Mera Naam Shaji: Baiju, Asif Ali and Biju Menon to play the leads in Nadirshah’s next
After delivering back to back hits with ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ and ‘Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan’, cinephiles have been eagerly looking forward to Nadirshah’s next. There was a buzz that he would be teaming with Dileep soon, but the project has been put on hold for now. Nadirshah’s new film has been titled as ‘Mera Naam Shaji’ and it has Asif Ali, Biju Menon and Baiju playing the leads. Like the director’s earlier films, this upcoming one will also be a complete entertainer.
‘Mera Naam Shaji’ is the story of three people named Shaji from different parts of Kerala. While Baiju plays the Shaji from Trivandrum, Asif Ali is the Shaji from Ernakulam and Biju Menon’s character is from Kozhikode. Nikhila Vimal has been signed as the female lead. Veteran actor Sreenivasan will also been seen in a crucial role. The movie is scripted by Dileep, who had earlier directed the movie ‘Kadhayile Nayika’.
‘Mera Naam Shaji’ is planned to go on floors from the second week of November. Kozhikode, Trivandrum and Ernakulam will be the major locations. More details regarding the other cast and crew are expected to be officially announced very shortly.
