Mammootty’s forthcoming film, to be directed by the Rafi-Mecartin duo ‘Love in Bangkok’ which was earlier named ‘Love in Singapore’ shooting starts today in Karaikudi in Tamilnadu. Later the team would move to Singapore for rest of the shoot.
Earlier Singapore was fixed as one of the locations, but now due to practical reasons, especially since the makers preferred Bangkok to Singapore, the location has been changed and hence the change in name.
To be produced under the banner of MHM Productions, ‘Love in Bangkok’ has Mammootty playing the role of a very rich scrap dealer, who is called by everyone as ‘Machu’. And he has a habit of reading and treasuring old books that reach his hand. At a stage Machchu takes some very strange decisions regarding his life and the decision proves to be a turning point in his life.
The Mumbai model Keerthi Kulhar who features in the Taj Mahal tea ad with Saif Ali Khan is going to be Mammookka's heroine in the film.
Kochi and Bangkok will be the two prime locations for the shoot of this film. ‘Love in Bangkok’ is expected to hit the screens on January 26th next year.
