Manju Warrier's upcoming sports movie "Karinkunnam Sixes" has been in the news ever since it hit the floors. The actress will be seen playing a Volleyball coach named Vandhana in the flick, which will be majorly shot in the backdrop of Poojapura Central Jail in Thiruvananthapuram.

Recently, there were reports that Tamil superstar Dhanush will make a cameo appearance in the Deepu Karunakaran directorial. The reports also suggested that Prithviraj was earlier considered for the role and Dhanush will join the sets by the end of March. However, a source close to the movie has confirmed to International Business Times, India, that Dhanush will not be part of the upcoming movie, even though the makers had initially planned to cast him.

Anoop Menon will be seen opposite Manju in "Karinkunnam Sixes" for which the story has been written by Arunlal Ramachandran and the scripting has been done by Deepu Karunakaran. The movie also has Babu Antony, Jacob Gregory, Chemban Vinod, Baiju, Santhosh Keezhattoor, Padmarajan Ratheesh and Sudheer Karamana in pivotal roles. While Jayakrishnan Gummudi handles the cinematography, "Karinkunnam Sixes" is being produced by Jay Menon under the banner of Lemon Productions.

Meanwhile, Manju, who is basking in the success of late filmmaker Rajesh Pillai's movie "Vettah," will resume the filming of "Karikunnam Sixes" from March 20. The latest psychological thriller, starring Kunchacko Boban and Indrajith Sukumaran in the lead, has been getting positive response from the audience and Manju was appreciated for playing the role of an IPS officer Sreebala for the first time in her acting career.
