Malayalam cinema has recently seen many star kids making a mark in the film industry.
Dhyan Sreenivasan, son of filmmaker and actor Sreenivasan has already made his presence felt in the industry as an actor and the latest news is that the young talent is all set to make his directorial debut.
Reports suggest that Dhyan will be directing a film starring his elder brother and actor-director Vineeth Sreenivasan and the young sensation Dulquer Salmaan.
It was Vineeth who introduced Dhyan as a lead actor in his 2013 directorial venture "Thira", a thriller film, which also had Shobana in the lead. It received positive reviews and was one of the top hits of the year.
In "Thira", Dhyan played the character of Naveen whose sister gets kidnapped in front of him by a gang of human traffickers. He, along with Dr Rohini Pranab (Shobhana) are on a mission to track down the culprits and save the girls from them. The young talent also received the Asianet Film Awards for the Best Debut Actor.
Meanwhile, Vineeth is currently busy with his upcoming film "Ormayundo Ee Mukham" opposite Namitha Pramod, which is touted as a romantic comedy entertainer directed by debutant Anvar Sadik.
Apart from acting and directing, Vineeth is also popular in Malayalam cinema as a singer and script writer. He made his acting debut in the 2008 film "Cycle" and later went on to do many films like "Makante Achan", "Traffic", "Chappa Kurishu", "Padmashree Bharath Dr Saroj Kumar" and "Om Shanti Oshana".
All his directorial ventures like "Malarvadi Arts Club", "Thattathin Marayathu" and "Thira" were critically acclaimed and were huge box office hits.
If the latest reports ring true, then it will mark a rare occurrence in the Malayalam industry, with three filmmakers from a same family. However, nothing is officially confirmed regarding the film's casting.
Dhyan had earlier assisted his uncle, M. Mohanan in his film "916". He had fared well as an actor and one will have to wait and see whether he will keep up the reputations of his father and his brother.
The upcoming flick by Dhyan is reportedly produced by Muhammed Ali under the banner of Minhal Productions.
