Vineeth Sreenivasan to direct Pranav Mohanlal and Kalyani Priyadarshan in Chithram sequel?
As reported by us earlier, Vineeth Sreenivasan is set to direct a film with Pranav Mohanlal and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the leads. Antony Perumbavoor will be producing the film under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. We hear that Vineeth has already signed the dotted lines and full fledged shoot has been planned to commence early next year.
Meanwhile, there is an exciting buzz going around in social medias that this new film will be a sequel to the 1988 classic ‘Chithram’. Ace filmmaker Priyadarshan wrote and directed the film that had superstar Mohanlal in the lead. Sreenivasan also played a major role in it. If the news about the sequel is indeed true, it will be a second generation reunion of sorts.
Needless to say, Vineeth Sreenivasan will be shouldering a huge burden of expectations as ‘Chithram’ is widely regarded as one of the biggest ever blockbusters in Malayalam cinema. Not just Vineeth, new gen actors Pranav and Kalyani, who both are still trying to find their feet in the field of cinema, will be facing a lot of expectations and comparisons are also bound to be there.
For now, let’s just wait for an official confirmation to see they are really planning a sequel to ‘Chithram’.
