Jeethu Joseph clarifies that Ram has not been dropped!
Before the lockdown, Jeethu Joseph was working on ‘Ram’ that had superstar Mohanlal in the lead. Due to the Covid-19 scenario and since the film needs to be shot abroad, the makers had to stall shoot indefinitely. Last week, the director had revealed about his plans to helm another film before resuming ‘Ram’. This has triggered speculations that the Mohanlal starrer has been shelved.
Jeethu Joseph has now come out clarifying that ‘Ram’ has not yet been dropped and will resume shoot as soon as the virus threat is down in UK and Uzbekistan. Meanwhile, he will be starting works on a new film which will be shot completely in Kerala. The director’s Facebook post reads,
In the last two three days I have been getting calls and messages asking whether I have shelved my Mohanlal movie ‘RAM’ and planning another project. We had to stop the work of ‘RAM’ due to the spread of Covid Virus, but it will resume shoot once the virus threat is down in UK and Uzbekistan. Since kerala is one of the few places in the world where Corona has been controlled effectively, its likely to start the shoot early here. Considering this possibility, in the meantime I am thinking of a film which has its shoot entirely in kerala but this doesn’t mean in any way that I have abandoned the project ‘RAM’. It’s just being delayed due to the circumstances.
