National award winners Bobby-Sanjay’s next is with Mammootty!
Mammootty has a number of projects lined up next year. In January, he will start shooting for Abrahaminte Santhathikal, which marks the directorial debut of Shaji Padoor, a veteran associate director who has been industry for over 15 years. Haneef Adeni of ‘The Great Father’ fame is scripting the film. Mamankam, Kunjali Marakkar IV, Vysakh’s Raja 2 and Basil Joseph’s next are some of the other films in the pipeline
If reports are to be believed, Mammootty has signed for yet another project. Santhosh Viswanath, who made an impressive debut with Chirakodinja Kinavukal, will be directing this upcoming movie. The National award winning duo of Bobby and Sanjay are scripting the film, which is said to be a serious political thriller. Mammootty is reportedly playing the role of a chief minister in the movie.
From the outset, the project looks very promising as a political film will be a refreshing change for Mammootty from the usual mass commercial entertainers. Bobby-Sanjay duo is among one of the finest writers in the industry at present and so the audience can expect another quality film from them. Eventhough director Santhosh Viswanath’s debut film Chirakodinja Kinavukal flopped at the box office, critics praised the director for his attempt to make Malayalam cinema’s first ever spoof film.
The movie’s official announcement is expected to be made in January. Pre-production works are progressing and casting has not yet been finalized. Reportedly, the makers are planning to go on floors by the end of March.
