Divya Unni to be next Stree
THE NEXT round of Stree will have Divya Unni playing the lead, it has been announced. The first, second and third parts have been on the TV screens for a good four years and the rush of serials have proved that they are as essential as cereals for the Malayali psyche. All the three parts had different characters and different actors. But they are shown under the title of Stree. The thousandth episode, of the third one, was recently telecast. The next serial will be directed by P.C. Venugopal. Mani Shoranur will write the script and B. Kumar will crank the camera.
