Major Ravi and Mammootty to team up!
Director Major Ravi’s last release was the Mohanlal starrer 1971 Beyond Borders. The movie starring Mohanlal in a dual role is the fourth in the Major Mahadevan series. During it’s theatrical run, the movie failed to create any sort of impact and ended up as a collosal disaster.
The latest we hear is that Major Ravi is planning to team up with Megastar Mammootty in the near future. As per reports, Mammootty is keen on doing an action movie with Major Ravi out of the usual army based films. The two have earlier worked together ten years back in Mission 90 Days.
The director, in his Facebook page, had recently posted a photo they had taken during the movie’s shoot and remarked that Mammootty looks the same even after ten years. This has apparently fuelled the speculations about the duo teaming up once again.
Mission 90 Days was Major Ravi’s second directorial venture after the blockbuster Keerthichakra. Eventhough the movie was not a commercial success, it is still considered as one of the best works of Major Ravi.
We had earlier told you that Major Ravi will be working on a romantic story with Nivin Pauly. This yet to be titled movie is said to be inspired from true events. Popular cinematographer Jomon T John is venturing into production through this movie. This movie will reportedly start rolling by the end of this year.
Mammootty meanwhile has a list of
movies in his kitty. He is currently shooting in Bangalore for ad filmmaker Sharrath Sandith’s debut directorial. He will be soon joining the final schedule of 7th Day fame Shyam Dhar’s upcoming family entertainer. This untitled movie is slated to hit screens for Onam. Cinematographer Shamdat’s debut directorial Streetlights is another movie in the pipeline. Scenarist Sethu’s debut directorial Kozhithankachan and Vysakh’s mass entertainer Raja 2 are some of the other movies in his kitty.
