Mammootty’s next with Khalid Rahman
This is Khalid's second film after Anuraga Karikkin Vellam
Anuraga Karikkin Vellam director Khalid Rahman's next project is being planned with Mammootty. Cinematographer Jimshi Khalid, who also worked on his earlier film, will be a part of the upcoming film as well.
As per some reports, the film is titled Unda and will start rolling in September. Cinema Express got in touch with Khalid and Jimshi to confirm.
"We are definitely doing a film with Mammootty, but we can't say that's the final title. The scripting is in the final stages. We might make some changes to it. It's a continuously evolving process. The location hunt and other work is still going on. I have signed on as the cinematographer," says Jimshi.
Apparently, Mammootty will play the role of a cop. "But I can't reveal anything more. For now, all I can say is that the script is inspired by a true story. We will reveal more details in due time. As for the shoot, we can't say for sure that it will begin in September," adds Jimshi.
The director, however, is much less forthcoming. "Yes, a film with Mammootty is definitely being planned. I can't reveal the rest of the details. Though we intend to shoot soon, the news that we're going to shoot in September is just hearsay. We are yet to fix a date. We will keep everyone updated once everything is finalised."
The news of this project is certainly an exciting one as Khalid Rahman made a big impression with Anuraga Karikkin Vellam in 2016. Starring Biju Menon, Asif Ali, Asha Sharath, and Soubin Shahir, the film was a critically acclaimed drama.
Jimshi's work on that film was commended also. He is the brother of cinematographer Shyju Khalid, who has worked on Ee. Ma. Yau., Sudani from Nigeria, and Maheshinte Prathikaram.
Meanwhile, Mammootty will be seen in another cop avatar in Abrahaminte Santhathikal, which is expected to be released for Eid.
