After facing many hurdles, the blockbuster Malayalam movie, Ennu Ninte Moideen, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Parvathy, completed one year of its release on Monday, Sept. 19, 2016. The movie's director R S Vimal and Prithviraj shared the happy news via their social media pages to celebrate the film that changed their career graph.
"One year to Vimal's dream becoming a reality!," Prithviraj wrote on his Facebook page, while sharing the letter written by Vimal a day before the initial release of the movie, based on the real-life story of BP Moideen and Kanchanamala. Vimal, who completed the movie after facing many issues during the filmmaking, has remembered late Moideen, whom the director believes to have helped him from somewhere.
Budget of "Karnan"
Through the latest Facebook post, Vimal has also revealed the estimated budget of his second directorial venture that features Prithviraj as Karnan. "Next is Karnan. I am sure Karnan will help me to face all the troubles that come across. The movie is expected to be completed with a budget of over Rs. 300 crore," the filmmaker announced through his Facebook page.
The first-look motion poster of the epic drama was opened to positive response from the audience. The director had earlier told International Business Times India that the big budget movie will be simultaneously made in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi with four big stars of each industry. When asked if the upcoming movie is based on the mythological character Karna, the filmmaker said: "We all have heard and read many stories from Mahabharata. This movie is not based on something that I have discovered, but it will be my explication on the subject through Karna."
Karnan, which is said to be completed with graphics and special effects, is expected to be the Baahubali type movie in Malayalam. Produced by Venu Kunnappilly under the banner of Kavya Films, Karnan will be shot in Haridwar and Varanasi.
