Roshan Mathew and Darshana Rajendran in Aashiq Abu’s Pennum Cherukkanum
Directors Aashiq Abu, Venu, Rajeev Ravi and Jay R Krishnan are coming together for an anthology flick that will have four female centric stories. Aashiq’s film titled as ‘Pennum Cherukkanum’ has Roshan Mathew and Darshana Rajendran in the lead roles. Unni R has scripted the film, which is based on a popular short story.
Roshan Mathew is fresh from the success of ‘Moothon’, his performance in which was widely appreciated. Darshana Rajendran is noted for her roles in ‘Mayaanadhi’ and ‘Virus’, both directed by Aashiq Abu. Scriptwriter Benny P Nayarambalam, Nedumudi Venu, Kaviyoor Ponnamma and Basil Joseph are also part of ‘Pennum Cherukkanum’. Shyju Khalid has done the cinematography. We hear that shoot has already been wrapped up.
Jay K, who previously made the horror-thriller ‘Ezra’ fame, has also completed the shoot of his film. Scripted by Santhosh Echikanam, the film is set in the 50s and has Samyuktha Menon and Joju George in the lead roles.
Cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Venu’s segment in the anthology is based on Sahitya Akademi Award winning writer Uroob’s popular short story ‘Rachiyamma’. Parvathy and Asif Ali are playing the lead roles in it. Rajeev Ravi is likely to start works on his film only after the completion of ‘Thuramukham’.
