Yesteryear Malayalam actress and ex-wife of filmmaker Priyadarshan, will be making a comeback in films with Nithiin’s upcoming film that is being produced by Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram jointly under the direction of Krishna Chaitanya. The film is yet to be titled and will have Lissy Lakshmi playing a significant role. “Many of my Friends and well wishers have been asking me for quite some time whether I will come back to movies. Well!!! I can now confirm that after over 25 years of absence I am acting in a Telugu movie,” wrote Lissy Lakshmi on her Facebook page confirming her comeback. This yet to be titled film will have Nithiin and Megha Akash playing the lead roles.
“The movie, yet to be titled is produced by Telugu Star Pavan Kalyan, Ace director Thrivikram Srinivas and Sudhakar Reddy, Directed by Krishna Chaitanya and has Nithiin and Megha in the lead. I am playing a significant character in the movie,” Lissy wrote further revealing details about the film. Lissy was a bit nostalgic too recalling her stint with Telugu cinema back in 80s and 90s, and wrote, “Before I quit acting I had a short but very successful tenure in Telugu. I did 8 movies in Telugu and out of that 6 went on to be super hits which included “Magaadu and 20va Satabdham, the remakes of Malayalam movies “Moonnam Mura” and “Irupatham Noottandu” respectively. To be honest I was sad to leave Telugu industry at that time but I had no choice. So when it came to acting I always felt kind of an “unfinished business” with Telugu cinema.”
Interestingly, Lissy’s daughter, Kalyani, will also be making her debut in films with Akhil’s upcoming film ‘Hello’ that is slated to be released on December 22.
