Rajeev Ravi, the cinematographer/ director just won the national award for Best Cinematographer for his work in his wife Geethu Mohandas’ acclaimed film Liar’s Dice.
He had of course made a successful directorial debut before, with the Malayalam movie Annayum Rasoolum which starred Fahad Faasil and Andrea Jeremiah in the lead. Now he’s set to repeat the familial pattern by casting Farhaan as the lead in his next film opposite newcomer Ahaana Krishna, daughter of actor Krishna Kumar.
The movie is titled Njaan Steve Lopez, and Farhaan is to play the title role.
The story has been scripted by Santhosh Echikkanam and Sudheesh Pappu will handle the cinematography – of course the visuals in the film will have the director’s touch more than usual in this case, one supposes.
The rest of the cast hasn’t been announced yet and the details regarding the plot remain under tight wraps. Given the reception that Annayum Rasoolum got, one sure hopes the director has another unique premise up his sleeve and all the hush hush tactics surrounding the project is for good reason.
We wait eagerly sir…
