Mammootty to star in Sathyan Anthikad’s next?
Anthikad has said that it’s quite early to make an official announcement yet, he hopes to start by next year if everything goes according to plan.
Veteran filmmaker Sathyan Anthikad has revealed plans to team up with one of his frequent collaborators, Mammootty, for his next project reportedly being scripted by Iqbal Kuttippuram (Jomonte Suvisheshangal, Oru Indian Pranayakadha).
Though Anthikad has said that it’s quite early to make an official announcement yet, he hopes to start by next year if everything goes according to plan.
Anthikad is currently taking a break after the massive success of Fahadh Faasil's Njan Prakashan. The filmmaker has earlier worked with Mammootty in eight films, including Sreedharante Onnam Thirumurivu, Golandhara Vartha, Kalikkalam, Artham, No.1 Snehatheeram Bangalore North, and Oral Mathram. Mammootty also made a special appearance in Anthikad’s Gandhinagar 2nd Street. Oral Mathram, released 22 years ago, was their last collaboration.
Meanwhile, Mammootty is currently shooting for Ramesh Pisharody’s second directorial Ganagandharvan, in which he plays a ganamela singer. He recently wrapped up his work in the big-budget historical film Mamangam. The multi-lingual epic is now going through the post-production stage and is expected to be released in October.
