Jayaram and Kannan Thamarakumam are a formidable combo, having churned out three big hits together in their career.
The director made his debut with the Malayalam film Thinkal Muthal Velli Vare which had Jayaram play the lead role and then went on to wield the megaphone for Aadupuliyattam. Their last outing together was Achayans, which turned out to be a big hit.
Dileesh Pallath had penned the script for this film. And now, we hear that the trio – Jayaram, Kannan Thamarakulam and Dileesh Pallath – will be teaming up again for a new film. Achayans was released on 19 May 2017 and it was declared a blockbuster hit.
Confirming the news, the director had told the Times of India, “We have zeroed in on a script and Jayaram and I will be working together soon. However, it's too soon to reveal the details as I would be doing another film before that.” With the director saying that it is still in the initial stages, we need to wait for more info.
Clarifying rumors that Kannan had a script ready for Unni Mukundan who played a pivotal role in Achayans, he said, “We have bounced off the scripts to Unni and Godha actress Wamiqa Gabbi but nothing is finalised yet.”
Meanwhile, Jayaram is busy with a couple of Malayalam movies in his kitty. While his Aakasamittayi has reportedly reached the post production mode, Panchavarna Tatha is into the pre-production stage. Jayaram will be making his debut in Tollywood with Bhagmathi this year. The shooting of this film is in progress and will be released later this year. Apart from this, he also has the Tamil film Party needing his attention.
