Actress Reenu Mathews, who has earlier worked with with megastar Mammootty in two Malayalam films, has bagged a plum role in actor Prithviraj's upcoming movie Sapthama Sree Thaskaraha (SST), which will be directed by Anil Radhakrishnan Menon. Actress Nyla Usha was to play the female lead in it, but Reenu has replaced her after she walked out of the project quoting dates issue.
Director Anil Radhakrishnan Menon himself has confirmed the news about casting Reenu Mathews for the female lead in his forthcoming film Sapthama Sree Thaskaraha. "Reenu will be seen in a different avatar in my film. She will play a bolder woman unlike the shy and simple roles she has played in her earlier outings," the TOI quoted the director as saying about her role in the movie.
Meanwhile, Reenu Mathews says that she is excited to work with Prithviraj. She told TOI, "Everyone used to ask me when I will work with other actors and it has happened now. I am happy to work with a new generation actor like Prithviraj and an award winning director too. I have completed two days of shoot and will join the set next month. Initially, I was a bit tense as the entire team was new, but the shoot was fun,"
Reenu Mathews, who is full-time flight attendant, started her acting career with Mammootty's movie Immanuel, which was released in theatres on April 4, 2013. Later, she has featured in Dulquar Salman's Anchu Sundharikal and Mammookka's another movie Praise The Lord. She has also completed shoot for Amal Neerad's Iyobinte Pusthakam. She will now play Prithviraj's wife in Sapthama Sree Thaskaraha.
