Published: 11th November 2019

We recently reported that directors Aashiq Abu, Jay K, Rajeev Ravi, and Venu will be contributing short films for a new anthology project. The shoot of the Aashiq Abu film has just begun.

Titled Pennum Cherukkanum, the film is based on a short story of the same name by Unni R. Cinematographer Shyju Khalid is collaborating with Aashiq Abu again for the sixth time for this film. The two have previously worked together in films such as Virus, 22 Female Kottayam, and Idukki Gold.

The other segments in the anthology, except the one directed by Jay K of Ezra fame, are yet to go into production. As per reports, Rajeev Ravi’s segment will go on floors by December. The Kammattipadam-director is currently busy with the post-production of his latest directorial, Thuramukham.

Malayalam cinema has seen some notable anthologies in the past such as 5 Sundarikal and Kerala Cafe.

Aashiq’s next full-length feature is expected to be with Soubin Shahir. Meanwhile, Shyju’s new feature, Anjaam Pathira, helmed by Midhun Manuel Thomas, is gearing up for release. The film is an investigative thriller starring Kunchacko Boban as the lead.
