Professor Dinkan gets a minor makeover
Director Ramachandra Babu says the script has been changed and the new version will appeal to families
The second schedule of Professor Dinkan, with Dileep in the lead, will start soon. According to director Ramachandra Babu, the shoot will resume immediately after Dileep wraps up Kammarasambavam. "We hope to restart by the end of December or January," he said.
However, the team has also decided to change the script. "We have gone for a slight change in the script. As per the new format, Professor Dinkan will be more of a family subject. The humour will not be slapstick anymore," says the director.
Ramachandra Babu says he has no apprehensions over the fate of the project. Professor Dinkan was stalled when Dileep was arrested after being an accused in the actor assault case.
"Nothing has changed, except the fact that we won't be able to release it during Vishu, like we had planned initially. Since it is a 3D movie, there is a lot of post-production work, which will take time. So, the release date will be pushed," says the filmmaker.
Dileep plays a magician in Professor Dinkan, that also has Namitha Pramod in the lead. The film, scripted by Rafi, narrates the tale of a magician, who is in a quest for fame.
