It looks like Mammootty and Nayanathara are gearing up for their next release "Bhaskar the Rascal" directed by hit maker Siddhiqque. The latest we hear is that the team has now entered the dubbing session of the movie in Kochi.

Sources say that the "Bhaskar The Rascal' team has completed the shooting for almost 66 days and has only nine days of shooting left, which means the audience will get a chance to catch a glimpse of the movie soon.

Reports suggest that "Bhaskar The Rascal" will hit screens in April, in which case it might lock horns with Mohanlal-Manju Warrier movie "Ennum Eppozhum".

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

Nayanthara had earlier acted with Mammootty in "Thaskara Veeran" and "Rappakal". As per reports, the actress is yet to join the sets of the film as she is busy with her Tamil project. Nayanthara has previously worked with Siddhque for his movie "Body Guard" starring Dileep. The actress' last Malayalam movie was Shyamaprasad's psychological drama "Elektra".

"Bhaskar The Rascal" is touted as a typical Siddique movie with elements of comedy, dance and music. The director's last movie was "Ladies and Gentleman" (2013), starring Mohanlal and Krish J Sathar, which received poor reviews from audience and critics. 

Mammmootty is currently basking in the success of his latest flick "Fireman", directed by Deepu Karunakaran. The film will also star Nyla Usha and Unni Mukundan.

"Bhaskar the Rascal" is being produced by Anto Joseph. The movie will also have star cast of Isha Talwar, Harishree Ashokan, Kalabhavan Shajon, Janardhanan, Sanusha and Renji Panicker.
