Our Indian superstar Rajini Kanth is rarely doing a film once in two years. But it seems to be that our neighboring superstars Mammootty and Mohan Lal are always busy in their shooting for all the 365 days round the clock!
Take the case of Mammootty. At present he is acting in 6 films in both Malayalam and Tamil!
His next release in Malayalam will be Nasrani, an action packed movie directed by Joshi. The actor hopes that Nasrani will bring cheers in the box office to compensate the debacles of his recent films. The shooting of Nasrani has already been completed and it is expected to be released for Ramzan.
Now actor is acting in Vande Mataram (Aruvadai in Tamil). A bi-lingual film produced by Pankaj production Henry. Simultaneously he is concentrating on his dream project Pazhassi Raaja also.
He was also given his dates to Mukesh's home production 'Katha Parayumbol'. The film which also has Sreenivasan in an equal role with Mammootty is directed by debutant Mohan. Scripted by Sreenivasan himself, the producer Mukesh will also appear in a prominent role in the film. Mammootty appears as a superstar Ashokraj in this film, while Sreenivasan is a barber Balan who is an old friend of the star. The shooting of the movie will be launched in the coming September 20th. The actor is also doing an action investigative thriller for writer-director Ranji Panikkar.
The film was originally titled as Rowdram. But at the time of the film's launch on Sep 3rd in Kochi, the title has been changed to Shouryam. It will be a mass film with punch-lines and action, which the actor's fans are sure to lap up. Mammootty and Ranji Panikkar are together again after nearly 10 years after The King!
