Prabhudheva joins as choreographer in Manju Warrier film Ayisha
Manju plays the titular role in the film billed as a family drama
We had earlier reported that Manju Warrier is headlining Ayisha, an Indo-Arab project helmed by debutant Amir Pallikkal and produced by Sudani From Nigeria and Halal Love Story director Zakariya.
The latest update is that the project, which is being filmed currently in the UAE, has enlisted the supreme choreography skills of Prabhudheva for the tracks sung by Jayachandran.
Notably, Prabhudheva, whose last Malayalam acting appearance was 2011's Urumi, did his first choreography work in Malayalam in 1992's Johnnie Walker.
Manju plays the titular role in the film billed as a family drama. Ashif Kakkodi, who wrote Halal Love Story and the upcoming Momo In Dubai, is behind the script.
Amir Pallikkal has previously worked with directors of Halal Love Story and Sudani From Nigeria.
The film will be shot entirely in the Middle East. Along with Malayalam and Arabic, the makers also plan to release it in English and other Indian languages.
Co-produced by Shamsudheen MT, Harris Desom, PB Anish, and Zakariya Vavad, Ayisha will commence shooting from January 2022.
Vishnu Sharma is the director of photography, with Appu N Bhattathiri handling the editing. M Jayachandran is working on the music to the lyrics by BK Harinarayanan and Suhail Koya.
