Mammootty's first release of 2009 will be the Rafi-Mecartin directed comedy entertainer Love In Singapore, which is confirmed for January 23. Navaneet Kaur is his heroine in the film.Mammootty's bi-lingual Vande Mataram was to release for Pongal (January 14), but has once again been postponed. So distributor 'Vysakha' Rajan did some juggling and brought forward the release of this Mammootty film.
The grapevine has it that Mohanlal's 2009's first release Red Chillies which was to be released on January 9 by Vysakha Films has been indefinitely postponed. It seems the producer wanted an hike in the price of the film which was made on first copy basis, but the distributor refused to budge.
Vysakha who had booked theatres for the Mohanlal film will now compensate them with a Mammootty film. Love In Singapore, is releasing big in 100 plus screens in Kerala on January 23.
