Thiruvananthapuram: Director Blessy's Kalimannu has made it to the headlines
for both right and wrong reasons in the past. The latest news about
the film is that Bollywood actor Sunil Shetty will play a cameo
role in it. The director of the movie himself has confirmed the
news. But he declined to reveal more details of his character.
Sunil Shetty made his Mollywood debut with Priyadarshan's movie
Kakkakuyil starring Mohanlal in lead. In a recent
interview, he had expressed his wish to act in another Malayalam
movie. In a statement to a leading English daily, Blessy has
confirmed his presence in Kalimannu. "Sunil will be doing
a guest appearance in the movie and the shoot is scheduled for next
month in Kerala," TOI quotes him as saying.
Kalimannu is a family drama, which has been written by
Blessy. The story of the film came into his mind during a trip to
Dubai after completing Pranayam. The movie unfolds the
relationship between a mother and her baby in the womb. Its filming
began even before the completion of scripting and casting. In order
to cover various stages of pregnancy, the film was shot throughout
Swetha's pregnancy. Her delivery was shot live on camera for the
film at a private hospital in Mumbai where she was admitted.
