Present restrictions not helpful for CBI 5: SN Swamy
Mammootty will be reprising his role as Sethurama Iyer in the fifth instalment of the CBI franchise
Recently, there were reports that the team behind the fifth CBI film is gearing up to shoot soon. However, in a recent interaction with Malayalam online portal The Cue, the film's writer SN Swamy said the pandemic fear is standing in the way of filming. "As the project requires both indoor and exterior locations, the present restrictions are not helpful," he said.
Last year, Swamy had told us that the fifth film will focus on a concept called 'basket killing'. The pre-production work of the film began a few months back.
Mammootty will be reprising his role as Sethurama Iyer. As per reports, Jakes Bejoy is likely to join as the music composer.
Aside from CBI 5, Mammootty's upcoming projects include the political drama One, and thriller The Priest. He is also slated to join Amal Neerad's Bilal, the sequel to Big B.
