Dileep’s brother Anoop all set to make his directorial debut
Actor Dileep’s brother Anoop is set to wear the director’s hat. Santhosh Echikkanam is scripting the movie, which will be produced by Dileep’s own banner, Graand Productions. It is also learnt that the movie will have a bunch of newcomers in the lead roles. The makers had recently released a casting call looking for feamle actors between the age group of 18-22 and male actors between 24-27. Both male and female candidates between 35-55 can also send in their profile to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is said that Anoop’s directorial debut is based on one of Santhosh Echikkanam’s famous short stories. Echikkanam has earlier scripted films like ‘Njan Steve Lopez’, ‘Annayum Rasoolum’, ‘Chandrettan Evideya’ and ‘Nidra’. Though the lead actors are newcomers, Dileep’s presence in the production side will certainly heighten the expectations.
Almost a decade back, Dileep had produced ‘Malarvadi Arts Club’ which marked the debut of several youngsters like Nivin Pauly, Aju Varghese, Vineeth Sreenivasan (as director) and composer Shaan Rahman (songs and background score), who all went on to carve a niche for themselves in the industry.
