Shoot for megastar Mammootty’s Madura Raja is currently progressing at a brisk pace. Last day, actor Salim Kumar celebrated his wedding anniversary with his wife Sunitha in the movie’s sets. Mammootty hosted the function by organizing cake cutting and other celebrations. Along with sharing photos in his social media account, Salim Kumar also thanked Mammootty, director Vysakh, producer Nelson Ipe, writer Udhayakrishna and all other cast and crew members.
Madura Raja is the spin-off of Mammootty’s character from the blockbuster film, Pokkiri Raja, also directed by Vysakh. Udhayakrishna, who last teamed up with Vysakh for the mega blockbuster Pulimurugan, is scripting Madura Raja as well.
The movie has a massive star cast which includes three leading heroines – Anusree, Shamna Kasim and Mahima Nambiar.
Popular Tamil actor Jai is said to be playing a prominent role in the movie. Telugu actor Jagapathi Babu, Nedumudi Venu, RK Suresh, Vijayaraghavan, Salim Kumar, Aju Varghese, Dharmajan Blogatty, Biju Kuttan, Siddique, Kailas, Bala, Manikuttan, Noby and many others are also part of the cast.
In the technical side, the same team from Pulimurugan – cinematographer Shaji Kumar, composer Gopi Sundar, editor John Kutty and action choreographer Peter Hein – have been retained. Vysakh is planning Madura Raja as a more racy and technically advanced movie than Pokkiri Raja.
The movie is scheduled as a summer release next year.
