Tovino Thomas and Trisha to collaborate for the first time

Tovino Thomas was last seen in blockbuster 2018. He is set to collaborate with director duo Akhil Paul and Anas Khan for the second time. Their upcoming film is titled Identity. Reportedly, Akhil Paul and Anas Khan are planning to rope in Trisha as the female lead.

Trisha is in discussions to star in another Malayalam film, and this time opposite Tovino Thomas. Trisha made her Malayalam debut alongside Nivin Pauly in Shyamaprasad’s film Hey Jude in 2018. Her upcoming project includes the thriller Ram opposite Mohanlal. The film reunites the actor with director Jeethu Joseph after the immense success of Drishyam 2.

Recently, director Gautham Vasudev Menon shared in an interview that Tovino Thomas was initially considered to be a part of the sequel to the Tamil film Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. The original film featured Trisha in the iconic role of Jessie, which has become one of the most memorable characters in recent Tamil cinema.

The sequel was planned to focus on Simbu’s character Karthik, with Tovino slated to portray one of his friends. Even though the project didn’t work out, fans were quite interested to see what was stored in.
