Mukesh to make his directorial debut; Who will play the lead?
Mukesh is a multi-faceted star who has been successfully juggling between movies, hosting television shows, literature and politics. The veteran actor who is also a MLA, was last seen in Sathyan Anthikad’s Jomonte Suvisheshangal.
He played Dulquer Salmaan’s father in the movie. His performance as Vincent, a rich businessman who at one point hits rock bottom, is rated as one of his finest performance in his three decade long career. The movie has become a great success thanks to the endearing father-son chemistry between Mukesh and Dulquer.
Mukesh in a recent interview, revealed that he had plans to make his directorial debut two years back. But his political commitments, put a temporary full stop to his directorial dreams. However, the veteran has not stepped back. He will soon be turning into a filmmaker.
Mukesh said, “Yes, I was about to make my directorial debut. But then I became a candidate and MLA, making my schedule tighter and tighter. I have been planning it for a while and very soon you will see me as a director,” he said.
Speculations are already rife about who will play the lead in Mukesh’s directorial venture. The Big M’s, Mohanlal and Mammootty have co-starred in several movies with Mukesh. So there are chances for Mukesh casting one of them for his directorial debut. We firmly believe that his movie will be a out and out fun entertainer, as the actor is known for his guileless and spontaneous humour. So it will only be fitting if he helms one such subject for his debut movie.
Mukesh will be next seen in Dileep’s political thriller Ramaleela and Shyamaprasad’s Hey Jude starring Nivin Pauly and Trisha in the lead.
