Mammootty to pen dialogues for his bilingual film

April 11th, 2010 - 8:20 pm ICT by IANS  

Konkana Sen Bangalore, April 11 (IANS) Mammootty’s bilingual movie will go on floors in May and producer K. Manju says the superstar will write the dialogues for the Malayalam version of the film.
The Kannada version is titled “Shikari”, but the title for Malayalam version has not yet been finalised.

“He was so impressed with the script that he offered to write the dialogues of the film himself. We were excited when he accepted the responsibility of writing the dialogues. His book ‘Kazchapadu’, a collection of essays in Malayalam, has been widely appreciated,” said Manju.

Film’s director Abhay Simha said: “I had contacted Mammootty a year ago with the script to make a film in Kannada. He took time to read the complete script and was impressed. Though he had agreed to work in my film, the dates were not finalised.”

“Meanwhile, I got well-known Kannada film producer (Manju) to make the film and Mammootty also suggested to make it in two languages, including Malayalam, as the script was strong and universal.”

Simha says that the film will go on floors once Mammootty is back from his vacation.

“We also worked out other details. Just last week I met Mammootty in Mumbai, he has agreed to work in my film from the month of May. He has gone abroad for a holiday. He will return in the first week of May. We may start shooting in Bengaluru from May second week,” Simha, who won National Award for his debut film “Gubbachchigalu”, told IANS.

The makers haven’t finalised the actress. Earlier, Konkana Sen Sharma was approached and she had even agreed to be part of the film. But Simha says it would be doubtful if Konkana renews her interest in doing this film as she is busy working in other movies.

“The heroine and other technical cast will be finalised in a few days,” said Simha.
