Reports about the mega star Mammootty and director Amal Neerad doing a sequel to Big B surfaced a couple of years ago but there was no news about its progress. Recently, Mammootty stirred the attention of his fans by stating that the groundwork for this film is on and more details would emerge when things are ready. Further, Soubin Shahir has posted a pic on Instagram with Amal Neerad and had captioned it Big B. This is a clear indication that the prep work to get Bilal on to the floors has begun in full swing. Unni R, in association with Suhas and Sharfu of Varathan fame, will be penning the script for Bilal.

Big B starred Mammootty in the title role with Nafisa Ali playing the female lead. The others in the star cast in supporting roles included Manoj K Jayan, Bala, Sumit Naval, Shereveer Vakil, Pasupathy and Vijayaraghavan. The technical crew of Big B comprised Samir Thahir for cinematography, Alphons Joseph for composing music for songs, Gopi Sundar for background score, and Vivek Harshan for editing.

It is indeed good news that Bilal is still in the pipeline and will start rolling with an official announcement. Meanwhile, Mammootty’s fans should be happy with the news that One is in progress. The film is a political drama that has Mammootty playing the Chief Minister of Kerala. Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Renji Panicker, Sreenivasan Joju George and Murali Gopy have been roped in for important roles.

Popular writers Bobby and Sanjay are working on the script and it’s the first time they are collaborating with Mammooty. Santhosh Viswanath of Chirakodinka Kinavukal fame is wielding the megaphone for this venture and it is bankrolled by Ichais Productions. One is currently in the pre-production mode and will start rolling soon.
