After his success run with noted movie "Mili", starring Amala Paul, director Rajesh Pillai is set for his next with actor Jayasurya and Kunchacko Boban. The news was shared by the director himself during the success party of the movie "Mili".
For Rajesh Pillai, Kunchacko Boban has been part of his debut movie "Hridayathil Sookshikkan" and his most famous flick "Traffic", but it will be his first movie with Jayasurya.
With the new announcement, industry as well as fans are eagerly waiting to see how the movie will shape up. With his two previous movies, everyone has become aware of Rajesh Pillai's skills; and he has been a trend setter. The director has proved his versatility with each of his movies which were all in different genres.
The chemistry of Kunchacko Boban and Jayasurya will surely flare up Rajesh Pillai's imagination. The duo had earlier worked together for movies like "Swapnakoodu" (2003), "Kilukkam Kilukilukkam" (2006), "Lollipop" (2008), "Gulumaal: The Escape", "Four Friends" (2010), "Three Kings" (2011), and "101 Weddings".
The shooting of the untitled flick is expected to kickstart by July 2015 and the movie will be scripted by Arul Lal, who had scripted movies like Jayasurya–VK Prakash movie "Thank You". Santhosh Thundiyil will crank the camera and the movie will be produced by Ashiq Usman under the banner of Milestone Cinemas. The rest of the cast and crew of the movie are yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, Rajesh had earlier announced another Malayalam film "Motorcycle Diaries" starring Kunchacko Boban, Nivin Pauly and Vishaka Singh in the lead roles. It will be his next venture after "Traffic". But, the movie did not take off as expected and stalled because of reasons which has not yet been revealed. It is said to be the story of a Bullet over four decades. The motorcycle will pass through four owners from Leh to Ladakh and the film is about discovering the real India.
At the same time, the director is looking forward for the release of the Hindi version of "Traffic", which stars Manoj Bajpai, Parambrata Chatterjee and Divya Dutta.
