In director Johnny Antony’s forthcoming film Thoppil Joppan, Mammootty will play an “achayan” character. In yesteryear hit Kottayam Kunjachan, Mammootty had played such a role and it remains one of the most popular characters played by the superstar.
Thoppil Joppan is a laugh riot. Andrea Jeremiah and Deepti Sati are playing the heroines. The shooting will start in April.
Nishad Koya, the scenarist of Ordinary and Madhura Naranga, is the writer.
Johnny has earlier directed Mammootty in films like Thuruppugulan, Ee Pattanathil Bhootham and Thappana.
Mammootty has wrapped up Uday Ananthan’s White and is currently shooting for Ram’s Peranbu.
