Due to the rave accolades for his most recent film, Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, Mammootty, the megastar of Malayalam cinema, is currently enjoying a moment. The seasoned actor is now stealing hearts with his performances as James and Sundaram in the movie. He collaborated on the project with famed director Lijo Jose Pellissery. Mammootty is now starring in the debut feature film of outstanding cinematographer Roby Varghese Raj. The project’s official trailer has been released. Its working title is Megastar 421.
Mammootty recently spoke with the prominent Tamil media outlet Open Pannaa in which he discussed his future movies, including Megastar 421. To the great amazement of the audience, the seasoned actor surprisingly announced that the suspense thriller’s official title is “Kannur Squad.” In a few weeks, the project’s creators should formally reveal both the title and the first look poster. In his conversation with interviewer Karthick Krishna, Mammootty further disclosed that the Roby Varghese Raj film is a special undertaking that has a substantial budget.
As previously said, the film, which serves as cinematographer Roby Varghese Raj’s directorial debut, is hailed as an original investigation thriller centred around a murder case. The movie, which is being extensively filmed in the various places of Pala in Kerala and North India, is rumoured to feature the megastar as a senior police officer. The film’s stellar star cast includes Sunny Wayne, Sharafudheen, Gayathri Arun, Azeez, and others in supporting parts. Filming on the project began on December 27, 2022.
The eagerly anticipated movie was made by Mammootty himself through his own production company, Mammootty Kampany. Both the screenplay and the language for the movie were written by well-known actor Rony David Raj. Following the enormous success of Bheeshma Parvam, Sushin Shyam has collaborated once again with Mammootty on the songs and original soundtrack. Wayfarer Films, the production company run by Mammootty’s son and well-known actor Dulquer Salmaan, will distribute Kannur Squad.
