Director Aashiq Abu, who was planning to start the shooting of the Mammootty starrer Gangster soon, has announced that he will be doing Idukki Gold first. According to him, due to Mammootty's busy schedules, Gangster can only be started by October.
He plans to start Idukki Gold by May. Meanwhile, he will be coming up with one of the films in the Anju Sundarikal anthology as well. His film reportedly has Biju Menon and Kavya Madhavan in the cast.
Aashiq Abu is regarded as one of the most promising directors in Malayalam after Salt N' Pepper and 22 Female Kottayam.
However his latest offering Da Thadiya failed to make much of an impression.
His performance as an actor in Annayum Resoolum was well appreciated.
