Mohanlal writer announces next

Suneesh Varanad's second film has been titled Santosh Trophy

Published: 19th May 2018

Suneesh Varanad, the writer of Sajid Yahiya's Mohanlal, has announced his next. Titled Santosh Trophy, the film is about the series of failures faced by a loser called Santosh, and is expected to go on floors soon. This will be Varanad's second film.

A host of popular names will be headlining the cast. Varanad says, "I can't reveal their names as of yet but an announcement will be made soon. It's not based on a true story as some reports say. It's an original idea. It will be a full-blown comedy. I've had discussions with Rajesh, who has worked as Priyadarshan's assistant director for so many years, and he has signed on as the director."

Varanad says he was compelled to write Santosh Trophy after being encouraged by the positive response he got for Mohanlal.

Meanwhile, discussions are going on to remake Mohanlal in Tamil and Telugu. The preview screenings for producers in those industries will take place sometime during the coming week. 

Starring Manju Warrier and Indrajith, Mohanlal was about a die-hard Mohanlal fan, played by Manju, whose obsession with the actor interferes with her marital life. There are reports that Jyotika has been approached to play Manju's role in Tamil.
