Mammootty, the megastar of
Mollywood,is reportedly all set to essay the lead role in
senior filmmaker Sathyan Anthikad's next movie. The
project is said to be an experimentalfilm, which will have
Mammootty in a different role.
Sathyan Anthikad last teamed up with Mammootty for Oral
Mathram in 1997. Even though the duo remains very close
friends; they haven't worked together for the past 18 years. He
recently appreciated Mammootty for his work in Pathemari.
But in some interviews, Sathyan Anthikad has stated that it is
difficult to direct Mammootty; as the star always craves for
something new in his every film. But Sathyan, on the other hand, is
not much willing to experiment with his films.
That is a quality which brings Sathyan Anthikad closer to the
actors like Mohanlal and Jayaram. Unlike Mammootty,
Mohanlal and Jayaram are willing to do the usual formula films;
which makes things easier for the director.
Sathyan Anthikad's Mammootty movies, including Sreedharante
Onnam Thirumurivu, Artham, No.1 Snehatheeram Bangalore North
etc werehighly appreciated by the critics and successful
at the box office.
Mammootty has recently wrapped up the shooting of AK Sajan's
upcoming movie Puthiya Niyamam. The actor has
some highly promising projects in his kitty; including Uday
Ananthan's White and Nithin Renji Panicker's debut
