Mollywood actor Amith Chakalakkal is set to team up again with Djibouti director SJ Sinu for his next titled Theru. The film’s title poster was released today through the cast members’ social media pages. 

Amith, who had earlier collaborated with Sinu in Djibouti, tells OTTplay that the upcoming movie will be a family thriller. “The movie revolves around an issue that every youngster in Kerala faces when they are on the road. It touches upon the harassment they face from police or the government and mirrors the reality in the society,” he says. 

Incidentally, Amith’s Yuvam, which released in theatres earlier this year, also revolved on a socially-relevant subject. Point that out to him and he says, “When you hear a socially-relevant subject, you connect to it better, especially when it is about incidents that we encounter in our daily lives. I guess that’s why I pick such films.”

Theru, which also has Baburaj, Kalabhavan Shajohn, Vijayaraghavan, Sreejith Ravi and Prashanth Alexander as part of the cast, will begin its shoot on September 1 in Palakkad. 

Amith, meanwhile, has also completed the shoot of Indrajith Sukumaran-starrer Aaha and Djibouti. On the delayed release of these films, the actor tells us, “We want to release both movies in theatres, despite there being good interest from OTT platforms for Aaha and Djibouti. That’s why we are waiting. Djibouti, in particular, will be released in five languages and we are planning to release trailers in all these languages too.”
