Parvathy’s ‘Varthamanam’ is finally gearing up for release. The makers have announced that the film will be hitting screens on March 12.
Directed by National award winner Sidhartha Siva, this film has been in the news for sometime now.
Recently, it was embroiled in a controversy after the regional Censor Board denied permission to screen the film alleging that its theme is anti-national and could destroy religious harmony. After the issue heated up, the makers received a go-ahead from the Delhi Central Censor Board revising committee.
‘Varthamanam’ has Parvathy playing a character named Faiza Sufiya. She is a research student at the JNU. For the last few years, the university has been grabbing nationwide attention over the several political incidents and protests occurring in the campus.
The film is actually inspired from these true events.
Aryadan Shoukath, another National award winner, has scripted it based on the current issues in the country. He is also producing the film along with Benazeer of Benzy Productions.
Roshan Mathew, Siddique, Sanju Sivaram, Sudheesh, Nirmal Palazhi, Dain Davis and some non-Malayali actors are also part of the cast.
