Vijay Superum Pournamiyum: Asif Ali’s next with Jis Joy to start rolling by July!
There was a time when Asif Ali was known for doing the most number of movies in a year in Malayalam cinema. But of late, the actor has been very choosy and has cut down the number of projects. This year, he has had only one release so far – B Tech and the movie is doing fairly well in the theatres. He also has Mandharam and Iblis coming up.
Asif Ali is also teaming up with director Jis Joy for a new movie titled Vijay Superum Pournamiyum. This is the actor-director duo’s third outing together after Bicycle Thieves and Sunday Holiday. While Bicycle Thieves was an average grosser, Sunday Holiday, released last year, was a superhit success. It was one of the biggest hits in Mollywood last year. The movie enjoyed a theatrical run of over 100 days in a good number of centres.
For their upcoming movie, Vijay Superum Pouranamiyum, the makers have signed Mamta Mohandas as the female lead. This will be her second film with Asif after a gap of nine long years. They last played a pair in Sathyan Anthikad’s Katha Thudarunnu.
While Bicycle Thieves was a thriller, Sunday Holiday was a fun feel-good entertainer. So, it will be interesting to see what the director has come up with in Vijay Superum Pournamiyum. Shoot for the movie will kick-start by July once Asif and Mamta are free from their ongoing commitments. Stay tuned to this space for more updates.
