Dileep's Ramaleela turned out to be a blockbuster hit and the star is gearing up for the release of a couple of films this year including Kammara Sambhavam.
The latest buzz doing rounds about his upcoming film is that it is a Nadir Shah directorial titled Kesu Ee Veedinte Nathan. In this movie, Dileep will be seen playing a 60-year-old and will be undergoing a complete makeover to fit into the role.
This movie will also mark the first association of Dileep and Nadir Shah as an actor and director.
Though there isn't any official confirmation in this regard yet, some reports state that Urvashi has been roped in to play his wife in Kesu Ee Veedinte Nathan and Ponnamma Babu will be seen playing his sister in this family entertainer.
Sajeev Pazhoor of the Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum fame has penned the screenplay for this film. The movie is still in the scripting stage with plans on to shoot it later this year.
Director Nadir Shah is currently busy directing the Tamil version of Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan, a comedy drama that starred Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Prayaga Martin and Lijo Mol Jose in the lead roles. He will be switching over his focus to the Dileep starrer as soon as he is done with the project on hands.
In the mean time, Dileep will be wrapping up Kammara Sambhavam. Directed by debutant Rathish Ambat, the film has been scripted by Murali Gopy. Touted to hit the silver screens soon, this entertainer stars Dileep in the lead role and will mark Siddharthâ€™s debut in the Malayalam film industry. The star cast also includes Murali Gopy, Bobby Simha, Shweta Menon and Simarjeet Singh Nagra.
Kammara Smabhavam is being bankrolled by Gokulam Gopalan under his banner Sree Gokulam Movies. It may be mentioned here that the shooting of this film had to be stalled for several months due to its lead star's arrest in the actor assault case and was eventually revived on his release on bail.
