Jeethu Joseph to helm Kalidas’ next
The actor will begin work on the film once he is done with his new Tamil film with Premam director Alphonse Puthren
Kalidas Jayaram's next project in Malayalam will be helmed by director Jeethu Joseph. The actor announced this news on his Facebook page yesterday.
He said: "A lot of my friends across social media have been asking me about my next Malayalam movie. It's indeed a pleasure for me to say that I will be working with none other than our very own Jeethu Joseph sir. It's too soon to reveal other details about this project . The movie is planned to happen later this year."
The actor also added that his next film would be in Tamil, directed by Alphonse Puthren of Premam fame. Kalidas also shared a picture of himself alongside Joseph.
He will begin work on Joseph's film once he is done with Puthren's film, which goes on floors soon. Kalidas' debut in Tamil was Meen Kuzhambum Mann Paanaiyum, which came out two years ago. His full-fledged Malayalam debut, Poomaram, opened recently to good reports.
Later, Joseph confirmed the news on his Facebook page as well. The director said: "It's a pleasure to announce that my next Malayalam film will have Kalidas Jayaram in the lead role. Need all your prayers."
In the meantime, Joseph will work on his Bollywood debut, a mystery thriller, starring Emraan Hashmi and Rishi Kapoor. The latter will play a cop investigating a mysterious incident. There were reports that it will be a remake of a foreign language film.
Joseph recently attended the 100 days celebration of his last film Aadhi starring Pranav Mohanlal. The film has been declared a hit and is the director's second biggest hit in Malayalam after Drishyam. Drishyam was remade in Hindi recently by Marathi filmmaker Nishikanth Kamath with Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran in the roles played by Mohanlal and Meena in the original.
