Djibouti, the only Malayalam film currently in production

The project began filming on March 6 and is currently progressing at an isolated location

Published: 06th April 2020

While every film crew in the Malayalam industry has stopped production due to the coronavirus outbreak and resultant lockdown, here is one film whose production is currently progressing in a place outside India.

Debutant filmmaker SJ Sinu's Djibouti  began filming on March 5. Named after the East African country of the same name, the film starring Amit Chakkalakkal, Gregory Jacob, Anjali Nair, and Dileesh Pothan is expected to be completed before the end of April.

Anjali has already updated that she has completed her portions. The team is filming at an isolated location believed to be free from the threat of the pandemic. SJ Sinu is known for helming several episodes of the popular Malayalam sitcom Uppum Mulakum.

Djibouti is based on an idea by Sinu. The director has collaborated with his Uppum Mulakum team member Afsal Karunagappally, who has written the screenplay and dialogues.
