The upcoming movie will reportedly be an entertainer scripted by Nishad Koya
Director Nadhirshah will soon be teaming up with his friend Aby’s son Shane Nigam for a movie. OTTplay has exclusively learnt that the movie will be scripted by Shikkari Shambu and Ordinary screenwriter Nishad Koya and could go on floors by the end of this year.
The director has completed two films in the past year – Dileep’s Kesu Ee Veedinte Nadhan and Jayasurya’s thriller Eesho. While the former is touted to be a theatrical release, we hear Eesho could have a direct-to-OTT release. However, Nadhirshah in an earlier interview told us that the team of Eesho are waiting for theatres to reopen and see the audience’s response to take the final call.
Nadhirshah, who had helmed back-to-back comedy entertainers such as Amar Akbar Antony, Kattapanayile Rithwik Roshan and Mera Naam Shaji, tackled the new genre of a thriller with Eesho. The movie, which was predominantly shot at night, had Kochi and Dubai as its main locations. Eesho, scripted by Suneesh Varanad, also has Namitha Pramod and Jaffer Idukki. Kesu Ee Veedinte Nadhan, meanwhile, is a family entertainer that has Dileep playing a 60-year-old. Urvashi, Ramesh Pisharody, Swasika and Vishnu Unnikrishnan are the other cast members of the film.
The upcoming movie will mark Nishad’s third project this year. The scriptwriter is also writing the script for Kunchacko Boban’s next with director Ajai Vasudev that is based on NN Pillai’s play titled Dam. Nishad is also the writer of Jayasurya’s first film with Joshiy, which will be made on a big budget and could also feature Nawazuddin Siddiqui as part of the cast.
Shane, meanwhile, has TK Rajeevkumar’s Bermuda ready for release along with Bhootha Kaalam, which has him sharing screen space with Revathy.
