Aanandam fame Vishak Nair to replace Sreenath Bhasi in Chunkzz
We had recently reported that director Omar Lulu who shot to fame with his debut movie Happy Wedding, is gearing up to start his next project titled as Chunkzz. Sreenath Bhasi was initially said to play one of the lead characters in the movie. However, now we hear that Aanandam fame Vishak Nair has replaced him.
Sources close to the camp inform that Sreenath Bhasi was replaced due to his busy schedule. Shoot for Honey Bee 2 : Celebrations, which he is currently working on, got extended and that forced him opt out of Omar Lulu’s movie.
Vishak Nair garnered appreciation from the critics and the audience alike for his performance as the jovial Kuppi in Aanandam. He was also roped in for ace filmmaker Ranjith’s upcoming movie Puthan Panam with Mammootty in the lead.
Apart from Vishak, Chunkzz will also feature Balu Varghese, Ganapathi and Dharmajan Bolgatty in pivotal characters. Mareena Michael who was noted for her brief appearance in Happy Wedding is also playing an important character in the movie. The team is yet to announce the main female lead.
Chunkzz is scripted by three newbies, Sanoop Thykoodam, Joseph Vijeesh and Aneesh Hameed. They have jointly written the screenplay and dialogues for Omar Lulu’s story. First look poster of the movie will be unveiled today.
The director has also assembled a strong technical team for his second movie. Gopi Sunder will be composing the music for this fun filled entertainer. Honey Bee fame Alby will be cranking the camera while Dilip Dennies will be handling the cuts. Pulimurugan’s art director Joseph Nellickal is also part of the team. The movie is scheduled to go on floors on February 9.
