The first-look poster of Aashiq Abu's "Rani Padmini", featuring Manju Warrier and Rima Kallingal, was released on Thursday, 23 July.
The travelogue, which does not have a hero as such, revolves around two women - Rani (Manju) and Padmini (Rima) - who are on a journey from Kochi to Himachal Pradesh. Though the duo are travelling to the same destination, they both have different purposes.
Manju Warrier had made a comeback with Roshan Andrrews "How Old Are You?" in 2014, followed by Sathyan Athikkad's "Ennum Eppozhum" opposite Mohanlal earlier this year.
On the other hand, Rima Kallingal's last film was a Malayalam spoof film, "Chirakodinja Kinavukal", directed by debutant Santhosh Viswanath. She had earlier worked with Aashiq Abu, who is her husband, in "22 Female Kottayam", which won her several awards.
The script of the Aashiq Abu directorial is written jointly by Shyam Pushkaran and Ravi Shankar. The cinematography of the movie is handled by Madhu Neelakandan, editing by Saiju Sreedharan, and music by Bijibal.
Apart from Kerala, the film was shot extensively in Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi. The film, which is produced by PM Harris and VS Muhammed Althaf under the banner of Fort Entertainment, is slated for release in October.
Manju Warrier shared the first-look posters on her Facebook page:
Later on Friday, two other posters featuring the childhood life of the titular characters, Rani and Padmini, have also hit the social media.
