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
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.
