The movie, which is the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun, is helmed by Ravi K Chandran
The shoot for Prithviraj’s Bhramam, which is the Malayalam remake of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Andhadhun, has been completed. The team had to shoot the tail-end portions of the movie and a song – both of which were done a few days ago.
Bhramam is directed by cinematographer Ravi K Chandran and also has Raashi Khanna, Mamta Mohandas, Unni Mukundan, Shankar and Ananya in pivotal roles. The movie went on floors early this year but the final schedule was delayed due to the surging cases of COVID-19 in Kerala.
While its director Chandran also handled its cinematography, the tail-end portions were shot by Jomon T John, who recently worked with Prithviraj in Cold Case as its co-producer.
In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Prithviraj talked about remaking a film as popular as Andhadhun. “The challenge is that it’s a hugely popular film and that’s what is exciting about it as well… I think it’s important that content not only travels from South to North. I think it’s crucial that down the line when a filmmaker makes a movie and that content can travel, it shouldn’t just be that South films are being remade. It would be nice to have the other way round too. I think Andhadhun as a film has content that lends itself very well to Malayalam. I hope I will be proven right when you see the movie,” he told us.
Andhadhun is also being remade in Tamil and Telugu. In the Tamil version titled Andhagan, Prashanth plays the lead. Nithiin plays the protagonist in the Telugu remake titled Maestro.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj will now start work on the pre-production of his second directorial titled Bro Daddy, which stars Mohanlal, Murali Gopy, Soubin Shahir, Kalyani Priyadarshan and Lalu Alex.
