The highly anticipated Mammootty starrer went on floors in Kochi, recently. If the latest reports are to be believed, popular Telugu actress Anasuya Bharadwaj is making her Malayalam debut with Bheeshma Parvam.
According to the latest updates, Anasuya Bharadwaj is playing a pivotal role in the Mammootty starrer, which is said to be a gangster flick.
