‘The Pirates of Diego Garcia’ to be made on a much bigger scale than ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’
As we had reported earlier, Nivin Pauly and Rosshan Andrrews are planning to make a big budget period movie with sea as the backdrop. The movie has been titled as ‘The Pirates of Diego Garcia’ and initial works for it are currently underway. It is said to be the dream project of the actor-director duo and they will also be funding this movie.
Rosshan Andrrews is scripting the movie after doing some research works. Interestingly, this is also the director’s maiden outing as a scriptwriter. Initially, writer Unni R was supposed to script the movie but he later opted out due to some unknown reasons. The movie is said to be a survival story based on some true events that occurred in the pre-independence era. Several foreign technicians will be associated with this project.
Meanwhile, ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’ continues to do extraordinary business at all the centres. Releasing on October 11, the movie opened to massive numbers at the box office. As per the makers, the movie has earned a whopping Rs 34 crores in just four days of its theatrical run. It is well on course to become one of the highest grossing Malayalam movies all time.
The massive success of ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’ is certain to inspire Rosshan and Nivin to invest more on their upcoming movie.
