Mammootty sure is going to get larger-than-life in his new film Big B. After getting pop singer Usha Uthup to play the role of his mother in Pothen Vaava, the superstar is now getting ready to bring in a former Ms India to play the role of his mother!
Amal Neerad, the film's director, has convinced Nafisa Joseph, model-actress and former Ms India, to play the role of Mammooty's mother in the new film. Nafisa Joseph never showed a keen interest in getting herself established as an actress. She had always been very, very selective about the kind of roles that she played. In the film, she is going to be the mother of four grown-up kids, including Mammooty.
Now that the director and superstar have picked up almost everybody else, they'll soon start seriously looking for a heroine. Speculations are on that the heroine is going to be someone from Bollywood.
