Mammootty starrer upcoming movie directed by Siddique is retitled as Bhaskar The Rascal. The actor will play the title role in the movie, which is said to be an out-and-out comedy entertainer. Mammootty is teaming up with Siddique, after a long gap of 10 years. The duo last joined hands for the blockbuster movie Chronic Bachelor.
Bhaskar The Rascal is produced by Anto Joseph under the banner Anto Joseph Film Company. The movie will go on floors immediately after the filming of Mammootty's upcoming movie Fireman, directed by Deepu Karunakaran. The makers are planning to release Bhaskar The Rascal for Vishu 2015. Rest of the cast & crew and further details of the movie are yet to be revealed.
Earlier, it was rumoured that Mammootty and Siddique will be teaming up for the sequel of their blockbuster movie Hitler. But both the actor and director slammed the rumours by stating that they are not interested in the concept of sequels and confirmed that they will be joining hands for a fresh subject.
Siddique's last directorial venture Ladies And Gentleman, was an average grosser at the box office. The director tasted success with his Dileep starrer Bodyguard, which became a blockbuster and later got remade into all other South Indian languages; as well as Bollywood. Siddique made his Bollywood debut with the remake of Bodyguard, which had Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles.
