New release date of Shane Nigam’s Veyil announced
Shane Nigam’s long delayed film ‘Veyil’ is finally set for release. The makers have announced that the film will be hitting theatres on January 28, 2022. Debutant Sarath Menon is directing the film and Joby George of Goodwill Entertainments is producing it.
During its production, ‘Veyil’ was in the news for all the wrong reasons. Shane Nigam had then made severe allegations against producer Joby George of giving him death threats. The producer in turn accused Shane of unprofessional behaviour, which eventually stalled shoot. Works resumed after the intervention of various parties. However, things worsened when Shane walked out of the location and shaved his hair as a mark of protest against the crew. This eventually lead to the youngster getting a temporary ban from Malayalam film industry. All the issues were settled after multiple rounds of discussions. The makers will be hoping that all the struggle and efforts that went behind the making of ‘Veyil’ is worth it.
From the trailer, the film looks like a coming-of-age story of a youngster named Siddharth. ‘Angamaly Diaries’ fame Merin Jose Pottackal, James Eliya, Shine Tom Chacko, Sreerekha Sudhi Koppa and many others are part of the supporting cast. At the 51st Kerala State Awards, Sreerekha had won the award for Best Character Actor (Female).
