In a turn of events, Malayalam films appear to be luring major talent from other film industries. Recent endeavors by Dileep are evidence of such. The actor will next share screen time with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Tamannaah for his forthcoming project with Arun Gopy, following his collaboration with Anupam Kher, Jagapati Babu, and Prakash Raj in Rafi’s Voice of Sathyanathan.
In the first week of September, a pooja ceremony will mark the beginning of production on the high-budget movie, which is scheduled to begin next month. While there were rumors that Suresh Gopi, Indrajith Sukumaran, and Arjun Ashokan were also cast members. A source from the production team told that Tamannaah and Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh have both reportedly agreed to participate in the high-profile project.
Neil has previously worked in South India in the Telugu film Saaho, starring Prabhas, and the Tamil film Kaththi, starring Vijay. Both Tamannaah and Neil will make their Mollywood debuts in the upcoming Arun Gopy movie. Udaykrishna, whose recent Malayalam movies include Mohanlal’s Aarattu and Monster and Mammootty’s Christopher, has scripted the film, which is produced by Ajith Vinayaka.
Dileep is currently filming in Mumbai for Rafi’s Voice of Satyanathan. In addition to Joju George and Veena Nandakumar, other important actors in the movie include Anupam Kher, Jagapathi Babu, and Prakash Raj. Before the crew started filming in Mumbai earlier this month, the entertainer, which deals with a serious theme, had finished its Kerala schedule. The film, which is anticipated to be Dileep’s first theatrical release since the epidemic, also takes place in Delhi.
In the near future, Dileep will start production on the desi superhero movie Parakkum Pappan, which will be helmed by rookie Viyaan Vishnu and written by Rafi. Anirudh Ravichander is reportedly the film’s music composer.
