The movie, which is directed by Dijo Jose Antony, wrapped up its penultimate schedule on Wednesday
The teaser of Dijo Jose Antony’s Jana Gana Mana, which has Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead, created a lot of hype when it was released earlier this year. The movie, which went on floors last year, has now completed its penultimate schedule in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.
While most of its cast and the plot has been kept under wraps, director Dijo tells OTTplay that Mamta Mohandas is also part of the movie. “We just completed a schedule of the film in Thiruvananthapuram where we shot Mamta’s portions too,” he says.
The team is expected to wrap up the shooting of the film next month. “We have 10 more days of shoot left, which will be gone outside Kerala, mostly in Lucknow. Prithviraj will join the team for those portions and Surajettan also has two more days of shoot left. We have a few crowd scenes in the film and that’s why it has been delayed,” explains the director, adding that the team had earlier shot in Kochi and Mangalore.
The movie reportedly has Prithviraj playing a lawyer, while Suraj essays the role of a cop. Apart from Prithviraj, Suraj and Mamta, the film also has “several actors from Tamil and Telugu”, informs Dijo, who had previously helmed Queen.
Meanwhile, Mamta is also part of Prithviraj’s Bhramam, which is the Malayalam remake of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Andhadhun. Mamta will reportedly play the role essayed by Tabu in the Bollywood movie.
Prithviraj, who had gone to Dubai to accept UAE’s 10-year Golden Visa, and is expected to be back in Kerala, after a short vacation, to begin shooting for Alphonse Puthren’s Gold. The movie has Nayanthara as the female protagonist.
