Vishnu Unnikrishnan to play a prominent role in Mammootty’s upcoming political thriller!
As we had reported earlier, Bobby-Sanjay duo is scripting a political thriller for Mammootty. The movie which is to directed by ‘Chirakodinja Kinavukal’ fame Santhosh Vishwanath has the megastar playing the role of Kerala Chief Minister. The makers have roped in ‘Kattapanayile Rithwik Roshan’ fame Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Sreenivasan to play prominent roles in the movie.
This upcoming movie is about how a CM should be in today’s Kerala. It will showcase the discussions between a common youth and the State’s CM. Vishnu will be seen playing the former’s role in the movie. It is a performance oriented role and the youngster must be feeling proud to have bagged such a significant role alongside a veteran star like Mammootty.
Earlier, Vishnu was supposed to play a major role in Mammootty’s Streetlights but he had to opt out after getting injured while shooting for the film. He will be thanking his stars now for grabbing a second chance to share screen space with Mammootty.
Bobby-Sanjay duo is among the finest writers in the industry at present; so the audience can expect another quality film from them. Eventhough Santhosh Viswanath’s debut directorial, Chirakodinja Kinavukal, flopped at the box office, critics praised him for his attempt to make Malayalam cinema’s first ever spoof film.
Mammootty is playing a Minister’s role after 27 long years and the veteran is all excited about it. Though he has done a chief minister’s role in Tamil film Makkal Aatchi, this will be his first such role in a Malayalam movie. From the outset, the project looks very promising as a political film will be a refreshing change for Mammootty from the usual mass commercial entertainers.
The movie’s official announcement with details regarding the title and full cast and crew is expected to be made very soon. The makers are planning to go on floors by the end of this year, once Mammootty wraps up his ongoing commitments.
