cinematographer turned director, who made a bang with the latest
release Munnariyippu, revealed that his
starrer project will not go on floors in the near future. It was
rumoured that Mohanlal will be playing the lead role in Venu's next
movie. But the director said that he has a project with Mohanlal in
his mind; but it is not his next project.
Venu stated that he was actually planning a movie with Mohanlal
in the lead role instead of Munnariyippu. But the project
didn't materialise and he moved on with Munnariyippu. Venu
also revealed that he started scripting Munnariyippu with
Sreenivasan in his mind; but later found
that Mammootty is more suitable for the character
C K Raghavan.
Venu is currently planning for a new project; but the cast is
not finalized yet. The director said that the scripting is in the
pipeline and the project will get an official announcement soon. He
also confirmed that he has no plans to quit cinematography and will
be continuing his favourite profession in future.
Mohanlal is currently filming for Lailaa O
Lailaa, directed by Joshiy. Amala Paul will play the
female lead in the move; which will also have Tamil actor Sathyaraj
in a pivotal role. The actor has also committed Sathyan Anthikad
and Madhupal's untitled projects and Anil directed
