Sreelakshmi said, "Actress Sukumari Amma knows me from childhood and she had a conversation regarding me with Sidhu Panackal, the production executive. When director Fasal and the team were searching for a heroine and I was introduced to them by Sidhu."
Sreelakshmi is extremely talented and has even won the title of 'Kalathilakam'. She owes her acting ability to her father Jagathy and her dancing abilities to her mother who is a well trained classical dancer. Though she wants to act, Sreelakshmi is also keen on pursuing her studies and fulfilling her father's dream of making her an IAS officer.
The movie, Iyer in Pakistan, revolves around a murder that takes place in a Pakistan colony in Mattancherry and the events that follow. The shooting for the film is all set to begin in April.
