Mammootty set to reprise his old roles
The actor will be revisiting three of his famous characters for two sequels and a prequel
Seems like Mammootty is enjoying revisiting his yesteryear hits. The recent announcement that the actor will be reprising his superhit character Kottayam Kunjachan in Kottayam Kunjachan 2 follows on the news that he will be doing Raja 2 and Bilal.
While Raja 2 will be the sequel to Vysakh's superhit Pokkiri Raja, Bilal is said to be a prequel to Amal Neerad's Big-B. Both the characters were popular for their mass appeal and stylish appearances.
While Midhun Manuel Thomas will direct Kottayam Kunjachan 2, that is likely to go on the floors soon, Vysakh and Udaykrishna are said to get back together for Raja 2. According to sources, the latter is completely different from Pokkiri Raja. The film follows Raja's character and the story revolves around him.
It was almost three months ago that Amal Neerad announced Bilal, ending a decade of anticipation on whether the superhit character would make a comeback. According to the director, he will start the project once he wraps up the cinematography of Anwar Rasheed's Trance.
