Mammootty's upcoming Malayalam movie The Great Father is special for Kerala audience as it marks the association of the megastar with actor Prithviraj Sukumaran, who is one of the producers bankrolling the big-budget project.

After unveiling the first-look poster of The Great Father on Mammootty's 65th birthday on 7 September, another unofficial poster of debutant Haneef Adeni directorial venture that has started doing the rounds on social media, reveals that the movie will hit the screens as a Christmas release on 24 December. However, since the makers haven't announced the news officially, the release date cannot be confirmed as of now.

The upcoming movie, which was earlier rumoured to have been named My Dad David, is expected to feature Mammootty in a stylish avatar. Actress Sneha pairs opposite the megastar in her comeback movie in Malayalam after six years. Tamil actor Arya is also part of the project, which is his third outing in Malayalam after Urumi and Double Barrel.

Produced by Prithviraj, Arya, Santhosh Sivan and Shaji Nadesan under the banner of August Cinema, The Great Father is the second outing of the production house with Mammootty after the 2013 movie, Kadal Kadannu Oru Maathukutty. The movie started rolling in September with major locations in Wagamon, Kochi and Thrissur.
