Shyamaprasad confirms teaming up with Mammootty!
We were among the first to report about Mammootty teaming up with Shyamaprasad for a film based on Sarah Joseph’s novel, ‘Aalohari Aanandam’. Though it’s been quite a while since the news first came, Shyamaprasad has confirmed that the project is indeed happening. In an interview to The Cue, the award-winning filmmaker revealed that he had been working on the script for the past three years.
‘Aalohari Anandam’, set in a large Christian household, dissects different faces of man-woman relationships as well as sexual orientation. Its story deals with the homosexuality of a married woman and the impact it has on her life and society.
Mammootty and Shyamaprasad have previously worked together in ‘Ore Kadal’, a widely acclaimed film that went on to be screened at numerous international film festivals, including IFFI. As he is reuniting with Mammootty after a long gap, the director is keen to try something different from their previous film. If all goes well, they might start shooting by June. Royal Cinemas is most likely to produce the film.
