If we are to go by the latest reports, the shooting of much-anticipated Malayalam movie The King and The Commissioner has been put on hold. Sources claim that the filming has stopped following the recent Income Tax raids on the houses and offices of Superstar Mammootty and producer Anto Joseph.
It is reported that the shooting of the movie The King and The Commissioner was going on in Kochi, when the IT raids took place. Actor Mammootty had to be present before IT investigators. So actress Sanjjana immediately took the next flight back home to Bangalore after the shooting was cancelled.
It is also reported that the ill-health of Suresh Gopi was another reason for scrapping the shooting of The King and The Commissioner. Suresh Gopi is playing a police commissioner in the film. He is said to have reduced 15 kilos to look thinner, which led him to face health problems and take leave from filming.
