Dileep and B Unnikrishnan to team up for the first time!
Dileep, who was last seen in Kammara Sambhavam, has not signed a movie after that. He already has Professor Dinkan and an untitled film with Nadirshah in his kitty. The latest we hear is that the actor has signed for a new movie with director B Unnikrishnan. The two have not worked together before and so it will be interesting to see how their rapport works.
As per reports, shoot for their upcoming movie will be commencing on July 20. They are planning to release the movie for this year’s Christmas. More details about the genre or other cast members have not yet been revealed. An official announcement is expected to be made by the makers very soon.
B Unnikrishnan’s last release was the Mohanlal starrer Villain. The movie, which was released last October, also had Tamil actor Vishal, Manju Warrier, Hansika and Raashi Khanna in major roles. Though Mohanlal’s performance was appreciated unanimously, the movie failed to do well at the box office.
Later, B Unnikrishnan had announced a project with Fahadh Faasil and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles. Sajeev Pazhoor, who won the National award for Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, had penned the story while Unnikrishnan worked on the screenplay along with Dileesh Nair. However, there was no follow-up to that and so we presume that project has been shelved for now.
