Neeraj Madhav to play a crucial role in Mammootty’s Mamankam
As we had reported recently, the first schedule of Mammootty’s period flick Mamankam will start rolling in February. The movie marks the directorial debut of Sajeev Pillai, a former associate of the legendary Adoor Gopalakrishnan. Venu Kunnampilly’s Kavya Films is backing this big budget project.
The makers are currently busy with the casting process. As per latest reports, promising young actor Neeraj Madhav has bagged a crucial role in the movie. But, the makers have not yet revealed details about his character. Neeraj was last seen in Paipin Chuvattile Pranayam, in which he played the lead. His matured performance in the movie was appreciated by the critics as well as the commoners.
Neeraj must be thanking his stars for landing him a role in such a high profile project like Mamankam. ‘Queen’ fame Dhruvan is also part of the movie. The youngster was highly impressive with his performance in Queen. Mamankam is sure to provide a big break for the actor.
Some big stars from other industries will also be part of Mamankam, but their names will be revealed only after the first leg of shoot is over in February. This upcoming schedule is only a brief one, full fledged shoot will begin only by May.
Mamankam is a spectacle-heavy movie, so the makers are getting on board some of the best availabe technicians in the country. VFX works will be headed by RC Kamala Kannan, who has worked in several big projects in South Indian cinema. M Jayachandran has already been confirmed as the composer. Some other leading technicians are also expected to associate with this highly ambitious project.
