Mammootty excited to play Chief Minister in Bobby-Sanjay’s political thriller!
We had earlier reported about Mammootty committing a film with ‘Chirakodinja Kinavukal’ fame Santhosh Viswanath. The National award winning writer duo Bobby-Sanjay is scripting this film. It is their first script for Mammootty and expecations are naturally on the higher side. This yet-to-be-titled movie is a political thriller and the megastar will be playing the role of Kerala Chief Minister in it.
Director Santhosh Vishwanath in a recent interview revealed that is Mammootty is thrilled about playing the role of a chief minister. The last time he played a Minister’s role was back in 1991 in Sathyan Anthikad’s Nayam Vyekthamakunnu. Though he has played a chief minister’s role in Tamil film Makkal Aatchi, this will be his first such role in a Malayalam movie.
Bobby-Sanjay duo is among the finest writers in the industry at present; so the audience are expecting another quality film from them. Eventhough Santhosh Viswanath’s debut directorial Chirakodinja Kinavukal flopped at the box office, critics praised the director for his attempt to make Malayalam cinema’s first ever spoof film.
From the outset, the project looks very promising as a political film will be a refreshing change for Mammootty from the usual mass commercial entertainers. The movie’s official announcement is expected to be made very soon. Pre-production works are progressing and casting has not yet been finalized. The makers are planning to start shooting by the end of this year.
