Mammootty allots 60 more days for Maamaankam
‘Maamaankam’ shoot is currently progressing. After a long gap, Mammootty is set to join the team. The actor has given 60 more days from his packed schedule for this movie. ‘Maamaankam’ originally went on floors in mid-2018. But the team was hit by quite a few controversies which included the ousting of its director Sajeev Pillai. M Padmakumar is helming the film now. The movie now has a new set of actors and technicians.
‘Maamaankam’ is based on the medieval fair, Maamaankam, where brave warriors from various regions would come together to showcase their skills at combat. Mammootty plays the lead role of a fiery ‘Chaaver’ (warrior) in this movie, which revolves around the life of warriors who plot to defeat the Zamorin rulers.
Unni Mukundan is playing a prominent role in the movie. Kaniha and Anu Sithara play the two female leads. Others in the cast include Siddique, Abu Salim, Sudheer Sukumaran and others. Venu Kunnappilly is producing the movie under the banner of Kavya Films. The makers are planning and release the movie by this year itself.
