The first look of Parava, which has Dulquer Salmaan playing an extended cameo, was released on the occasion of Eid creating a huge hype. Written and directed by Soubin Shahir, the film is produced by Anwar Rasheed and Shyju Unni under the banner Anwar Rasheed Entertainment in association with The Movie Club.
The screenplay for Parava has been penned jointly by Muneer Ali and Soubin Shahir while the DOP is Littlil Swayamp and editing is by Praveen Prabhakar. Rex has composed music for this venture and Ajayan Chalissery is in charge of the art direction. Reports are that Dulquer Salmaan will be seen in an extended cameo in this film with Shane Nigam of Kismath playing the lead role. Others in the star cast are Arjun Ashokan, Zinil Zainudeen, Jacob Gregory, Indrans and Srinda Arhaan.
The shooting of this film commenced on June 1 last year at the Qissa Cafe in Fort Kochi after the director roped in the actors by selecting them through a casting call that was publicised on social networking sites. Earlier, plans were to release Parava for Christmas last year and the team worked towards this deadline. However, the film strike and other issues forced the filmmakers to consider a fresh release date. Parava has been in the cans for a long time now and reports are that it will be out at the theatres on September 1 this year.
Meanwhile, Dulquer Salmaan is busy with a slew of films in his kitty including the trilingual Mahanati, a biopic on the late thespian Savitri. He has begun shooting for this film, which has Keerthy Suresh and Samantha Ruth Prabhu playing the female leads. Mahanati is slated to hit the silver screens early next year.
