Siju Wilson and Sharafudheen, who shared screen space in Premam, went on to work together in Happy Wedding and Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela, which were huge hits as well.
Their association on the silver screen has been successful, and now, they have once again been roped in to star together in Mandakini. Apart from Siju Wilson and Sharafudheen, the film will also have Krishna Shankar, Althaf and Shabareesh, who were part of Premam.
Mandakini is touted to be a comedy thriller that will be helmed by journo-turned-director Jenith Kachipally. According to sources, the film is all about an incident that happens in a single night and it will be a gripping tale.
While the male actors have been finalised, the director is yet to decide on the female actor to star in the film. Siju Wilson and Sharafudheen were last seen together in the recently released Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela. The film was an Onam release which hit the marquee on September 1 and went on to score big at the box office.
The Mandakini team came up with a unique promo strategy by publishing a news report about the arrest of the five actors Siju Wilson, Sharafudheen, Krishna Shankar, Althaf and Shabareesh. This has increased expectation levels about the film. While movie buffs were trying to find out if the report on the arrest was true, it was soon revealed that it was a strategy to make the project popular.
Rajesh Augustine, known for producing films such as Ithihasa and Style, will be producing Mandakini under his banner ARK Media. The filmâ€™s shooting is expected to begin in a couple of monthsâ€™ time.
