Mammootty-Parvathy's Puzhu goes on floors
The film is said to be a multi-lingual release
We had reported earlier that Mammootty and Parvathy Thiruvoth are headlining debutant Ratheena's Puzhu. Filming for the same has commenced in Ernakulam.
Dulquer Salmaan's Wayfarer Films is backing the film jointly with S George's Cyn-Cyl Celluloid. With the former handling distribution, Puzhu marks the first collaboration of the father-son duo.
The launch of the project on Women's Day recently had created a strong buzz considering the collaboration of Mammootty and Parvathy for the first time. The film is said to be a multi-lingual release.
After being a part of many debut directors in Malayalam, Mammootty is launching a woman director for the first time through Puzhu.
Ratheena has previously worked as the executive producer of Parvathy-starrer Uyare, aside from associating with filmmakers such as Revathy Asha Kelunni.
Harshad, Sharfu, and Suhas wrote a screenplay from a story by Harshad. Cinematographer Theni Eshwar, who worked on films such as Peranbu, Karnan and Paava Kadhaigal, is the film's cinematographer.
The songs are composed by Jakes Bejoy, and Deepu Joseph will be editing the movie. Manu Jagadh (Baahubali, Minnal Murali) is in charge of the art department. Vishnu Govind and Sreeshankar of Sound Factor are working on the sound design.
