Balachandra Menon, the veteran actor-director, is all set to venture back into filmmaking soon. Menon himself revealed the new through a post in his official Facebook page. He has been staying away from the industry since last few years.
The title of the project, cast and the other details are yet to be revealed. The director says that he wants to make a film, which will bring the audience back to theatres; despite increased ticket rates.
The National award winning actor says that he is extremely keen to bounce back with a new project. Balachandra Menon has made a comeback into acting with Raj Prabhavathi Menon's Buddy, which has Anoop Menon in the lead role.
He has also appeared in Ranjith's Mammootty starrer Kadal Kadannu Oru Mathukutty, in a prominent role. But both the movie failed to impress the audience and critics; and were declared as flops.
Balachandra Menon's last directorial venture was Dhe Ingottu Nokkiye, which has Jayasurya and Jagathi Sreekumar. The film faced lots of problems in the making stage, due to the sudden demise of Bharath Gopi, who had a pivotal role in the film.
Dhe Ingottu Nokkiye opened into highly negative reviews and miserably failed at box office. Balachandra Menon has also been active in the acting field at the same time, with some exceptional movies, including Lal Jose's blockbuster Classmates.
