Joju George has started shooting for a new film titled Madhuram. Helmed by June-fame Ahammed Khabeer, the film is also the actor’s fourth production venture after Joseph, Porinju Mariam Jose, and Chola under the banner of Appu Pathu Pappu Production. Joju is co-producing it with Sijo Vadakkan, Badusha, and Suraj PS.
Madhuram is said to be a romance drama and it also has Shruti Ramachandran, Nikhila Vimal, Arjun Ashokan, and Indrans in lead roles. The team has planned the shoot at Ernakulam, Fort Kochi, and Kottayam.
Ashiq Aimar and Fahim Safar wrote the screenplay based on a story by Ahammed Khabeer. Jithin Stanislaus, who also shot June, is behind the camera. Mahesh Bhuvanend is editing the film, which has Hesham Abdul Wahab composing the music to Vinayak Sasikumar’s lyrics.
Ahammed Khabeer was initially supposed to do another project, titled Insha Allah, with Joju as actor and producer. However, pandemic-related complications forced the makers to put it on hold.
Aside from Madhuram, Joju is awaiting the release of an exciting lineup which includes Santosh Vishwanath's One, Karthik Subbaraj’s Jagame Thanthiram, Rajeev Ravi’s Thuramukham, Mahesh Narayanan’s Malik, and Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Churuli.
Shruti Ramachandran is also part of Manu Ashokan’s Kaanekkaane, which has Tovino Thomas and Aishwarya Lekshmi as her co-stars. Nikhila Vimal, on the other hand, has Jofin T Chacko’s The Priest and Sibi Malayil’s Kothu also coming up next.
