- Mammootty would be doing a film titled 'Newsmaker', to be directed by Deepan. Deepan had delivered one of the biggest hits of last year 'Puthiya Mukham'.
'Newsmaker' would be produced by George, Mammootty's personal assistant. The film would be produced under the banner of Cincil Celluloid.
Deepan would also be directing Prithviraj in the film 'Hero'. 'Newsmaker' would commence only after 'Hero's is complete, and would be Mammootty's Onam release in 2012.
One of the most talked about upcoming movies, Venicile Vyapari, will have a big surprise from Mammootty.
The star, who has joined the sets after the Income tax raids issue, is getting ready to make another milestone appearance through the movie.
Mammootty will appear in three different roles in the film.
Kavya Madhavan and Poonam Bajwa are teaming up with the megastar in the lead roles.
The film by Shafi will feature Mammootty in the role of a coir merchant and a police officer. The crew wants to keep the star’s third get up a secret.
The last time, Mammootty was seen essaying three get ups was in the movie Paleri Manikyam: Oru Pathira Kolapathakathinte Katha, which won him the best actor award last year at the State awards.
Venicile Vyapari which is scripted by James Albert of the Classmates fame is slated to release this November.
South Indian superstar Mammootty's son Dulquar Salman’s marriage will take place in December.
Speaking to the media for the first time since the IT raids at his offices and residences, Mammootty said: "Yes, the engagement is over and the marriage is fixed for December 22 to be held in Chennai and a reception here on December 26. It will be a very solemn occasion and a private affair."
Asked about his future daughter-in-law, Mammootty said, "They are a North Indian Muslim family settled in Chennai and she has just finished her architecture. The alliance has been fixed by the elders from both families and is not a love marriage."
The superstar recently joined the sets of Veniceile Vyapari, directed by Shafi with Kavya Madhavan as the heroine. Veniceile Vyapari is scripted by James Albert and produced by veteran Murali Films Madhavan Nair.
