Sibi Malayali-Ranjith combo’s new film with Asif Ali to begin next month
Earlier this month on the 22nd anniversary of ‘Summer in Bethlahem’, veterans Sibi Malayil and Ranjith announced that they are reuniting after two decades. Sibi Malayil is directing the film that will have Asif Ali in the lead. Ranjith is producing the film, which is yet to be titled.
Sibi Malayil and Asif Ali have earlier worked together in ‘Apoorvaragam’, ‘Violin’ and ‘Unnam’. Latest reports suggest their new film’s shoot will begin in October. Kozhikode will be the major location. Shoot will be conducted following all the Covid-19 safety protocols.
Asif Ali has several other promising projects lined up. He was shooting for Rajeev Ravi’s cop-thriller ‘Kuttavum Shikshayum’ when the lockdown was announced. He also has ‘Ellam Sheriyaakum’ with Jibu Jacob, ‘Thattum Vellattam’ with Mridul Nair, ‘Maheshum Maruthiyum’ with Sethu, ‘A Ranjith Cinema’ with Nishanth Sattu and an untitled film with M Padmakumar coming up.
RJ Mathukutty directorial ‘Kunjeldho’ is most likely to be Asif Ali’s next release.
