Soubin Shahir to direct Mammootty next!
Soubin Shahir is arguably in the best phase of his career with a slew of exciting projects in his kitty. Apart from his acting assignments, Soubin, who assisted many senior filmmakers for over a decade, turned a director last year. His directorial debut, Parava, was a huge success both critically and commercially. Ever since its release, several rumours have been doing the rounds about Soubin’s next movie.
Our sources within the industry suggest that Soubin will be teaming up with none other than megastar Mammootty for his next film. A popular young star will also be part of the movie, initial works for which are currently progressing. It must be remembered that, after the release of Parava, Soubin had updated a photo with Mammootty in his Instagram handle and captioned it as ‘next’. If talks are to be believed, shoot for the movie will kick-start by the end of this year itself.
Mammootty meanwhile is busy shooting for his epic-period flick Mamankam. The movie directed by Sajeev Pillai is based on Mamankam and has the veteran star playing the lead role of a Chaaver (warrior). His next to hit screens is Abrahaminte Santhathikal, a cop-thriller, which is slated for a grand Eid release. Oru Kuttanadan Blog, directed by Sethu, is another movie coming up for Mammootty.
Khalid Rahman’s Unda, YSR biopic Yatra, an untitled political thriller with ‘Chirakodinja Kinavukal’ fame Santhosh Vishwanath, Vysakh’s Raja 2 and Kunjali Marakkar IV are some of Mammootty’s other upcoming movies.
