Mammootty and Sreenivasan team up for a political thriller
As we had reported earlier, Bobby-Sanjay duo is scripting a political thriller for Mammootty. The movie which is to directed by ‘Chirakodinja Kinavukal’ fame Santhosh Vishwanath has the megastar playing the role of Kerala Chief Minister. Veteran actor Sreenivasan is the latest addition to the movie’s cast.
Sreenivasan, who is well known for scripting political satires and his roles as political activists, will be playing an entirely different role in this upcoming movie. He will be seen as a politically ignorant guy, who is least bothered about the political scenario in the State.
‘Kattapanayile Rithwik Roshan’ fame Vishnu Unnikrishnan will also be seen in a crucial role in the movie. Apparently, the movie is about how a CM should be in today’s Kerala. It will showcase the discussions between a common youth and the State’s CM. Vishnu will be seen playing the former’s role in the movie. Renji Panicker has also been cast in a prominent role as Mammootty’s friend.
Bobby and Sanjay are among the finest writers in the industry at present; so the audience are expecting nothing but a quality film from them. Eventhough Santhosh Viswanath’s debut directorial, Chirakodinja Kinavukal, flopped at the box office, critics praised him for his daring attempt to make what is Malayalam cinema’s first ever spoof film.
The movie’s official announcement with details regarding the title and full cast and crew is expected to be made very soon. The makers are planning to go on floors by the end of this year, once Mammootty wraps up all his ongoing commitments.
