Earlier, we had reported that Amal Neerad unveiled the star-studded cast of his upcoming film. On Sunday, the makers announced the title of the film as Bougainvillea, along with a new poster featuring its principal cast.

Bougainvillea stars Kunchacko Boban, Fahadh Faasil and Jyothirmayi in the lead roles. Sharafudheen, Veena Nandakumar and Srinda are also part of its cast. Interestingly, except for Kunchacko Boban, all other actors have previously worked with Amal Neerad. It also marks the return of Jyothirmayi, Amal Neerad's wife, after a hiatus of more than a decade.

Bougainvillea is jointly scripted by novelist Lajo Jose and Amal, while Bheeshma Parvam-fame R J Murugan has penned the additional dialogues. The upcoming film is co-produced by actors Jyothirmayi and Kunchacko Boban under the banners of Amal Neerad Productions and Udaya Pictures respectively.

The director has retained almost the same technical crew from his previous outing for Bougainvillea, including cinematographer Anend C Chandran, editor Vivek Harshan and composer Sushin Shyam.

Although reports suggested that the film is an adaptation of Lajo Jose's Ruthinte Lokam, the novelist has denied the rumour. In a recent social media interaction, Lajo confirmed that it is an entirely new story.

Bougainvillea is reportedly aiming for a September release during the Onam season.
