Mammootty joins the second schedule of Mamankam!
As we had reported earlier, the second schedule of Mammootty’s upcoming biggie Mamankam is currently progressing in Kochi. Though it has been a week since shoot commenced, Mammootty joined the team only last day. Huge sets of palaces have been erected in the city where major portions are currently being shot.
Sajeev Pillai has scripted Mamankam after doing research works for nearly twelve years. The movie is based on the medieval fair, Mamankam, where brave warriors from across the country would come together to showcase their skills at combat. Mammootty plays a ‘Chaaver’ (warrior) in this movie, which revolves around the life of these warriors who plot to defeat the Zamorin rulers.
Mamankam has a huge star cast with several non-Malayali actors in it. Bollywood actress Prachi Desai, Prachi Tehlan, Malavika Menon and former Miss Tamil Nadu Abhirami V Iyer have reportedly been signed as the female leads. Neeraj Madhav, ‘Queen’ fame Dhruv, Sunil Sukhada, Meghanathan and Sohan Seenulal are already confirmed in the supporting cast. Arvind Swamy is also rumoured to be part of the movie but we are still waiting for an official confirmation.
Mamankam’s technical crew includes renowned cinematographer Ganesh Rajavelu a.k.a Jim Ganesh, action choreographer Kaecha Khamphakdee, music director M Jayachandran and VFX supervisor Kamala Kannan, who has worked in several big projects in South Indian cinema. Venu Kunnampilly of Kavya Films is producing this ambitious project.
