Malayalam actor Mammootty is on a roll. The actor is now set for his next with director Siddique in the upcoming "Bhaskar The Rascal". The film, which is scheduled to kick-start by December, is touted as a typical Siddique movie with elements of comedy, dance and music.

"The upcoming project will be made in my signature style, with comedy, action and dance thrown in. All in all, you can call it a family entertainer. As of now, we have not decided on who will play the heroine," Siddique told The Times of India.

Harishree Ashokan and Janardhanan will also be a part of the project.

Meanwhile the director's last movie was "Ladies and Gentleman (2013), starring Mohanlal and Krish J Sathar. The film, however, received poor reviews from audience and critics alike.

"Bhaskar the Rascal" is Siddique's project with Mammootty after a 10-year gap. They had earlier worked together for movies like "Hitler" (1996) and "Chronic Bachelor" (2003), which were huge success in Kerala box office.

Meanwhile, Mammootty is currently shooting for "Fireman", directed by Deepu Karunakaran, known for his films like "Crazy Gopalan", "Winter" and "Teja Bhai and Family". The film will also star Nyla Usha and Unni Mukundan. The film, which is touted as a thriller, will see Mammootty as a committed fireman, deeply focused in his service. 

Soon after the release of "Bhaskar The Rascal", Siddique will focus on his project with director Lal. The duo's upcoming project is reportedly titled as "King Liar" starring Dileep. The film that marks Siddique-Lal's joint venture after a gap of 20 years is touted as a laughter riot. "King Liar", which is scheduled to hit screens by mid-2015, will be scripted by Siddique and directed by Lal.
