Double Barrel, one of the most anticipated multi-starrer projects of the year, goes on floor today. The shooting starts today in Fort Kochi. The movie is directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery and produced under the banners August Cinemas and Amen Movie Monastery.
The news was announced on the official Facebook page of August Cinemas. A promo poster was also released on the official Facebook page of Double Barrel.
The movie will have Prithviraj, Fahad Fazil and Indrajith in the male leads. Prithviraj and Fahad Fazil are sharing screen space for the first time. Fahad was the first choice for one of the main characters in Prithviraj's upcoming movie Sapthamasree Thaskara; but the actor turned down the offer due to date issues. Later, the offer went to Asif Ali.
Fahad Fazil and Indrajith, who worked together before in Amen, will be seen for the second time in Double Barrel. Indrajith is sharing screen space with his younger brother Prithviraj after a long gap. The on-screen chemistry between the brothers in movies such as Classmates was well appreciated by critics and audience.
Double Barrel is a comedy-thriller, set in the backdrops of underworld. Swathi Reddy, Isha Sherwani and Rachana Narayanankutty will play the female leads in the movie. It is rumoured that young stars Asif Ali and Sunny Wayne will appear in cameo roles in the movie.
