Malayalam megastar Mammootty seems to have no qualms about working with budding directors. He has given an opportunity to many youngsters to direct him in the recent past and his judgment over their directorial abilities never proved to be wrong in most cases.
With a slew of films in his kitty, there is a buzz that the star would soon team up with Khalid Rahman of Anuraga Karikin Vellam fame. Incidentally, Anuraga Karikin Vellam happened to be the directorâ€™s debut film and starred Biju Menon, Asif Ali, Asha Sarath, and Rajisha Vijayan in the lead roles.
Reports say that Khalid Rahman had impressed Mammootty with a script and the two may soon team up. With news about the star planning to team up with Khalid Rahman making rounds, fans are eager to know about its genre and other details.
The groundwork for the project is currently on and an official word about it is expected to be made soon. In the meantime, Mammootty is awaiting the release of the Ajai Vasudev directorial Masterpiece, an action comedy in which he plays a college professor. Mammootty has had three releases this year so far with The Great Father, Puthan Panam and Pullikaran Staraa getting him a mixed response from film buffs.
Other films in his kitty, which are in various stages of production are Kozhi Thankachan to be directed by Sethu, Raja 2 to be directed by Vyasakh, Streetlights by Shamdat Zainudheen, Parole by Sharrath Sandith, and CBI 5 by K. Madhu.
Apart from this slew of Malayalam films, Mammootty also has the bilingual Peranbu to be made in Tamil and Malayalam simultaneously. This film will be directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ram.
