Veteran actress KR Vijaya is back on the silver screen after a long gap, with the movie Maya Mohini. The actress, who has settled in Kerala now, has been roped in for the ghost thriller in which she essays a tantrik. Directed by Rasa Vikram, the movie has Kushboo’s brother Abdullah and Jothisha in the lead, while Taarika appears as Mohini.

A popular channel assigns a reporter (Jothisha) and a cameraman (Abdullah) to Andhiyur for a reality show, in which people complain of the atrocities of a ghost called Mohini. When the cameraman proposes his love to the reporter, Mohini appears before them and threatens dire consequences — and claims that she was his lover in their previous birth! After the encounter, they seek the help of a saint played by KR Vijaya who has powers to evict the evil spirit. “I was particular about KR Vijaya madam being brought on board for that role. We went and narrated the script, and she was very happy and gave her nod without any hesitation,” says Vikram.

 

The producer of the movie, Thangavelu, claims that the story is inspired from his own life. “When I was very young, I had felt the presence of Mohini in my village. She used to come in my dreams — and when I  woke up in the morning, I’d be lying in the garden! She was haunting me until I got married. The director has tweaked my experiences a bit for the narrative form,” he reveals.
