Mammootty will once again don the khaki and boots for director B Unnikrishnan’s upcoming big budget thriller. The movie had its pooja a few days ago and the megastar is expected to join the team this week.

The yet-to-be-titled film marks the second consecutive collaboration between Unnikrishnan and Udaykrishna after Mohanlal’s Aaraattu, which released in theatres earlier this year. The upcoming movie will reportedly have Mammootty playing a cop and will be in the same vein as Unnikrishnan’s investigative thriller Grandmaster, which had Mohanlal playing a veteran police officer.

In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Unnikrishnan had told us that the film will be a big budget movie with locations across the country and will also tackle a relevant subject while having elements that would also appeal to the megastar’s fans. He, however, said that it wouldn’t be an all-out ‘mass’ movie like Aaraattu.

Reports had also suggested that the movie will have three heroines – Amala Paul, Aishwarya Lekshmi and Sneha. While Sneha had previously acted with the megastar in Thuruppugulan and The Great Father, this will be the first time Amala and Aishwarya will be sharing screen space with Mammootty. Shine Tom Chacko, Jinu Joseph and Dileesh Pothan are also part of the cast.

Mammootty, meanwhile, had recently completed shooting for another thriller, Rorschach. The movie, helmed by Kettyolaanu Ente Malakha director Nisam Basheer, also has Sharafudheen and Grace Antony in pivotal roles. The film is currently expected to be an Onam release on September 7. The star is also awaiting the release of his next Telugu venture Agent, which has Akhil Akkineni in the lead. The movie, helmed by Surender Reddy, has Mammootty playing a RAW chief.

Meanwhile, Mammootty has also completed shooting for Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, which reportedly has him essaying the role of a thief. The film is expected to tour the festival circuit before it has a commercial release.
