After the super hit Johnny Walker (1992), superstar
Mammootty is all set to act in a film to be directed by National
Award winning filmmaker Jayaraj. Reports say this untitled film
will be scripted by scenarist-director Renjith, who recently donned
the lead role in Jayaraj's Gulmohar. More details about
the project are still awaited.
Interestingly, Mammootty's first film with Jayaraj Johnny
Walker was also scripted by Renjith. After an impressive
opening, Johnny Walker failed to become a big hit, but was noted
for its technical finesse and stylistic workouts.
Renjith has scripted over 35 films, including Devasuram, which
turned him into a top-notch scriptwriter. But recently, he was
going through turbulent times following flops like Prajapathy,
Chandrotsavam and Rock N Roll.
Mammootty's upcoming Love In Singapore, presenting him as
'Aakry Machu', a man who rose to financial heights after starting
his life as a scrap dealer, is expected to hit theatres by the last
week of January. Tamil/ Telugu actor Navneet Kaur is the heroine.
The film is produced by MHM Films.
