Nadirsha returns with Hrithik Roshan of Kattappana

Actor turned director Nadirsha returns after his blockbuster debut Amar Akbar Anthony. His next directorial venture, which is curiously titled as Kattappanayile Hrithik Roshan, will feature scriptwriter and actor Vishnu Unnikrishnan in the lead role. The movie is produced by actor Dileep in association with Dr. Zachariah Thomas. Nadirsha turned up with a first look poster of the movie on his official Facebook page on April 1st.

Kattappanayile Hrithik Roshan is written by Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Bibin George. According to sources close to the director, the movie will start rolling from September. “My next film = ‘Kattappanayile Hrithik Roshan’. Since the story is the hero of this film, the story writer, Vishnu Unnikrishnan will play the role of hero,” says Nadirsha in his Facebook post. The movie has Sujith Vasudev to crank the camera and the rest of the cast and crew will be announced shortly.

Nadirsha managed to have a dreamlike debut through the Prithviraj flick Amar Akbar Anthony last year. The movie joined Prithviraj bandwagon of super hits and earned Nadirsha positive reviews. AAA broke all the misconceptions about Nadirsha’s relatively belated directorial debut and skyrocketed him into one of the most promising debutante director of the year.

 “Frankly, I didn’t expect the film to turn out to be such a massive hit. But I was quite confident that viewers would like it. Everyone who heard the story before shooting started also had the same opinion. The actors also believed it would be a success when production and dubbing were going on. But the film’s success was beyond all the expectations,” he revealed in a previous conversation.

AAA was also turned out as a launching pad for the scribes Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Bibin George. The duo’s decade old camaraderie and links with director Nadirsha through mimicry stages, laid their path to the writer’s table. They managed to deliver a social message well packed with comic fillers though AAA. . When Bibin George and Vishnu Unnikrishnan, two youngsters from the mimicry realm, approached me with this story, I could sense that it is something I can handle as a filmmaker. That is how this film happened,” said Nadirsha.

When the AAA writers and director reunite under Dileep’s production, Mollywood can look forward for another romcom.
