Release date of Shane Nigam’s Veyil announced
Shane Nigam’s long delayed film ‘Veyil’ is finally getting ready for release. The makers have announced that the film will be hitting screens on June 4. Debutant Sarath Menon is directing the film and Joby George of Goodwill Entertainments is producing it.
From the film’s trailer, it looks like a coming-of-age story of a youngster named Siddharth. ‘Angamaly Diaries’ fame Merin Jose Pottackal, James Eliya, Shine Tom Chacko, Sudhi Koppa and many others are part of the supporting cast. On the technical front, popular Tamil playback singer Pradeep Kumar is composing music for this film. Camera is cranked by Shaz Mohammed and Praveen Prabhakar is handling the edits.
‘Veyil’ was in the news for all the wrong reasons. It all started when Shane Nigam made severe allegations against producer Joby George of giving him death threats. The producer on his part accused Shane of unprofessional behaviour. Finally after the intervention of various parties, shoot resumed. However, things worsened when Shane walked out of the location and shaved his hair as a 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.
