Hariharan to direct Kunjan Nambiar biopic?
A legendary poet and satirist, Kunjan Nambiar was also known for inventing the dance form Ottamthullal.
After Pazhassi Raja, director Hariharan is reportedly planning a biopic on Kunjan Nambiar. The screenplay is being penned by noted lyricist and former Malayalam University vice-chancellor, K Jayakumar.
Though no casting announcements have been made yet, the film is expected to be another big-budget venture like Pazhassi Raja or Oru Vadakkan Veeragadha, and will most likely go into production within this year.
