The title of Mammootty’s latest movie, which is helmed by cinematographer-turned-director Roby Varghese Raj was let out by the megastar during a recent interview with a Tamil channel during the promotions of Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam.

The movie, which is currently being shot, is written by actor Rony David Raj and Muhammed Shafi. Rony had earlier shared screen space with the megastar in movies such as Daddy Cool, Best Actor and The Great Father, and is also Roby’s brother.

The film, which will have Mammootty once again essaying the role of a police officer, is reportedly titled Kannur Squad. Mammootty revealed this during the interview, while mentioning his upcoming movies that also include B Unnikrishnan’s Christopher, Jeo Baby’s Kaathal – The Core and Surender Reddy’s Agent.

Kannur Squad, which marks Mammootty Kampany’s fourth production venture after Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, Rorschach and Kaathal, went on floors by the end of December at Pala. Apart from Mammootty, the movie also has Rony, Deepak Parambol, Vijayaraghavan, Shabareesh Varma and Azees Nedumangad in pivotal roles.

Mammootty’s recent release Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, which hit theatres on January 19 and is directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery, opened to largely positive reviews. The film had the actor essaying the role of a Malayali theatre artiste, who seems to be possessed by a Tamil villager’s spirit after waking up from a siesta on his way back from Velankanni to Kerala.

Up next, Mammootty is all set for the release of Christopher, which also has him playing the role of a police officer. The multi-starrer, which also has Aishwarya Lekshmi, Amala Paul, Sneha, Dileesh Pothan, Vinay Rai and Shine Tom Chacko, revolves around a series of crimes that Mammootty’s titular character of a police chief has to investigate. Christopher is currently expected to hit theatres on February 9.

The actor has also completed shooting for Kaathal and Agent – both of which are expected to release by mid 2023.
