Shobana, Nazriya Nazim and Suresh Gopi will be coming together for the first time as they have all signed up for the directorial debut of Sathyan Anthikkad’s son, Anoop Sathyan. The title and rest of the crew details are expected to be announced soon.

The hit pairing of Suresh Gopi and Shobana did wonders for films such as Manichithrathazhe, Innale, and Commissioner. They last appeared together in Jayaraj’s Makalkku (2005). Shobana's most recent on-screen appearance was in Vineeth Sreenivasan’s Thira (2013), while Nazriya's was in Koode (2018).

“It will be a women-centric film with Shobana and Nazriya playing the main characters,” Anthikkad tells Cinema Express speaking on behalf of his son. “Suresh will be playing an integral part in the film. Anoop has already commenced work on the script and the shoot will happen once he is done.”

An engineer-turned-filmmaker, Anoop completed his filmmaking course from the National Institute of Design and has assisted director Lal Jose on several films, in addition to directing and producing an award-winning documentary called A Dream Called America.

Meanwhile, Anthikkad has rubbished rumours of him directing Jayaram in his next film. “They first said I’ll be directing Mammootty and now they’re saying Jayaram. I have not yet decided when I’ll start my next film. At the moment, I’m taking a break. However, I hope to start working on something after Vishu. I’m still looking for a writer. It’s a fun, family-oriented subject,” says Anthikkad, whose last film Njan Prakashan, which saw him collaborating with Sreenivasan once again after 16 years, became one of the biggest hits of his career.
