Aashiq Abu's Neelavelicham gets a cast change
Neelavelicham was originally announced with Prithviraj, Kunchacko Boban, Rima Kallingal and Soubin Shahir as the lead actors
It was earlier announced that Aashiq Abu would be making a film titled Neelavelicham based on Vaikom Mohammed Basheer's classic novel of the same name. The film was originally announced with Prithviraj, Kunchacko Boban, Rima Kallingal and Soubin Shahir as the lead actors.
However, due to the delay caused by the pandemic and date issues, actors Prithviraj and Kunchacko Boban opted out of the project. Aashiq Abu, in a recent interview, revealed that Tovino Thomas and Asif Ali will be replacing them.
But the latest development is that the cast of Neelavelicham has undergone yet another change. The film will star Tovino, Shine Tom Chacko, Roshan Mathew and Rima Kallingal as the leads.
Girish Gangadharan has replaced Shyju Khalid as the cinematographer and music department will be handled jointly by Bijibal and Rex Vijayan.
Aashiq Abu and Santhosh T Kuruvilla are jointly producing the film, which will go on floors from April.
