Puzhu, which is expected to feature the megastar in a never-seen-before avatar, marks his first professional collaboration with his son, the popular actor Dulquer Salmaan. The highly anticipated project, which is directed by newcomer Ratheena Sharshad, will be distributed by Dulquer Salmaan's production banner Wayfarer Films.

Coming to CBI 5, the fifth and last installment of the highly popular CBI Series will mark the comeback of director K Madhu, after a long gap. The project, which is scripted by SN Swami will once again feature Mammootty in the role of Sethurama Iyer, the intelligent yet soft-spoken CBI officer.
