After Joseph and Mamangam, Director M Padmakumar has announced that his next will be a thriller starring Asif Ali and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles. Mahima Nambiar and Swasika have been roped in to play the female leads in this flick. The scripting for this film is done by Abhilash Pillai.
The technical crew includes Ratheesh Ram for camerawork and Kiran Das for editing duties while Ranjin Raj will be scoring the music. The groundwork for this has begun already and will go on the floors once Padmakumar is done with his current assignments.
The Mammootty starrer Mamangam has reached the final stages of post-production. Made on a budget of Rs. 50 crore, the film is a historical based on a medieval fair for the warriors and it is presumed that Unni Mukundan will be playing a warrior in it as well. The film has four heroines, Prachi Desai, Prachi Tehlan, Malavika Menon and Abhirami V Iyer in the star cast and those playing supporting roles in it would be Neeraj Madhav, Sunil Sukhada, Meghanathan and Sohan Seenulal.
Ganesh Rajavelu aka Jim Ganesh will be wielding the camera, M Jayachandran scoring the music, Sreekar Prasad in charge of the editing, and Kaecha Khamphakdee will be choreographing the stunts. It is being bankrolled by Venu Kunnampilly under the banner Kavya Films.
The director’s other film in the making is a thriller written by Shahi Kabir. It stars Joju George, Dileesh Pothan, Irshad, Athmiya, Johny Antony, Sudhi Koppa, Malavika Menon, and Madhuri Braganza in the lead roles. Padmakumar has retained the core technical team that he worked with in Mamangam for Joseph with only one change. While Ratheesh Ram is cranking the camera for Mamangam, it is Manesh Madhavan for Joseph.
