In her new movie 'Ayisha' released on January 20th, Manju plays the real life character of Nilambur Ayisha the first actress from the Muslim community to act in Malayalam films. Her performance has been critically acclaimed.

Manju in a recent interview has shared that she got the chance to act with Ajith Kumar twenty two years back in 'Kandu Kondein Kandu Kondein'. She stated that she was the first choice to play the role eventually portrayed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. She couldnt do the film at that time as she was busy with several Malayalam projects.
