Earlier we had reported that Megastar Mammootty and ace director Priyadarshan are in talks to join for a movie after 18 years. Now what we here is that he has also brought in Janapriya Nayakan Dileep also on board. This is hinted by Priyadarshan himself to a media recently. Priyadarshan is currently working on the script for the movie.
Many interesting trivia facts are behind this project. The first being this is Priyadarshan’s only fourth Megastar Mammootty movie in his illustrious career that has over 90+ movies and a majority of them being movies with his close buddy – Superstar Mohanlal. Another interesting fact is that Priyan last did a Mammootty movie in 1998 – Meghan which ended up as an average grosser at Box office but gained family audience when aired in television networks.The next fact is that Janapriya Nayakan last did a Priyadarshan movie in 2004, Vettam. Vettam is also the only movie for which Dileep joined hands with Priyadarshan. Thus this will be Dileep’s second outing with the director after a gap of 13 years. Mammootty and Dileep last joined for a movie in 2013 for the Hit Kammath and Kammath that ran over 70 days and had a record weekend gross upon its release. The movie ended up as HIT in Kerala box office in spite of the negative word of mouth.
Priyadarshan’s last outing was with Superstar Mohanlal starred Oppam which gave him a comeback as the movie became a Super Hit in Kerala and is set to be remade in Kannada by Superstar Shiva Rajkumar. Mammootty’s Vishu releases The Great Father is continuing its massive run with over a 50 crore collections from world wide box office, while Puthanpannam more or less has ended up its business amassing close to 7.5 crores from Kerala boxoffice. Dileep’s Georgettan’s Pooram has performed decently with over 10 crore collections in Kerala alone ending up as a Hit in its first two weeks of its run though further reports are unavailable.
