Raai Laxmi to work with Mammootty for the fifth time
It is already known that writer Sethu is making his directorial debut with Mammootty. The movie is said to be titled as Kozhi Thankachan and will have three female leads. Anu Sithara and Nee-na fame Deepti Sati have already been confirmed. Reportedly, Lakshmi Rai, who recently changed her name to Raai Laxmi Raai, has been roped in as the other heroine.
Kozhi Thankachan will be her fifth film with Mammootty after sharing screen space with him in Parunth, Annan Thambi, Chattambinadu and Rajadhiraja. Kozhi Thankachan is touted to be a rural entertainer that will have much prominence to humour. Mammootty will be seen as a totally relatable role of an ordinary villager in this movie. It is being planned to be shot extensively in Kuttanad and nearby areas.
An interesting aspect of Kozhi Thankachan is that actor Unni Mukundan will be working in it as an associate director. He will be assisting Sethu with whom he is very close ever since the Mallu Singh days.
Meanwhile, Mammootty’s Onam release Pullikkaran Staraa continues to do good business across all the centres. His next release will be Masterpiece, a mass entertainer directed by Ajai Vasudev. Shamdat’s debut directorial Streetlights, ad filmmaker Sharrath Sandith’s Parole, Ram’s Tamil-Malayalam bilingual Peranbu and Shaji Padoor’s Abrahaminte Santhathikal : A Police Story are some of the other projects in Mammootty’s kitty.
