Anu Sithara paired with Unni Mukundan in Maamaankaam
Shoot for Mammootty’s ambitious period flick, Maamaankaam, is currently progressing at Kannavam forests in Kannur. After the ousting of its original director Sajeev Pillai, M Padmakumar has taken up the project. Following the various controversies, the makers have gone for a complete overhaul in the cast and crew. Unni Mukundan, Kaniha and Anu Sithara were new additions to the cast.
Reportedly, Anu Sithara will be paired with Unni in the film. The role was first offered to her two years back but she could not commit then due to her busy schedule. Now that the opportunity has come once again, she could not let go off it. Anu is excited about bagging a prominent role in such a big project. She has already started shooting for her portions.
‘Maamaankam’ is based on the medieval fair, Maamaankam, where brave warriors from across the country would come together to showcase their skills at combat. Mammootty plays the lead role of a fiery ‘Chaaver’ (warrior) in this movie, which revolves around the life of warriors who plot to defeat the Zamorin rulers. Unni Mukundan is also said to be playing a warrior’s role in the movie. Other details will be revealed shortly.
Venu Kunnappilly is producing ‘Maamaankaam’ under the banner of Kavya Films. The makers are planning to wrap up the shoot quickly and release the movie this year itself.
