Mollywood actor Joju George has been going from strength to strength in the past few years and it’s hardly surprising that some of the top directors in the industry are vying with each other for the actor’s dates. Joju, who had starred in this year’s top releases such as One, Nayattu, Malik and Jagame Thandhiram, will next be joining hands with director Rajeev Ravi in the filmmaker’s upcoming movie.
Joju confirmed this to OTTplay. This is not the first time that Joju is teaming up with Rajeev. The duo had worked together in the period drama Thuramukham, when Joju had replaced Biju Menon, who had opted out of the film due to scheduling conflicts.
In Thuramukham, the actor plays the character of Mymoo. The film revolves around the uprisings of labourers in the Cochin port against the chappa system in the 40s and 50s.
Thuramukham also has Nivin Pauly, Nimisha Sajayan, Indrajith, Darshana Rajendran and Arjun Ashokan in pivotal roles. The movie was set for a May 13 release this year but it had to be postponed due to the pandemic situation in Kerala, which has prevented theatres from reopening.
Meanwhile, Rajeev has also finished work on Kuttavum Shikshayum, which has Asif Ali, Sunny Wayne and Sharafudheen along with Alencier Ley Lopez. Rumours are rife that the makers are planning for a direct-to-OTT release for the film on Netflix.
However, when OTTplay reached out to Rajeev, the filmmaker told us, “That’s news to me. There has not been any confirmation about Thuramukham or Kuttavum Shikshayum’s release as yet.”
Kuttavum Shikshayum is based on a real-life story of a group of cops from Kerala who go in hunt of criminals to North India. The movie was shot extensively in Rajasthan.
