Unlike his earlier police roles, which were highly intense in nature, Mammootty will essay an interesting police character in the untitled movie, which is said to be a comical thriller.
If the reports are to be believed, popular Bollywood actress Tabu will essay the female lead opposite Mammootty in the movie. Nithin Panicker himself pens the script for the movie, which is produced by Anto Joseph and Renji Panicker.
Nithin Panicker, who is an MBA graduate, has earlier assisted some popular filmmakers of Malayalam movie industry, including his father Renji Panicker and Shaji Kailas.
