Director Aashiq Abu is all set to start shooting the much-awaited venture Gangster very soon. The film will be scripted by Ahmed Siddique and Abhilash S Kumar.
Now there could be a surprise as well. Our sources have conveyed that Alphonse Putharen, the director of Neram is all set to edit the film!
Also, a different source tells that Mammootty will be playing a don, hailing from Kasaragode. So after Thiruvananthapuram accent in Rajamanikyam, Thrissur accent in Pranchiyettan and the saint and Kannur slang in Kunjananthante Kada, this could be another accent that could fetch Mammootty a much needed hit.
Aashiq Abu had announced the film after Salt N’ Pepper but it got delayed. Now the director has completed the shooting of his latest venture, Idukki Gold.
Aashiq Abu who is spearheading the trend of new generation movies in Mollywood is all set to start his pending movie ‘Gangster’ soon after the completion of his project on production ‘Da Thadiya’. With Mammootty as the hero, Aashiq had been fine tuning the scripts of ‘Gangster’ for two years to make it a different underworld movie. Aashiq is planning to position it as one of the very different don movie ever to have witnessed in Mollywood.
Meanwhile, the pre production works of his ‘Da Thadiya’ is gaining steam. The movie which will have relatively fresh faces of DJ Shekhar and Sreenath Bhasi as the heroes, will tell a plot about the lifestyles of fat and obese people of the state. Aashiq will present a funny song with the lyrics Lokam Undayanu Bhai, Buddhy mandayilaanu bhai,…… NJaaninganeyaanu bhai, athilenthaanu bhai (The world is a round,brother….. Brain is in the head,brother………… I am just like this, brother…….. What is the problem in it, brother?) Which will be the central theme of the movie. Aashiq Abu is planning to start the shoot for the movie by this September and to present it on theatres by this December itself.
Not many of us would have forgotten the swank and stylish Mammootty in ‘Daddy Cool’.
The film’s director has just completed his new film ‘Salt ‘n Pepper’ that has Lal and Swetha Menon in the lead roles.
After the release of Salt ‘n Pepper, Aashiq would be joining hands with Mammootty again for a film titled ‘Gangster’. The film is expected to be one of the most stylish underworld films ever made in the country.
Parthiban and Rohini Hathangadi would do key roles in the film. The heroine of the film is yet to be finalised.
