Mammootty has rarely appeared in dual roles in his entire career spanning more than 25 years. He was seen in few double roles in films such as Dada Saheb and Samrajyam out of the 300 odd films he has done so far. He never compels any of his directors to portray him in multiple roles in any of his films.
Now, after a long time, Mammootty is again appearing in a double role in a new film by Anwar Rasheed, the maker of Mammootty's biggest hit of his career Raja Manikayam. The yet to be titled new venture will have him donning the roles of two brothers. "The plot may be usual, but the script makes the difference…" says the director.
Nayantara and Gopika are the two heroines who will play against Mammootty in this film. Benny P. Naayarambalam has scripted the story and dialogues, and Rahul Raj has scored the music.
Marikkar Films plans to launch the film by November end.
