Director of Oru Vadakkan Selfie Prajith is currently busy making a movie with Biju Menon and Anu Sithara in the lead. To be titled yet, this film has been scripted by the National award-winning writer Sajeev Pazhoor.
While this film is still in progress, we hear that director Prajith is in talks with actor Dileep to feature him in his next. Touted to be a big budget film, it will be bankrolled by Aby Thottapuram under the banner Thottapuram Films. Reports are that the film will be scripted by Abhilash Pillai and TN Suraj.
In the meantime, Dileep is busy with a couple of films. Professor Dinkan, directed by Ramachadran Babu, is almost in the final stages. Further, the star has moved over to the B Unnikrishnan directorial next, which has been titled Kodathi Samaksham Balan Vakkeel. In the movie, Dileep plays an advocate.
Professor Dinkan has Dileep playing the lead role with Namitha Pramod as his heroine. The cast also includes Suraj Venjaramoodu, Aju Varghese, Srindaa, Rafi, Kochu Preman and Kailas. Scripted by Rafi, the film has Dileep playing a magician. The film reportedly has the magician performing a trick that unwittingly affects the lives of some people. Following this, he tries hard to set right the damage he has done and that forms the crux of the story.
While Ramachandra Babu will be wielding the megaphone and cranking the camera as well for Professor Dinkan, the editing will be done by Rajesh Mangalakal. The movie is being bankrolled by Sanal Thottam under the banner New TV. The shooting of this film is almost over and is awaiting release.
The film was initially planned as a comedy entertainer but the makers reportedly decided to convert it into a family entertainer later. Apparently, it is a bid to bring in a large number of family audiences to the theatre, following the controversies circling Dileep, accused of masterminding the rape of a fellow actor in Kochi last year.
