Mammootty is currently busy with the shooting of the fifth installment of the highly popular CBI Series. The much-awaited project, which has been tentatively titled CBI 5, marks the comeback of senior filmmaker K Madhu. Interestingly, Mammootty took to his social media handles and 'officially' leaked his CBI 5 first look, to the much surprise of his fans and followers.
The megastar decided to leak a location still himself, after a morphed picture that claimed to be his first look as Sethurama Iyer went viral on social media. "Official Leak ! #CBI5 #untitled," he captioned the post. In the location still, Mammootty is seen standing in his iconic CBI look with a formal outfit and his hands folded on the back.
Mammootty has also confirmed that the highly anticipated project is yet to get an official title, on his social media post. The Malayalam cinema audiences, especially those who grew up watching all the four previous installments of the CBI Franchise, are super excited for the 5th installment. Mammootty's first look from the sets of CBI 5 is now taking social media by storm.
SN Swamy, the writer of CBI 5 had recently confirmed that Mammootty is not playing an aged version of Sethurama Iyer in the movie. According to the veteran scenarist, the fans of the megastar and CBI Series might not like it if the character is portrayed as an aged, retired officer in the fifth installment.
Along with Mammotty, the original cast members including Jagathi Sreekumar, Mukesh, and Saikumar are a part of CBI 5. Soubin Shahir, Renji Panicker, Asha Sarath, Ramesh Pisharody, and others have joined the team as the additional cast. Jakes Bejoy has composed the original score for the project. Akhil George is the director of photography. The Mammootty starrer is bankrolled by the prestigious banner Swargachithra.
