Rewind to the late 90s and he used to be the ultimate romantic icon. Though Kunchacko Boban shed his lover-boy image in the second innings, now the actor is all set to do another out-and-out love story. But this time he won’t be running around the trees or wooing his campus crush as he plays a  40-year-old in Ranjith Sanakr’s Ramante Eden Thottam.

“Real romance is something we have been missing for a while and Ramante Eden Thottam explores mature love rather than infatuations. Kunchacko plays his real age,” says the director.

Ranjith adds an actor needs to be in the right mindset to stray from his routine outings. “It’s a role that requires some physical and emotional grooming. He was ready for that and  though I have been planning to do a film with Kunchacko I chose to wait till the right script. He will be taking a three-month break to prepare for the movie,” he says.

And does that mean we get to see the star in an all-new avatar? “40 is a still-young age and we haven’t gone for any extreme makeover for the film. But your maturity level will be high compared to 20s and 30s. With age the concept of love gets more refined,” says Ranjith.    

Kunchacko, who was last seen in Kochauvva Paulo Ayyappa Coelho, is equally excited about the project. “Thrilled to join hands with director Ranjith Shankar, the man who puts passion, talent and hardwork into his creations whatever the genre,” he wrote on his facebook page.
The team is yet to reveal the rest of the cast including the lead lady.
