Aadu and Anjaam Pathiraa filmmaker Midhun Manuel Thomas has begun shooting for his next film, which is a comedy. The movie is produced by Vijay Babu’s Friday Film House that had earlier backed the filmmaker’s movies such as Aadu and Aadu 2. 

Talking to OTTplay about the movie, Vijay Babu tells us, “We are not revealing the cast right now. It’s a feel-good film with humour at its centre. The shoot of the film is currently progressing in Wayanad and Midhun has also scripted the film. The crew of the film consists of relatively new people.”

Before the pandemic, Midhun and Friday Film House were set to collaborate again for Aadu 3, which was reportedly planned on a much bigger scale than the previous two movies. However, the film seems to be pushed back owing to the pandemic restrictions. Midhun also had plans to start work on Turbo Peter with Jayasurya, but the movie too seems to be on backburner. 

Meanwhile, Vijay Babu has already released two movies on OTT – Jayasurya’s Sufiyum Sujatayum and Indrans’ #Home. In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Vijay Babu talked about holding his films for theatrical viz-a-viz OTT releases. 

“I have actually completed Theerpu; I have also produced the biggest experimental film in my life, Valatty, which revolves around dogs. So, all of that is done with the hope that everything will be back to normal in the future. Similarly, I am also aware that a film like #Home is more suitable for OTT and that’s why the streamers were interested in it. Theerpu though can wait till theatres reopen; but even that has a limit. I also have plans to do Aadu 3 and have bought the rights for actor Sathyan’s biopic. I don’t decide a budget and then search for scripts, it’s the other way round,” he said.
