Surya TV buys the broadcast rights of Mammootty’s Abrahaminte Santhathikal for a huge amount!
Mammootty is currently shooting in Kochi for his upcoming movie, Abrahaminte Santhathikal – A Police Story. The movie marks the directorial debut of Shaji Padoor, a veteran who has been in the industry for over two decades as an associate director. Haneef Adeni, the director of last year’s blockbuster movie ‘The Great Father’ is scripting this movie.
Shooting for the movie is only halfway, despite that market leader Surya TV has bagged its satellite rights for a huge amount. It was officially announced via the channel’s official Twitter handle. The exact amount has not been disclosed but it is said to be one of the highest for Mammootty’s movies. Recently, the broadcast rights of his upcoming movie Uncle was also sold for a huge price.

Cinematography is being handled by Alby and Gopi Sunder is in charge of the music department. Mahesh Narayanan, who turned a director last year with the widely acclaimed ‘Take Off’, is editing the movie. Joby George is funding Abrahaminte Santhathikal under the banner of Goodwill Entertainment. The makers are reportedly planning for a June release.
