Mollywood has witnessed the trend where one movie is been directed by many directors. The movie Manichitrathazhu was directed by Fazil, Priyadarshan, Siddique-Lal and Sibi Malayil together. Moreover the movie Kerala Cafe was an anthology of ten different stories directed by ten different directors. Similarly, Taxi is yet another upcoming movie which is to be directed by three directors under the script of another director. Mammootty will be playing the main lead in this film.
Shyamaprasad, VK Prakash and Kamal are the three directors, who are all set to direct the movie Taxi together. Anjali Menon, who rose to fame with her movie Manjadikkuru and who was also the scriptwriter for the movie Usthad Hotel, is doing the script work for Taxi. D Company, which was released last week, was also an anthology of three features, directed by three directors. But the movie failed to impress its audience.
Taxi was earlier reported to be a venture by Shyamaprasad alone. Mammootty was to play the hero in that too. The rest of the cast and crew of Taxi is yet to be finalised. It is a great opportunity for the actor as well as the directors to show off their calibre as professionals. Taxi is expected to go on floors by the end of this year if the actor has no issues with his dates. Otherwise the movie will start rolling only by next year.
