Asif Ali to play a cop in Rajeev Ravi's next
The director is currently busy filming his fourth directorial, Thuramukham
Asif Ali has confirmed that he will be starring in Rajeev Ravi’s upcoming directorial based on a real-life robbery incident that happened in Kasaragod.
The project marks the first collaboration of the actor and filmmaker. Asif took to Facebook to share the news. He said he is super excited and eagerly waiting to work with the veteran cinematographer -turned-director.
The film will be based on a script by real-life police officer Sibi Thomas, who made his acting debut through Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, on which Rajeev worked as the director of photography.
Sibi has penned the script based on one of his investigations. The case was apparently described by many as a brilliantly executed robbery. Asif is expected to play Sibi in the film. Arun Kumar VR will be producing the film under the banner of Filmroll Productions.
Rajeev Ravi made his directorial debut with the Fahadh Faasil-Andrea Jeremiah starrer Annayum Rasoolum. He is currently busy filming his fourth directorial, Thuramukham. The epic period film has Nivin Pauly, Nimisha Sajayan, Biju Menon, and Indrajith Sukumaran playing important characters.
