Mammooty's Shaji Kailas directed, Aroma Mani produced Christmas movie has started rolling at Trivandrum.
This untitled movie is an investigative thriller and is a sequel of yesteryear super hit Sibi Malayil directed August 1 (1988).
August 1 was itself ripped off from the Hollywood hit The Day of the Jackal. Mammootty is now essaying the same role of Perumal an investigative cop. Yakshiyum Njanum fame Meghna Raj is the heroine.
Lalu Alex, Nedumudi Venu and Thalai Vasal Vijay are also playing important roles.
However, Shaji Kailas- Mammootty team has not been working in the recent past, as their last film together early this year Drona was a big flop. Even then Mammootty is keeping faith in the director who had made mega hits like The King and Valliyetan with him.
