One of the most anticipated projects of this year, writer Sethu’s  directorial debut starring Mammootty will go on the floors this September. According to the director, the actor has given the nod and the team  is giving final touches to the script.

“The yet-to-be-titled movie will be shot at Kuttanad. We have decided the  location. However, the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised,” he said.The movie, which will have Mammootty playing a villager, will have three heroines. “Talks are on with three lead ladies of Malayalam. The names will be announced soon,” said Sethu.

In an earlier interview, the director has announced that the movie will be an entertainer and will have Mammootty in a totally-relatable avatar. The  director has earlier worked with Mammootty in Doubles (2011) which had Mammootty and Nadia Moidu in the lead.

The Sethu-Sachi duo had earlier scripted a number of hit movies, including the Prithviraj starrer, Robin Hood and Chocolate. However, the duo parted ways in 2011. While Sachi made his debut with the critically and commerically acclaimed Anarkali, Sethu had planned a project a few years ago which had to be shelved.
