Mammootty starrer Pathinettam Padi is reaching the final stages of shooting and will soon go into the post production stage. The latest update about this film is that scenes involving Prithviraj Sukumaran will be shot next week. The actor, who recently made his directorial debut with Lucifer, will be playing a cameo in this film and scenes involving him will be shot in Alappuzha.

According to reports, Mammootty’s character is named John Abraham Palackal and the crux of the story falls on him. The still of the star from the movie was released sometime ago and it looked every bit stylish.

The film will mark the debut of actor and writer Shanker Ramakrishnan as a feature film director. It is bankrolled by August Cinemas.

Apart from them, fourteen new faces from the fourteen districts of Kerala will be making their acting debut with Pathinettam Padi.

While details about these two actors’ roles in Pathinettam Padi have not been revealed yet, their portions have been shot already, say sources.

The film’s technical crew mainly comprises of debutants with Sudeep Elamon cranking the camera, KH Kaashif wielding the music baton and Bhuvan Sreenivas taking care of its editing.

Shanker Ramakrishnan has earlier directed a segment in the anthology Kerala Café, called Island Express featuring Prithviraj and Kani Kusruthi. He then wrote the historical film Urumi, directed by Santosh Sivan, with Prithvi playing the lead. Another film Shanker wrote is the experimental Netholi Oru Cheriya Meenalla with Fahadh Faasil in the lead. The last film he wrote is My Story, starring Prithvi and Parvathy.

With the shooting of Pathinettam Padi reaching the final stages, we can expect the film’s release date to be announced soon.
