Mammootty starring epic drama Karnan is one of the most anticipated upcoming projects of Malayalam movie industry. But, according to the grapevine, the project directed by Madhupal has been shelved.
The rumour mills point out that Mammootty has never mentioned the film in his recent interviews when he opened up about his other upcoming projects. There is absolutely no information about the project.
Even though several speculations regarding Karnan are doing rounds on social media, director Madhupal and writer P Sreekumar have been maintaining silence upon the same. The uncertainty regarding the project strengthens the rumours.
It was reported that Mammootty will be the titular character Karnan in the movie, which will depict the last days of the epic character. Director Madhupal has even confirmed that the team will soon begin the pre-production activities.
The director stated that the movie will start rolling in 2017, only after Mammootty completes his upcoming projects. It was reported that the megastar will be allotting a 100-days call sheet for the movie, which demands a long schedule.
However, it is a surely a disappointing news for the audiences and industry members, who were eagerly waiting for the release of the movie. We hope that Mammootty and Madhupal will soon reveal the actual status of the project.
