Corona Papers Shane Nigam Priyadarshan

We had earlier reported about Shane Nigam starring in Priyadarshan's next, Corona Papers. After a couple of months of the shoot, the makers successfully wrapped up filming on Sunday. Produced by the director's banner Four Frames, the film is reportedly the remake of the Tamil film 8 Thottakal. Priyadarshan is adapting the script based on the original's director Sri Ganesh's story.

Shane Nigam will be reprising the cop's role played by Vetri in 8 Thottakal. The Malayalam version has Gayathrie Shankar, who recently made her M-Town debut with Nna Thaan Case Kodu, as the female lead. Shine Tom Chacko, Siddique, Sandhya Shetty, Jais Jose, PP Kunhikrishnan, Maniyanpilla Raju, Sreedhanya, Vijilesh, Menaka Suresh Kumar, Biju Pappan, and Srikant Murali also star in it.

Divakar Mani, who has worked in Telugu films like Virata Parvam, Ninnila Ninnila, and Ranarangam, is the cinematographer. Edits are handled by Ayyappan, a regular in Priyadarshan films.
