The Super Star of Malayalam cinema Mammootty is currently busy working on Ajai Vasudevan’s directorial project which is titled Masterpiece. Mammootty will be seen playing a stringent college lecturer in this film. Besides Masterpiece, Mammootty has also given his nod to be a part of debutant director Sethu’s film which is yet to be titled. Sethu has worked on many Malayalam films as a writer and this film with Mammootty will mark his debut as a director. News has it that Mammootty has also signed another film with debutant director Sharrath Sandith, who has worked with Mammootty on many ad films.
This untitled film will be based on real life incidents. Speaking to a leading daily, Sharrath said,” The movie is based on true events and has a moving story. However, I want to keep Mammukka’s character and the plot under wraps.” The Great Father actress Miya will also be a part of this film as per the director. Speaking about it Sharrath said,” Miya plays one of the actresses and we will be finalising the other in a week’s time.”
The details of the rest of the cast will be announced soon and the shooting will commence in the first week of June in Bengaluru. “We are planning to film it in two schedules – 25 days in Bangalore and the rest in Kerala,” Sharrath said.
Sharrath also said that the film will be a different genre and Mammotty will be seen in a different look. “I have always tried to showcase varied styles of presentation through my ad films with Mammukka. This movie too will have a classy presentation,” added Sharrath.
Mammootty is one of the few actors in Malayalam cinema who has always encouraged new talent and has introduced many directors through his films.
