After Maradu 357, director Kannan Thamarakulam is reteaming with Anoop Menon for a new film titled Varal, scripted by and starring the latter. Anoop will share the screen with Prakash Raj, Sunny Wayne, Suresh Krishna, Shankar Ramakrishnan and Ranji Panicker.
Ravi Chandran will crank the camera for the film, which is said to be a political drama. PA Sebastien is bankrolling it under the banner of Time Ads Entertainments. Filming will commence in the first week of September in Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram and Peermede.

Meanwhile, Anoop has also forayed into direction with King Fish (directorial debut) and Padma.
