Jayaram’s next with Salim Kumar titled Daivame Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam
We had earlier reported about actor Salim Kumar directing a movie with Jayaram in the lead. The movie has now got a very interesting title – Daivame Kaithozham K. Kumarakanam. Apparently, Jayaram’s character is named as K Kumaran. Salim Kumar has also scripted this movie which is a family entertainer with prominence to humour.
Mamta Mohandas plays the female lead, marking her fourth film with Jayaram after sharing screen space with the veteran in Katha Thudarunnu, Njanum Ente Familiyum and Madhuchandralekha. Sreenivasan, Salim Kumar and Nedumudi Venu will also be seen in substantial roles in the movie.
Shoot for this upcoming movie will commence tomorrow (October 11). The movie is being jointly produced by Alwin Antony of Ananya Films and Dr Zachariah Thomas of United Global Media (UGM) Entertainment.
This is Salim Kumar’s third directorial after the critically acclaimed Compartment and Karutha Joothan. The later deals with the Jewish history in Kerala of 2000 years. Salim Kumar’s story for the movie won him a Kerala State Award last year. His upcoming movie with Jayaram will be his first attempt in making a mainstream commercial film as his both his previous films were offbeat ones.
Jayaram, meanwhile is going through a rough patch. His last release Achayans was an average success in the box office even though critics slammed the movie. His next release will be Aakashamittayi, the official remake of Samuthiraknai’s Tamil movie Appa. Mamta Mohandas on the other hand is busy shooting for Carbon directed by ace cinematographer Venu.
