The shooting of the Malayalam film 2403 ft commenced recently and we hear that the team has completed the first schedule already. Tovino Thomas and Tanvi Ram of Ambili fame were a part of this schedule. Tanvi took to her social networking page to share the news. “Super proud and excited to share my happiness with you all.. Been lucky and blessed to be part of the film 2403 ft after Ambili, which is directed by Jude Anthany Joseph , pairing with Tovino Thomas, written beautifully by Akhil P Dharmajan and produced by Anto Joseph, followed by a huge list of artists... Seeking all your blessing and continued support (sic),” she wrote.
Director Jude Anthany Joseph earlier announced that 2403 ft is inspired by real-life incidents that happened during the floods that ravaged Kerala last year. Preparations are on to go ahead with the second schedule. The film comes with a tagline, 'story of unexpected heroes'. The film is bankrolled by Anto Joseph under the banner Anto Joseph Film Company. Jude Anthany has scripted the film in association with John Manthrickal. Jude shot into fame directing Om Shaanthi Oshaana. He has also directed Oru Muthassi Gadha. The filmmaker is now active as an actor and was seen last in Oru Kuttanadan Blog.
Reports are that the film has an impressive cast with Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya, Asif Ali, Indrajith, Manju Warrier and Indrans roped in to play important roles but this has not been officially confirmed yet by the makers. Sources in the know say that the director is in the process of roping in some actors from the Tamil film industry.
The technical crew of 2403 ft is highly impressive as well. Jomon T John is handling the camera for this venture with Mahesh Narayanan in charge of the editing, Shaan Rahman composing the tunes and Vishnu Govind and Sree Sankar doing the sound designing. Since the movie demands good amount of CG and special effects, the makers are in talks with a Hollywood based VFX company. In a media interaction much earlier, Jude Anthany said that 2403 ft will not be a movie about floods but about the survival of those affected after the natural disaster struck.
