Dulquer Salman’s next movie will be directed by veteran actor and film maker Pratap Pothen. In an emotional Facebook post, Pothen announced the project.

He wrote, “Anjali Menon agreed to write the script, Rajeev Menon agreed to do the cinematography and the script came into shape. Dulquer was my choice, not because he was Mammootty’s son. But I had seen Ustad hotel and Ok Kanmani and was captivated by him. I got the same feeling that I had when I saw his father that he was going to head for greater things.”

Responding to this, Dulquer wrote, “It gives me the utmost honour to be a part of Prathap sirs untitled next. The film is penned by my dearest Anjali (Menon) and shot by the first director I ever faced the camera with, Rajeev Menon. Global Media who's doing some exciting stuff including my present film with Rajeevettan (Ravi) are the producers. The film will go on floors early next year once I finish some other commitments which will be announced in a similar manner. I've never been more thrilled to be alive. Can't wait. See you at the movies.”

Both the actors got quite emotional in their Facebook posts. Pratap Pothen even devoted lines thanking everyone and added that directing Mammootty in a biopic would be his dream come true.
