Looks like Mammootty’s fans will soon get to see him play a politician. Though this is not the first time he will be seen playing a politician, the mega star’s fans are always eager to see him play the role.

He has previously played the politician in the 1991 release Nayam Vyakthamakunnu, which was written and directed by Balachandra Menon and produced by R Mohan. Also, in 1995, he was seen playing a similar role in the Tamil movie Makkal Atchi, which was directed by RK Selvamani.

After all these years, the star is set to don the politician role and this time around, Santhosh Viswanath will be wielding the megaphone. To be scripted by the acclaimed writers Bobby and Sanjay, the film is touted to go on to the floors in March next year.

Santhosh Vishawananth had directed the spoof film Chirakodinja Kinavukal a couple of years ago and it starred Sreenivasan, Kunchacko Boban, Rima Kallingal, Joy Mathew, Srinda Ashab and Manoj K Jayan. The film was bankrolled by Listin Stephen under his banner Magic Frames.

Meanwhile, Mammootty’s Masterpiece had hit the silver screens on December 21 and is cashing on the long Christmas weekend. He is currently busy with the Shamdat Zainudheen directorial Streetlights, which is due for release on January 26th next year.

The star also has a slew of movies in his kitty including Uncle, Parole and Peranbu, which are all slated for release at regular intervals next year. With news about Mammootty associating with director Santhosh Vishawananth and script writers Sanjay and Bobby, there are huge expectations on this project. Bobby and Sanjay, the award winning script writers, are currently busy with the Nivin Pauly starrer Kayamkulam Kochunni, which is being directed by Rosshan Andrews.
