Lelam sequel to start rolling in March
Director Nithin Renji Panicker confirms that the sequel to the superhit Suresh Gopi-starrer will roll soon
The sequel to superhit Suresh Gopi-starrer Lelam will finally go on the floors in March. This was confirmed to Cinema Express by director Nithin Renji Panicker. However, he refuted rumours that the film has been titled Aanakattil Chackochi.
"Yes, we are starting the shoot in March. But, certain elements are yet to be finalised. The cast and crew will be announced later," he says.
As for the title, Nithin says though a few titles, including Aanakattil Chackochi, are under consideration, the film hasn't been titled yet. "We haven't fixed it. We hope to do it soon," he said.
The film is being scripted by Renji Panicker and it will also be bankrolled by the writer-actor under his home banner Renji Panicker Entertainments.
Lelam, which released in 1997, was directed by Joshiy. Suresh Gopi played the role of Aanakattil Chackochi in it. Speculations are that the actor will reprise his character in the sequel too. However, there is no official confirmation in this regard yet.
