Tovino Thomas is busy with a slew of films being added to his kitty. The star had recently wrapped up the Malayalam movie Theevandi and is looking to move over to his next assignment.
Reports are that he has inked a deal to star in a Malayalam movie titled India. Though the titled has been announced, there are no other details about this project. Sources in the know say that the groundwork to get it on to the floors have begun and an official word about its commencement, star cast and crew will be out in a few days.
India will be produced by Renji Panicker Entertainments. According to trade reports, the production house will be bankrolling three projects this year. Apart from India, it will also produce the Nivin Pauly starrer which will be directed by Major Ravi and the sequel to Lelam which will have Suresh Gopi as the lead star.
Lelam, released in 1997, was a crime thriller that had Suresh Gopi in the lead role. It was written by Renji Panicker and directed by Joshly.
Tovino’s last film release was Mayaanadhi, which opened to positive reviews late last year. While he has a number of Malayalam movies lined up for release and are in various stages of production, the actor will be making his debut in Tamil with the movie Abi & Anu and has been signed up to share the screen space with Dhanush in Maari 2.
Some of his other movies lined up are Naam, Maradona, Aami, Oru Kuprasidha Payyan, Luka and Tick Tock.
Having signed up India, Tovino has just added one more to his long list of upcoming project.
