Babu Janardhanan casts Mammootty in his first movie, Bombay March 12.
Babu Janardhanan had taken us back to the time of the emergency and naxalism in Thalappavu, the film which he had scripted and was directed by Madhupal. And now, with his debut directorial venture, Babu Janardhanan, who has also scripted films like Achchanurangaatha Veedu, Avan Chaan-diyude Makanand Vasthavam, goes down memory lane once again.
Bombay March 12, which is Babu Janardhanan’s debut directorial venture, has Mammootty in the lead and goes back in time, to the early 1990’s. The film zooms in on the Mumbai riots of 1993 and strives to talk about the sufferings of the common people during those turbulent times.
Says Babu Janar-dhanan, “Yes, the project is confirmed. Though shooting dates are yet to be confirmed, we plan to begin it in March or April’.
