Revathi has said that she is all set to start work on her first feature film in Malayalam. The talented actor-turned-director made her mark as a director with her very first feature film, ‘Mitr,' which also had the distinction of having an all-women crew working on the film. ‘Makal,' one of the short films in ‘Kerala Café,' was her first directorial venture in Malayalam. “Anjali Menon and I have been working on the script of this film and we are in talks with various actors for the casting. As soon as the producer is ready, the shoot will begin. And, most likely, I will announce the film by Vishnu,” said Revathi. Now that is something to look forward to.
