After Shylock, writers Bibin Mohan and Aneesh Hameed will be teaming up with director Ajai Vasudev again for a project which is expected to be a multi-starrer.
Bibin, Aneesh, and Ajai were present at an event which saw the announcement of two upcoming projects, one helmed by Ajai and the other by Shyamaprasad.
Though some casting rumours were circulating online, Bibin tells us that the actors are yet to be confirmed. “We are still in the scripting stage, and any casting decision will be made only after we complete writing it. But we can say that it’s likely to be a multi-starrer.
As to who these actors are, we can only reveal them once everything becomes finalised. We hope to get things rolling by the end of the year.” As to the genre, Bibin reveals that it will be a mass entertainer albeit different in format from Shylock. “We are aiming for another crowd-pleasing entertainer that will involve a lot of actors and extras,” he says.
Before Ajai starts working on the yet-to-be-titled film, he will be directing a political thriller titled Naalaam Thoonu starring Asif Ali, Arjun Ashokan, and Suraj Venjaramoodu. Royal Cinemas is backing the two announced projects. The Shyamaprasad project, on the other hand, is reportedly an adaptation of Sarah Joseph’s Aalohari Anandam.
