They were reports of Jeethu Joseph teaming up with Mammootty from a long time back. It wasn’t officially confirmed at that time. Now the director himself has revealed that Mammootty has signed his upcoming project, which is expected to start rolling soon.
The director has earlier approached Mammootty for his blockbuster movies ‘Drishyam‘ and ‘Memories‘, but the actor refused both as the storylines appeared similar to the ones he has previously been in. It was the actor himself who suggested Mohanlal and Prithviraj respectively for the movie. Since these films became a huge success fans have been waiting for Jeethu Joseph to do a movie with Mammootty.
The film is in it’s scripting stage. Jeethu Joseph will be also doing a project with Mohanlal and Dileep as well. This will be after he completes filming the Mammootty starrer.
The director’s upcoming release is Prithviraj starrer ‘Oozham’ which will hit the screens on September 9th.
Meanwhile Mammootty is on the sets of his Tamil flick ‘Peranbu’. He also have a project titled ‘The Great Father’ lined up after this. His upcoming release is ‘Thoppil Joppan’.
