It has been a strange situation indeed. We are talking about the news regarding an upcoming Mollywood film based on the real life character of Saji from Thodupuzha who is dumb and deaf and who had made an aeroplane out of his love to fly high. There has been a report came earlier that Vineeth Sreenivasan is agreed to do the character of Saji after he finishes the directorial venture of his with Nivin Pauly in the lead named Jacobonte Swarga Rajyam. They said that a debutant director Sreekanth Murali will make the film with Vineeth Sreenivasan in the lead.
As per reports Sreekanth Murali had communicated with Saji and went to meet him as well. After that he approached Vineeth Sreenivasan and he agreed to do it. But just days after the breaking of this news another news came in that Prithviraj Sukumaran is all set to play the character of Saji under the direction of Pradeep M Nair.
That report said that the film will be titled as Vimanam and it will start rolling from 2016 January. Now it’s very strange and confusing for the readers as well. Because the first report said that it will be Vineeth Sreenivasan who will do the role of Saji under the direction of Sreekanth Murali who worked as the assistant director Priyadarshan and he also worked as an ad film maker. Another report that came later said that the character will be played by Prithviraj Sukumaran under the direction of another director named Pradeep M Nair.
Now we have to find out only one thing that is this news is came out because of any mistake or actually two films directed by two different directors is coming based on the same theme. If that was the situation then it will be happening like that first time in Malayalam cinema and it will be interesting watch it as well. In Bollywood it had happened as the life of Bhagath Singh was made in to film by different directors with different actors in the lead.
