After Ganagandharvan, Mammootty to start shooting for Bilal?
Mammootty has a bunch of promising films lined up in his kitty. ‘Bilal’, the sequel to his 2007 film ‘Big B’ is the most awaited among them. The project was originally announced a couple of years back but were no further updates about it. Earlier in an interview, director Amal Neerad had said that shoot will be commencing only when he feels thoroughly satisfied with the script.
Latest buzz is that the script works have almost been completed and pre-production works are also simultaneously progressing. The makers are yet confirm but it is said that the movie is set to go on floors by the second half of the year. Mammootty is currently shooting for ‘Maamaankam’. He will next start works for ‘Ganagandharvan’, a comedy entertainer directed by Ramesh Pisharody. If reports are to be believed, ‘Bilal’ will start rolling soon after the completion of ‘Ganagandharvan’.
‘Big B’ is widely regarded as one of the most stylish films ever made in Malayalam. The movie marked the directorial debut of Amal Neerad, who was a noted cinematographer in Bollywood back then. Though the movie was just a mediocre success at the box office, over the years it attained a cult status. Expectations are sky-high for the sequel. Let’s hope the makers are able to live up to that.
