For those wondering what filmmaker Anil Radhakrishnan Menon is doing after the surprisingly weird Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi, here is the answer. The trailer of his upcoming movie Diwanjimoola Grand Prix, for which he has roped in Kunchako Boban to play the lead, has surfaced online to a warm welcome from netizens.

Following the ongoing trend in Mollywood, the crew conducted extensive auditions to find the apt faces for the roles.
Kunchako Boban, who has had a wonderful ride so far, including critically-acclaimed movies like Take Off, returns as a dedicated and loyal bureaucrat in the movie.
The film, co-written by Prashanth Nair IAS, who is popularly known on social media as "the collector bro", along with director Anil Radhakrishnan Menon, is said to be a social satire with bike-racing as the backdrop.
Mollywood moviegoers were a little disappointed when the director came up with the surprising idea a group of committed people to saving a village on the verge of extinction in his last Mollywood outing, Lord Livingstone 7000 Kandi, which was not welcomed all that enthusiastically by viewers.
The director is all set to raise the bar set by his previous films, like North 24 Kaatham and Sapthamashree Thaskaraha, even higher this time with Diwanjimoola Grand Prix.
