After ‘Kammattipaadam’, P Balachandran to script his next for Tovino Thomas
Seems like Tovino Thomas is the most wanted star in Malayalam cinema currently. Riding on a string of hit films, the actor has been bagging many new projects. He already has around five new films in his kitty and as per latest reports, he has signed for one more. Swapnesh K Nair, a former associate of Omar Lulu, will be making his directorial debut with a Tovino starrer. Thomas and Jayant Mammen will be producing the movie under the banner of Ruby Films.
This yet-to-be titled movie is being scripted by actor-writer P Balachandran. He has earlier scripted acclaimed films like ‘Ulladakkam’, ‘Pavithram’, ‘Agnidevan’ and ‘Punaradhivasam’. The Rajeev Ravi directorial |Kammattipaadam’ was the last film scripted by Balachandran. Details about his upcoming movie with Tovino Thomas have not yet been revealed.
The last couple of years have been remarkable for Tovino. The actor has successfully cemented his place among the industry’s top league actors. His latest release ‘Theevandi’ has opened to stellar response at the box office and is expected to continue its good run in the coming weeks also.
Tovino is currently shooting in Canada for Salim Ahamed’s ‘And The Oscar Goes To’. He also has a couple of schedules left for Prithviraj directorial ‘Lucifer’, that has Mohanlal in the lead. ‘Luca’ with debutant Arun Bose, an untitled travel film with director Jeo Baby and ‘Kalki’ with Praveen Prabharam are his other upcoming films. His next to hit screens will be Madhupal’s ‘Oru Kuprasidha Payyan’. His maiden staright Tamil film ‘Maari 2’, in which he plays the villain opposite Dhanush, is also gearing up for release.
