Shoot begins for Asif Ali's Kunjeldho
The script is by RJ Mathukutty, who is also directing the film, while Vineeth Sreenivasan is part of the project as a creative director
We had recently reported that radio and television anchor Mathukutty is set to work with Asif Ali in his maiden directorial Kunjeldho. The filming began today at Kottayam.
The script is by Mathukutty himself, and Vineeth Sreenivasan is also part of the project as a creative director. Prasobh Krishna and Suvin K Varkey of Little Big Films, the same team behind Tovino Thomas’ Kalki and Basil Joseph’s Kunjiramayanam, is backing the project. Prasobh had earlier told us that Kunjeldho will be a “simple feel-good entertainer reminiscent of some of Vineeth Sreenivasan’s films.”
Newcomer Gopika Udayan has been cast as the female lead of the film, which also stars Sudeesh, Siddique, Rajesh Sharma, and Nisthar Sait.
Swaroop Philip has come on board as the cinematographer, while Shaan Rahman will be composing the tunes to the lyrics of Santosh Varma and Aswathy Sreekanth.
Asif Ali, meanwhile, has the Arun Kumar Aravind film Underworld awaiting release. He is also slated to appear in debutant Nisam Basheer’s Kettyolaanu Ente Malaakha, Sugeeth’s Parannu Parannu, and an untitled police drama helmed by Rajeev Ravi.
