The film’s director Aji John said the script for the Malayalam version is over and now they are scouting for a writer to pen the script in Tamil.
“The earliest we can start shooting for the film is in August because a few more things have to fall in place. We want the shooting to take place simultaneously for the Malayalam and Tamil version, hence the delay,” John told IANS by phone.
Ajith, 22, is the younger son of Antony and a graduate in English literature from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi.
The dialogues of the Malayalam film have been written by Anoop Menon and the Malayalam version would be distributed by Marikar Films.
“The story of the Malayalam version has been penned by Ajith itself as the story was his own. The photo session of the film was completed in Goa,” said John.
The film tells the tale of two North Indian families who are rivals in business.
John says that “Ajith is the leading star” but he refused to reveal about other cast members, saying: “Please allow us to retain a bit of suspense as the star cast is being finalised.”
John is currently looking for location for his forthcoming film “Namaku Parkkan”.
” ‘Oberoi’ shooting will begin only after I complete my present film and the release of Ajith’s film is expected only next year,” said John.
