The Malayalam megastar Mammootty and the lady superstar Nayanthara have shared the screen space in a number of films in the past and most of them have turned out to be smash hits.
Some of the films they got to work together include Rapakal, Bhaskar The Rascal, Thaskaraveeran, and Puthiya Niyamam. While it has been some time since the audience got to see this talented pair back on the silver screens, reports from Mollywood say that they might be teaming up again and this time it would be a biopic.
Sources say that Mammootty has been approached to play the late Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Y Rajashekar Reddy in his biopic and Nayanthara is in talks to play the female lead in it. The film will be directed by Mahi Raghav and he is currently busy with the pre-production to get it on to the floors.
The last time Mammootty and Nayan were seen together on the silver screen was in Puthiya Niyamam. Released in February last year, the film was written and directed by AK Sajan.
Mammootty is one of the busiest actors with a number of films in his kitty including Parole which is getting ready for release later this year and Abhrahaminte Santhathikal and Mamankam.
Nayanthara, on the other hand, has been bagging some of the best projects and mostly heroine-centric films like Maya, Dora and Aramm. Her next film release would be Imaikkaa Nodigal in which she plays the central character.
The film has Atharva in the lead role with Vijay Sethupathi playing a cameo. She has also inked the deal to star in the biopic Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in which she will be sharing the screen space with the Tollywood megastar Chiranjeevi. The actor also has Kolamaavu Kokila, which went on to the floors recently.
