Malabar, scripted by Ranjith and directed by G S Vijayan with Mammootty as the hero, will have a new name now.
The film has now been titled Bavuttiyude Namathil. The film is being made under the banner of Ranjith's Capitol Theatre.
Kavya Madhavan plays the heroine. The shooting will start soon.
The grapevine has it that Mammotty is keenly looking forward to the film to make a big comeback to his winning ways.
Thappana, his latest release, has got mixed response. Mammootty's next release will be Jawan of Vellimala, directed by debutant Anoop Kannan.
