Actress Manju Warrier turned muse for actor Mammootty recently. The actor’s photos of his The Priest co-star Manju during the film’s shoot have gone viral. Manju took to Instagram and shared a few of the silhouette pictures with a note that read, "Photographed by none other than Malayalam Cinema's Ace Photographer MAMMOOKKA!!! This is TREASURE!!!! Thank you Mammookka!."

Mammootty, who is fond of gadgets and has a large collection of gizmos, is an avid photographer. During the Coronavirus lockdown, Mammootty spent his time honing his photography skills and clicking numerous photos of the birds around his neighbourhood. He had also shared photos of the birds with the note "Morning guests! #myphotography #oldhobbies #stayinghome #stayingsafe (sic)."

Meanwhile, Manju, who has a series of films lined up for release which include Chathurmukham, Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, Jack and Jill, Kayattam, Lalitham Sundaram, Padavettu and Meri Aawaz Suno after The Priest, which released on March 4, seems to have increased her fan base with a photograph shot during a promotion of Chathurmukham. In the picture, taken during the press conferance of the film, Manju, sporting bangs and wearing a crisp white shirt and black pleated skirt is caught smiling from ear to ear. While many commented that the How Old Are You? actress did not look her age, haters said she should dress her age. Several commented on how she was fueling male “Adult-as-schoolgirl” fantasies in the picture.

Chathurmukham is a horror film directed by Ranjeet Kamala Sankar and Salil V. Manju Warrier will share the screen space Sunny Wayne in the film. Manju is currently awaiting the release of her upcoming movie Marakkar: Arabikkadalinte Simham which features Mohanlal in the lead role. Expectations surrounding the film are sky high as it recently won the 67th National film award in the best film category.
