Mammootty to head to England for Ranjith’s Bilathikadha
Director Ranjith’s next film titled Bilathikadha stars youngsters in the lead role. The ace filmmaker has mostly helmed movies with big stars but for his next he has roped in relatively newcomers to play the lead roles. Niranj and Anu Sithara will be seen as the protagonists in this movie scripted by Sethu.
Megastar Mammootty is also doing a crucial role in the film. Though its a cameo role, its a very significant one in the plot. The movie will be shot completely in England. The team was supposed to travel next week but they have now postponed the dates owing to the chilling weather in UK.
Reportedly, Mammootty was the one who suggested Ranjith and crew to postpone the shoot as day time is very less during winter. He has advised the team to shoot in February during the spring season for capturing the visual beauty of the country.
The team along with Mammootty will be heading to England in February. The megastar has allotted ten days from his busy schedule for shooting his portions. Mammootty and Ranjith share a great rapport as they have previously worked together in several films like Kaiyyoppu, Paleri Manikyam: Oru Pathirakolapathakathinte Katha and Pranchiyettan and the Saint. The director’s last film Puthan Panam also had Mammootty in the lead.
Bilathikadha also stars Kaniha, Jewel Mary, Kalabhavan Shajon, Suresh Krishna,Dileesh Pothan and Kottayan Nazeer in supporting roles. Prashanth Nair will be cranking the camera and Sandeep is in charge of the edits. This upcoming movie is being produced by Maha Subair under the banner of Varnachitra Big Screen.
