On the other hand, actress, Manju Warrier who made her come back in the Mollywood after 14 years in 2015, did successfully make her mark.
 
Fondly called the Lady Superstar of Mollywood, Manju was an inspiration to many and had set a mark of her own in the industry. Even to this day, despite the long break, she is an actress much in demand.
 
 
The year 2016, has been good for Manju too. Especially when compared to the last year, the actress is being roped in to play remarkable roles this year.

 


 
In Mollywood, she started the year with Paavada with just a guest appearance. In Rajesh Pillai's Vettah, Manju made a comeback in which she played the role of a powerful police officer. In Deepu Karunakaran's Karinkunnam Sixes she played the role of a Volleyball coach.
 

Manju has also been roped in for a Kollywood film as the lead opposite to Aravind Swamy. The film is expected to go on floors in 2017.

 


 

Moreover, 2017 also holds good prospects for the actress. Manju Warrier has completed her portions for the film C/O Saira Banu, in which she will be seen sharing the screen space with veteran actress Amala.
 
So, for sure, 2016 has been good for both Jayasurya and Manju Warrier!
