Ottu: Kunchacko Boban and Arvind Swamy team up for a bilingual film
Kunchacko Boban and Arvind Swamy are coming together for the first time for a Tamil-Malayalam film. The Malayalam version has reportedly been titled as ‘Ottu’. ‘Theevandi’ fame TP Fellini is directing the film and it is penned by S Sajeevan. The film is produced by August Cinema headed by Arya and Shaji Nadesan. The makers are planning to start shooting later this month. Goa, Mumbai and Mangalore have been finalized as the major locations.
‘Ottu’ is Arvind Swamy’s third film in Malayalam after ‘Daddy’ and ‘Devaraagam’. His comeback film is said to be a thriller. Since it is a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual, actors from both the languages are expected to be part of the film. Talented young composer AH Kaashif, who is the nephew of maestro AR Rahman, has been signed as the music director. It is his second Malayalam film after making his debut with ‘Pathinettam Padi’, also produced by August Cinemas.
