Parvathy Thiruvothu to play the female lead in Chiyaan 61?

If the latest reports are to be believed, Parvathy Thiruvothu, the supremely talented actress has been roped in to play the female lead in Chiyaan 61. Some unconfirmed reports also suggest that Parvathy has already kickstarted shooting for her portions in Kadappa, Andhra Pradesh, along with Chiyaan Vikram and the rest of the star cast. But the makers are remaining tight-lipped regarding the star cast of Pa Ranjith’s ambitious film, so far. However, the new reports regarding Chiyaan Vikram and Parvathy Thiruvothu’s first onscreen collaboration have totally raised the expectations over the project.

Initially, it was rumoured that the Pa Ranjith film will feature popular actress Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead opposite Chiyaan Vikram. But later, the grapevine suggested that Rashmika opted out of Chiyaan 61 due to her busy schedule. It was also reported that Master actress Malavika Mohanan is replacing her in the film. But, the recent buzz regarding Parvathy Thiruvothu’s inclusion in the star cast suggests that Chiyaan 61 might feature two leading ladies.
