Dileesh Pothan’s next is with Megastar Mammootty!!
Dileesh Pothan is now an indispensable part of the Malayalam film industry. He has directed two outstanding movies – Maheshinte Prathikaram and Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum – while also playing supporting roles in numerous movies. Though Pothan is just two-film-old, he is a much revered filmmaker and his movies are widely discussed in social media platforms.
Ever since the release of Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, the director has constantly been asked about his next movie; but he has remained tight-lipped all this while. We now hear that Pothan is planning to direct Megastar Mammootty in his next movie. Another interesting thing about this movie is that actor Suraj Venjaramoodu will be scripting it jointly with Syam Pushkaran.
Suraj has worked with Mammootty in numerous films and they both share a great rapport. In fact, Suraj first came to limelight by helping Mammootty with the Trivandrum dialect in the movie Rajamanikyam. Suraj also played one of the leads in Dileesh Pothan’s Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, so he surely knows the director’s working style. It will be really interesting to see what Suraj, Pothan and Syam Pushkaran have in store for Mammootty. We are still waiting for an official confirmation.
Meanwhile, Dileesh Pothan and Syam Pushkaran along with Fahadh Faasil are starting a new production company. Their maiden venture, ‘Kumbalangi Nights’ is being scripted by Syam Pushkaran and will be directed by Madhu C Narayanan, a former associate of Dileesh and Aashiq Abu. The movie is expected to start rolling very soon.
