According to sources, they decided on remaking the film rather than giving it a sequel. It will be produced by Aashirwad Cinema and will have Suresh Gopi playing the same role he did in the original. Interestingly, Suresh Gopi shot to fame after this film. The movie will have its pooja on July 16, the release date of the original, 25 years ago.
Neelathamara"s success seems to have enticed Mohanlal into remaking his old film, Rajavaninte Makan. The movie which made Mohanlal a household name will be remade into Malayalam. Antony Perumbavoor, the actor"s close associate, has brought together the original team of the film, director Thampi Kannanthanam and scriptwriter Dennis Joseph for discussion.
