Asif Ali's next Mandaram is all set for a September release. As of now, the set date is September 7. This will be the next Asif Ali release after Iblis. Mandaram is apparently a family-friendly romantic entertainer.
The female leads are played by Kannada actress Varsha Bollamma, who made her Malayalam debut with Kalyanam, and Anarkali Marikar, who debuted in Aanandam.
Jacob Gregory, Arjunan Asokan and Vineeth Vishwam appear in supporting roles.
According to director Vijesh Vijay, Mandaram is a pure love story. "Mandaram showcases the life of the protagonist from the age of nine to 32. The whole story revolves around Asif and how the relationships in his life mature him as a person," says the director.
Asif Ali will also be seen in five get-ups. "He will be seen in different looks in each age group. There is a college look, then an after college look and even a teenage look," says Vijesh.
The director also says that Asif hasn't attempted a character like this before.
"The character offers something new for him. This is a very script-backed venture that gives Asif a great opportunity to perform," he adds.
Asif Ali's next after Mandaram is Jis Joy's Vijay Superum Pournamiyum, with Aishwarya Lekshmi. Its release date hasn't been announced yet.
