Biju Menon to reunite with Vellimoonga director Jibu Jacob
Biju Menon is likely to team up with director Jibu Jacob once again. The duo had previously worked together in ‘Vellimoonga’ and ‘Adhyarathri’. While ‘Vellimoonga’ was a sleeper hit at the box office, ‘Adhyarathri’ failed to emerge successful. The two will be hoping to reap success this time. It is also learnt that the director is planning a small-scale film with Anna Ben as the lead. It remains to be seen which of the two goes on floors first.
Jibu Jacob’s next to hit screens will be ‘Ellam Sheriyaakum’ starring Asif Ali and Rajisha Vijayan as the leads. Scripted by Sharis Muhammed, it is a political satire in which Asif Ali will be seen as a youth activist of the left-wing party. The cast also includes Sudheer Karamana, Siddique, Kalabhavan Shajohn and Sethulakshmi among others. It is produced by Thomas Thiruvalla and Dr Paul Varghese under the banner of Dr Paul’s Entertainment.
The makers had earlier announced June 4 as the release date, but it remains to be seen if things go as per plans due to the second wave of pandemic.
