‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’ is the old saying.How true it is as proved by Sathyan Anthikad. Sathyan who was to direct a film with newcomers for Central Pictures and release it during summer, has now put the project on hold.
Sathyan will now instead make a movie for his good friend Mohanlal to be produced by Antony Perumbavoor.
In a way Sathyan is coming to his friend’s rescue. Mohanlal is going through the worst phase in his career and 2010 was a nightmarish year for him as all his releases bombed big time.
The trade lost confidence in his ability to deliver at the box-office. It was at this juncture that the actor decided to go back to his old friends like Priyadarshan and Sathyan Anthikad.
Mohanlal will start shooting for Sathyan’s film from April after he completes China Town.
The Sathyan: Mohanlal project will be the actor’s 2011 Onam release.
Sathyan Anthikad will be making a family film with lots of sentiments and light humour. But it has been confirmed that Sreenivasan will not be there as part of the team .
Sathyan who usually sticks to his regulars has signed up Venu as the cameraman and Ilayaraja will provide music.
