Shabareesh Varma to turn a director this year!
The trend of actors turning filmmakers continues in Malayalam film industry. Noted actor and lyricist Shabareesh Varma is the latest to join the club as he is gearing up to make his directorial debut this year. He is also scripting the film, which is most likely to begin by mid-2020. Shabareesh himself revealed this in a recent interview with us.
Shabareesh made his acting debut with Alphonse Puthren’s Tamil-Malayalam ‘Neram’. He then played a full length role in ‘Premam’, where he played one of the sidekicks of lead actor, Nivin Pauly. He later starred in films like ‘Naam’, ‘Ladoo’ and ‘Thanneer Mathan Dhinangal’. His next release is ‘Mariyam Vannu Vilakkoothi’ which saw him reunite with the ‘Premam’ gang of actors — stars Siju Wilson, Krishna Shankar and Althaf Salim.
Meanwhile, there are talks within the industry suggesting that Nivin Pauly will be playing the lead in Shabareesh’s directorial debut but an official confirmation is still awaited. Considering the fact that they both have been friends since a long time, chances are high that such a project materialises.
