Unni Mukundan plays a full-length role alongside Nivin Pauly in ‘Mikhael’
As we already know, Nivin Pauly and Unni Mukundan are coming together for the Haneef Adeni directorial, ‘Mikhael’. While Nivin plays the lead role, the makers have been tight-lipped about Unni Mukundan’s role, which has naturally raised the curiosity. Speculations are rife that he is essaying a negative role. In a recent interview, the actor revealed that his character in the movie is named Marco Jr and it’s a full length role. The actor sounded quite excited about being part of the movie.
About working with Nivin, Unni is quoted saying, “He’s a good friend and it’s great to work with him in a role that is there throughout the film.” The two actors have earlier shared screen space in Lal Jose’s ‘Vikramadithyan’, where Nivin did a guest role.
‘Mikhael’ is a highly anticipated movie as Haneef Adeni’s earlier two works, ‘The Great Father’ and ‘Abrahaminte Santhathikal’, were hugely successful at the box office. The director is noted for his stylish filmmaking and from the promos ‘Mikhael’ also promises to be on similar lines.
The movie, according to the makers, is a family-oriented thriller. Nivin plays a doctor in the movie. Manjima Mohan, JD Chakravarthy, Siddique, Renji Panicker, Ashokan, Shanthi Krishna, Kalabhavan Shajon and KPAC Lalitha are also part of the cast. Anto Joseph is producing the movie under his banner Anto Joseph Film Company. It is expected to hit screens early next year.
