Director Jenuse Mohammedâ€™s upcoming film has been titled Nine and it will feature Prithiviraj Sukumaran in the lead role. The title Nine is apparently in relation with the series of events that unfolds in nine days and how it is resolved. The film is touted to belong to the sci fi horror genre and this is the first such film to be ever made in the Malayalam film industry. The shooting of Nine commenced in Kerala on April 9th and the team intends to shoot some important portions in Manali later.
The film is bankrolled by Prithvirajâ€™s wife Supriya Menon under the banner Prithviraj Productions along with SPE Films and the filmâ€™ distribution rights have been bagged by Sony Pictures. This is the maiden production venture from the Prithviraj banner. On the star cast, we hear that talks are on with Nithya Menen and Parvathy to play the female leads but nothing has been confirmed yet. Besides directing the film, Jeuse Mohammed had written the story and screenplay as well.
On the technical crew, it is Shaan Rahman, who will be composing the tunes for the soundtrack while Sekhar Menon will be composing the background score. Abinandhan Ramanujam is the cinematographer for this venture and Shameer Muhammed is the editor.
As the film went on to the floors recently, rumors have surfaced that Prithviraj plays a scientist in it and it is inspired by the Spanish film Times Crimes. However, this needs to be confirmed yet as there are no official word on it yet.
Prithvirajâ€™s next film release would be Ranam, which is due to hit the silver screens this month. He also has a number of films such as My Story, Aadujeevitham, an Anjali Menon directorial, and Kaaliyan in his kitty needing his attention.
