Uma Riaz plays mother of Atharvaa in Bala’s Eriyum Thanal


Bala gets Uma Riaz for Eriyum Thanal

Bala’s Eriyum Thanal has already turned some heads clean. The director made news earlier for ordering 200 of his hired junior artists to get their heads spotlessly hair free before starting off the shoots. Atharva who is sporting the lead in the movie was not spared either, as he hid his bald looks under a black skull cap during the Mupozhudum Un Karpanaigal audio launch event.

Cute face Vedhika has been roped in to play the female lead, on agreement of doing some semi nude scenes in the movie. Now the Director has got a new addition in actress Uma Riaz, who will play the role of Atharva’s mom in the movie. Delighted to be part of the project Uma said, “If it wasn’t for director Bala I would have never taken up this mother role.” It was Uma’s performance as a pregnant police officer in the recent flick Mauna Guru that impressed Bala to get her on board for the movie.The director has mentioned that the film is based on a Malayalam novel and explores the struggles of bringing up children by their parents. Composer GV Prakash will be providing some fitting music to round up this release as another classic from Bala.
