‘Big B’ is one of the biggest hit films in the Malayalam film industry and changed the dynamics of the industry. Besides Mammootty, ‘Big B’ also stars Nafisa Ali, Manoj K Jayan, Bala Kumar, Lena, Mamta Mohandas and Innocent in pivotal roles. The music of ‘Big B’ was composed by Gopi Sunder and was one of the biggest hit albums of those times. Expectations around the sequel, ‘Bilal’, are quite high since the combination of Mammootty and Amal Neerad had delivered a great film almost a decade ago.
Mammootty will also be seen in a film on ‘Kunjari Marakkar’ with the same title which will be directed by Santosh Sivan. Santosh Sivan had recently announced that the film will go on floors soon and they are looking to release it in 2018.
