Director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan, following the release of his critically acclaimed films Chola and S Durga, has started working on his next film. The upcoming movie, which is reportedly titled Kayattam, features Manju Warrier in the lead.

Chola is among the 19 international films picked for Orizzonti, which runs parallel to the main competition category.

Manju Warrier has some enviable films in her kitty right now, including Priyadarshan’s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and Santosh Sivan’s Jack n Jill in Malayalam. The shooting of Jack N Jill, which commenced last year, has wrapped up. It has been some years that ace cinematographer Santosh Sivan has donned the director’s robes. His last directorial was Inam in 2014. The film is bankrolled by the Dubai based company, Lensman Studios. Its technical crew comprises debut music director Ram Surendar with BK Harinarayanan penning the lyrics. Santosh Sivan is cranking the camera for this venture with Renjith roped in for editing.
