Two more projects for Prithviraj

Bramam is speculated to be the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun, while Neela Velicham will be a retelling of Vaikom Muhammed Basheer's story of the same name

Prithviraj Sukumaran will be starring in two more projects - Bramam and Neela Velicham. The former, which is speculated to be the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun, will also star Unni Mukundan and Mamta Mohandas. Ravi K Chandran will direct and handle the camera, while Sarath Balan will provide the screenplay.

Sreekar Prasad is on board as the editor of Bramam, which will have music by Jakes Bejoy. Veteran actor Shankar, Jagadish, Sudhir Karamana, Rashi Khanna, and Surabhi Lakshmi are also in the cast. AP International is bankrolling the film which is expected to roll from January 27.

On the other hand, Neela Velicham has Aashiq Abu at its helm and will feature Prithviraj in addition to Kunchacko Boban, Rima Leena Rajan, and Soubin Shahir. It is being shaped as a retelling of the iconic short story of the same name by Vaikom Muhammed Basheer. The story earlier served as the basis for the 1964 horror classic Bhargavi Nilayam, starring Prem Nazir, Madhu and Vijaya Nirmala.

Shyju Khalid will crank the camera for Neela Velicham, while Saiju Sreedharan is the editor. Rex Vijayan and Bijibal will work on the music. Santosh T Kuruvilla and Aashiq Abu are the producers.

Including Neela Velicham and Bramaram, Prithviraj has more than ten films in the pipeline. He recently completed shooting for an investigative drama, Cold Case, and a thriller, Kuruthi.

Meanwhile, Aashiq Abu is also planning Naradan with Tovino Thomas and Anna Ben.
