Manju Warrier re-defined roles for actresses in the first phase of her career with films such as Kanmadam, Summer in Bethlehem and Kannezhuthi Pottum Thottu. Her second innings has been a bit of hit and miss for the actress. While she proved her mettle in movies such as How Old Are You and Ennum Eppozhum, her recent character in Jo and the Boy received a lukewarm response.

In a candid chat, the actress opens up about her worries of being typecast, her upcoming projects and how she plans to fulfil the late theatre legend Kavalam Narayana Panicker's dream of staging Abhijnana Shakunthalam.
