Manju Dixit, an ex-student of prestigious Kishore Namit Kapoor’s acting institute (which boasts of training actors like Hrithik Roshan, Allu Arjun and Ranveer Kapoor) is being introduced in Tamil with a movie Malli. In the ghost thriller, Manju essays a schoolgirl and Ratthan Mouli has been roped in as the male lead. Venky Nila directs the movie, which has a period set-up.

Speaking about the film, Venky says, “It’s about a school girl from a wealthy background who falls for an uneducated boy. When their families oppose, the couple runs for their life and takes refuge at a dilapidated bungalow unaware of the fact that ghosts of kings and queens haunt the place. How they come out of the quandary forms the rest. The story then travels back in time. We located an abandoned bungalow in the forest area near Vellore and Villupuram which was not utilised in K’town horror movies so far and shot there.”

 

Though a newcomer, Manju has performed really well, according to the director. Renowned Kannada cinematographer PKH Das who has done more than 100 films cranks the camera for Malli.
