In the note shared on Instagram, she talked about some of her favorite moments, challenges and the profound impact the project has had on her career.

Thankamani is a folk singer and a real life character that I was lucky enough to portray in a film. I had the privilege of working with so many incredible technicians and artists on this film. It was a really neat learning experience.”Anumol she said in her Instagram post.
He also remembered the late P. Balachandran, the film’s director. “Balettan is no longer with us. I will remember and be grateful to you, Ballet. You made Thankamani beautiful and special,” her note further states.

Meanwhile, Anumol will next be seen in ‘Haraa’. The film, which marks Mohan’s comeback, was initially announced with Khushbu as the female lead. Actress Anumol has now replaced Khushbu in the film. Speaking to Chennai Times, the film’s director Vijay Sri G stated that the delay in completing the film was the reason for the cast change. “Unfortunately, earlier this year, I met with an accident and so we had to postpone the program. Mohan Sir was very supportive throughout and helped me recover from this setback. Due to date issues, Ms. Khushbu could not shoot for her sequences. We then approached Anumol and now she will be seen playing Mohan’s wife in the film, the shooting of which has been wrapped up.”
