Mammootty will join hands with hitmaker Joshiy, in his next directorial venture. The duo, who made so many superhits like New Delhi, Nirakottu, Dhruvam and Nair Saab, are joining hands after a gap of 6 years. Mammootty last teamed up with Joshiy in Twenty 20, the biggest multi-starrer movie of Indian Cinema, produced by actor Dileep for the Malayalam actors association, AMMA.
Joshiy's Mammootty starrer will go on floors immediately after the filming of his upcoming movie Lailaa O Lailaa, starring Mohanlal and Amala Paul in lead roles. Reportedly, scenarist Ranjan Pramod has started the scripting for the project. Rest of the cast is yet to be decided.
Joshiy's last two releases Lokpal starring Mohanlal and Avatharam starring Dileep earned mixed reviews and became average grossers at the boxoffice. The director hopes to recreate the magic done by Run Baby Run, with his upcoming movie Lailaa O Lailaa, which marks his reunion with the team Run Baby Run.
Mammootty is back to form after a series of flops, with the excellent reviews earned by Munnariyippu and boxoffice success of Rajadhi Raja. The actor is currently filming for Ranjith Shankar's upcoming movie Varsham. He will start filming for Jean Paul Lal's upcoming untitled movie and Siddique directed Rascals after winding up Varsham.
