Megastar Mammootty is arguably one of the most respected and sought-after stars in Malayalam cinema today. At present, he has several films in his kitty. And, one of them is director K Madhu’s ‘CBI 5’. The film was announced nearly four years ago but did not take off. Every year, we hear rumours of it being revived but nothing has happened yet. During a recent chat with a leading daily, the director said that Mammootty will make the final call on when ‘CBI 5’ will ultimately go on the floors.
“I am ready, we have already locked in a script by S N Swamy, the producers are confirmed and everything else is in place. But we are all waiting for Mammootty’s nod. We can’t go ahead without him,” he added.
Besides this, the filmmaker also spoke about his recently announced big budget films’ Anizham Thirunal Marthanda Varma: The King of Travancore’ and ‘Dharma Raja’ and said that formal announcements about both films will be made soon.
“We have fixed the hero of the film on Marthanda Varma and are now in talks for the second film’s hero. Once that is confirmed, both the actors and the producers will make the announcement through social media or a press meet,” he added.
Well, we wish him the very best and hope that his upcoming films fare well at the box office. On a related note, Mammootty will next be seen in ‘Peranbu’ and ‘Masterpiece’.
