Published: 01st March 2018

Ganapa-fame Priyanka Thimmesh who is making her Malayalam debut in Roshan Andrews’ upcoming directorial Kayamkulam Kochunni starring Nivin Pauly and Priya Anand has completed shooting her portions.

Back in Bengaluru, the actor can’t stop gushing about the short and sweet interaction she had with Malayalam superstar Mohanlal, who plays a pivotal role in the period drama, as Ithikkara Pakkai. The shooting took place at the coastal belt near Udupi. This is the fourth film that Roshan and Mohanlal are collaborating on.

“The entire cast gets to share screenpace with the actor, “ says Priyanka, who had a fan moment with the star. “This was the first time, I was ever meeting a star of that status in person. The excitement doubled when he mentioned that ‘I was a girl with a good soul’. Usually, everybody speaks about our profession, but a few good words from him made me happy. He remembered old heroines like late Soundarya and Meena and said that I should take inspirations from such artists. He also said, ‘Welcome to the Mallu family’, and it was a warm feeling. Even though he is a star, he makes us feel like one,” she says.

Priyanka says, that the project has only gotten bigger and she is confident that the film will go down history like Baahubali, and Padmavat. “Being part of such a film is an honour,” she says. 

The actor will now head to Kodachadri Hills for the last leg of shooting for her Kannada film, Bheema Sena Nala Maharaja. The film, directed by Karthik Saragur and made under Pushkar Films, features Aravinnd Iyer and Aarohi Narayan.

Priyanka also has Suni’s John Seena, the shooting schedule of which is yet to be decided.
