The sequel to one of the finest Mohanlal film Udayananu Tharam has started at Vaikkom near Kochi.
Debutante director Sajin Raghavan is making the film sarcastically titled Padmashree Bharath Dr. Sarojkumar!
Sreenivasan, who wrote the original film is once again doing the script and playing the title role.
Mamta is the heroine of the movie which will have Suraj Venjaranmoodu playing a new character Muttathara Sabu, the president of the Sarojkumar fans association.
The director Sajin Raghavan said: ” You cannot call it a sequel. We have just taken some of the characters from Udayananu Tharam in new situations like Jagathy Sreekumar’s Pachalam Bhasi, Salim Kumar’s Rafeeq, and Mukesh’s Babykkuttan . Mohanlal’s Udayabhanu will not be there but will be mentioned.”
Two other new additions are Vineeth Sreenivasan and Fahad Fazil in important roles. It will be an out and out satirical movie on the superstars of Kerala. It is produced by Vysakha Rajan under his banner Vysakha Films.
