Vijay Babu officially confirms Aadu 3
The second part of the Midhun Manuel Thomas-directed cult hit, starring Jayasurya, was released in 2017
Producer Vijay Babu of Friday Film House has officially stated via his social media handles that the third part in the Aadu series is very much on. The second part of the cult hit, starring Jayasurya, was released in 2017. Midhun Manuel Thomas directed both parts.
A rare example of a film that met with weak theatrical reception, but was a huge success upon release on home video, the first part of Aadu won viewers over with its quirky sense of humour and memorable, whacky characters. The protagonist of these films, Shaji Pappan, played by Jayasurya, has now become one of the actor's iconic characters. Vijay Babu also made an appearance in the franchise, as a cop named Sarbath Shameer.
Meanwhile, Vijay is busy prepping his latest production, June, for release. Starring Rajisha Vijayan and Joju George as daughter and father, respectively, the coming-of-age drama will be hitting the screens on February 15.
On the other hand, Midhun Manuel's upcoming release, Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu, featuring Kalidas Jayaram and Aishwarya Lekshmi, is scheduled for release on March 1.
