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.
Meanwhile, 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.
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.
