Director Ratheesh Balakrishnan Poduval’s Alien Aliyan, the sequel to the much-acclaimed Android Kunjappan Ver 5.25, will have Tovino Thomas as part of the cast too. Apart from the star, the film will also have a few members from the original film returning.

In an interview with The Cue, the filmmaker said that Tovino will be part of the movie, which will focus primarily on the robot that was abandoned at the end of the first film. Suraj Venjaramoodu and Soubin Shahir, who played the father-son duo in the first movie, are also expected to star in cameos in the upcoming movie, which will also have a few portions shot outside India.

Ratheesh had earlier said that Alien Aliyan belongs to the sci-fi genre and would require extensive pre-production before it goes on floors. The makers will also look into the pandemic situation before they can begin filming.

The director also has Kanakam Kaamini Kalaham gearing up for release. The movie, which has Nivin Pauly, Vinay Forrt, Grace Antony, Rajesh Madhavan and Joy Mathew, is touted to belong to the absurdist humour genre and was shot in a hotel in Kochi during the lockdown last year. Ratheesh also has Nna… Thaan Case Kodu, which has him teaming up with Kunchacko Boban, Vinay and Saiju Kurup.

Tovino, meanwhile, has wrapped up shooting for Aashiq Abu’s Naradhan, which also has Anna Ben, and Manu Ashokan’s Kaanekkane, which has Aishwarya Lekshmi, Suraj Venjaramoodu and Shruti Ramachandran. The actor is also part of Basil Joseph’s superhero film Minnal Murali. The movie’s digital rights after its theatrical release have already been sold for a record price to Netflix.
