Zaya David is a newcomer who will play the female lead in Pranav Mohanlal's next film Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu, directed by Arun Gopy. A resident of Bengaluru, she says that her entry into the film was through an audition held at Kochi. On a lighter vein, she says that Pranav does not understand her Malayalam diction and would not deliver his dialogue even when it was his turn. He had problems understanding her Malayalam and said that he would forget the language if he listens to her speak. Zaya says that being a newcomer, she is not carrying the 'expectations' baggage as the successful people like Pranav and Arun Gopy who had delivered hits in their debut ventures.
