Mammootty will do the lead role in Mallanum Mattevanum, a film directed by hit-making director Shafi.The film will be scripted by Benny P. Nayarambalam. This year, the duo has given Mammootty one of the biggest hits in recent times, Annan Thampi. A couple of other films like Thommanum Makkalum and Mayavi featuring Mammootty have been big hits.
Shafi and Benny P. Nayarambalam have again come up with a funny catchy name for this venture, Mallanum Mathevanum. These are the names of the characters in a children’s story in Malayalam, so the title gives the feel of a simple, clean and humorous film. Details about the theme, cast etc. are yet to be divulged.
The film will be produced by A.B.S. combines which is formed recently by Shafi, Benny P. Nayarambalam and production controller Anto Joseph. It's learnt that the film may start rolling in the first half of 2009. The banner's first film Lollypop has just completed shooting.
