Geetu Mohandas thanks Team Moothon
The actor took to Facebook to thank the team behind Moothon and reminisce about her journey with the project so far.
The shooting of one of the most anticipated films of this year, Moothon, was wrapped up a few days ago. The film's director Geetu Mohandas, whose previous film Liar's Dice won two National Awards, took to Facebook to thank the team behind Moothon and reminisce about her journey with the project so far.
The director wrote: "These past few days have got me reflecting on my journey. It started with submitting the script for the Sundance lab. I chickened out the last minute because my dad was in his last days and I just couldn’t concentrate. It was Acha who eventually sent it for me. I remember it being a half-baked script, but it was accepted because my mentor Paul Federbush refused to give up on me. A week later Acha left me and with a heavy heart I went to the lab with Moothon. The lab helped me focus to polish my script. "
She then went on to thank her entire team, with a special mention for Nivin Pauly: "Moothon wouldn’t be what it is if not for you. On behalf of our entire team I want to sum up our association with you ... Salute Sakhave!"
Mohandas' script for Moothon had won the Global Filmmaking Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The film will be released in both Malayalam and Hindi. Anurag Kashyap, who wrote and directed Black Friday, Dev D, and Gangs of Wasseypur, has penned the Hindi dialogues.
The film was shot in Mumbai and Lakshadweep. Aanand L Rai's Colour Yellow Productions is producing it in collaboration with JAR Pictures.
