Mollywood mega star Mammootty has had a busy and successful year so far. Mammootty had completed the first schedule of the Ajai Vasudevan directorial Masterpiece last month and he immediately flew down to Bengaluru where he began shooting for Sharrath Sandith’s untitled film.
Reportedly, Mammootty had shot for some prison sequences there and the schedule has been wrapped up successfully. He is now back in Kerala and will be joining the sets of Masterpiece, once again we hear. The star is juggling his projects so well that he doing complete justice to both the films, sources say.
Meanwhile, he has had a very good year so far with The Great Father, which released late in March this year, hitting a century. The film has been running successfully at a theatre in Calicut for 100 days, according to Forum Keralam.
Set in Kollam, Masterpiece’s first schedule was shot at the Fatima College in Quillon and the second schedule will be filmed at a location in Kozhikode. Udayakrishna, who had penned the script for the smash hit Mohanlal starrer Pulimurugan, is the script writer for Masterpiece as well. The film has an ensemble cast including Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Unni Mukundan, Santhosh Pandit, Mukesh, Kalabhavan Shajohn, Maqbool Salmaan and Mahima Nambiar.
Incidentally, Varalaxmi is teaming up with Mammootty for the second time in a Malayalam film and so is director Ajai Vasudevan.
Masterpiece is a campus thriller that has Mammootty playing a strict college professor. It is likely to hit the silver screens later this year.
