The movie, which is touted to be an entertainer, is set to go on floors soon
After almost seven years since his directorial debut, filmmaker Ajai Vasudev is gearing up to do a movie without Mammootty in the lead. The filmmaker, who had helmed RajadhiRaja, Masterpiece and Shylock, will next be teaming up with Kunchacko Boban for an entertainer.
While everything about the movie is kept under wraps, actor Jagadish tells OTTplay that he has allotted his dates for Ajai’s film which has Kunchacko in the lead. Jagadish has a meaty role in the movie, which is set to go on floors soon.
Earlier this year, Jagadish had also worked in Kamal KM’s Pada, which also has Kunchacko Boban as part of the lead cast. The movie is based on the 1996 real-life incident of four members of the Ayyankali Pada holding the then Palakkad district collector WR Reddy hostage. Apart from Kunchacko and Jagadish, the movie also has Joju George, Vinayakan, Prakash Raj and Dileesh Pothan as part of the cast.
Kunchacko, meanwhile, recently completed his shoot for the Malayalam-Tamil bilingual Ottu, which is titled Rendagam in Tamil. The big budget movie marks Arvind Swami’s comeback in Malayalam after 25 years and Kunchacko’s debut in Tamil. The film, directed by Theevandi filmmaker Fellini TP, also has Jackie Shroff in the pivotal role.
Kunchacko also has C U Soon and Malik director Mahesh Narayanan’s Ariyippu coming up. The actor will be co-producing the movie, which will be shot in Kochi. He also has a movie with Jayasurya set to go on floors by the end of the year and another film titled Nna, Thaan Case Kodu directed by Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval.
On Kunchacko’s character in Nna Thaan Case Kodu, Ratheesh had earlier told us, “The crux of the film is Kunchacko Boban’s character taking a small issue to the court and trying to defend his case. The movie is a courtroom drama, in which 80% of the film happens inside a court.”
