Well, Priyadarshan might not have made much movies with Mammootty, but it is known to many that both the actor and director do share a good friendship. They have known each other since their entry to the industry.
Now, rumours are rife that Priyadarshan would be directing Mammootty, once again, after a gap of close to 18 years. Their previous association was for the film Megham, which hit the theatres in the year 1999.
If such a project happens, it would mark the fifth association of the actor and the director. Priyadarshan has directed Mammootty, in 4 movies, so far.
Reports are also doing the rounds that the upcoming Mammootty-Priyadarshan project will be a film in the lines of a road movie. Neither Mammootty nor Priyadarshan have given any confirmation regarding the project.
Meanwhile, Priyadarshan's next project is expected to be in Hindi. The Hindi remake of Mohanlal starrer Oppam is also in the pipeline for the director.
On the other hand, Mammootty has couple of big projects in his kitty. His next release will be his film with young film-maker Syam Dhar. He will also play the lead role in Shamdatt's streetlights and Ajai Vasudev's upcoming big project.
