Neerali release postponed!
While Mohanlal fans were all excited about the release of Neerali, here comes a disappointing news for them. As per latest reports, the movie’s release has been postponed to a further date in wake of the Nipah outbreak in the Malabar regions. The much-awaited FIFA world cup, which is scheduled from 14 June to 15 July, is also said to be another reason for pushing the release date.
Neerali directed by Ajoy Varma is touted to be an action-packed adventure thriller. The movie scripted by Saju Thomas has Mohanlal playing the role of Sunny George, a gemologist by profession. Nadhiya Moidu, who is making her comeback to Malayalam, is playing his wife in the movie.
Suraj Venjaramoodu, Parvathi Nair, Dileesh Pothan, Sai Kumar, Bineesh Kodiyeri, Megha Mathew, and Nasser are part of the supporting cast. Neerali’s technical crew includes noted Bollywood cinematographer Santhosh Thundiyil and composer Stephen Devassy. Director Ajoy Varma is handling the edits with Sajit Unnikrishnan. Santhosh T Kuruvilla’s Moonshot Entertainment is co-producing the movie jointly with John Thomas and Mibu Jose Nettikdan. The makers are yet to officially announce the new release date.
It remains to be seen if other movies slated to hit screens for Eid also follow suit and postpone their release dates. Mammootty’s Abrahaminte Santhathikal and Prithviraj’s long-delayed My Story are the other two biggies lined up for Eid.
