Balachandra Menon, the veteran
actor-director, is all set to venture back into filmmaking soon.
Menon himself revealed the new through a post in his official
Facebook page. He has been staying away from the industry since
last few years.
The title of the project, cast and the other details are yet to
be revealed. The director says that he wants to make a film, which
will bring the audience back to theatres; despite increased ticket
The National award winning actor says that he is extremely keen
to bounce back with a new project. Balachandra Menon has made a
comeback into acting with Raj Prabhavathi Menon's Buddy, which has Anoop
Menon in the lead role.
He has also appeared in Ranjith's Mammootty starrer Kadal Kadannu Oru
Mathukutty, in a prominent role. But both the movie failed to
impress the audience and critics; and were declared as flops.
Balachandra Menon's last directorial venture was Dhe Ingottu
Nokkiye, which has Jayasurya and Jagathi Sreekumar. The film
faced lots of problems in the making stage, due to the sudden
demise of Bharath Gopi, who had a pivotal role in the film.
Dhe Ingottu Nokkiye opened into highly negative reviews
and miserably failed at box office. Balachandra Menon has also been
active in the acting field at the same time, with some exceptional
movies, including Lal Jose's blockbuster Classmates.
