Malayalam filmmaker Shafi is now teaming up again with superstar Mammootty in his upcoming movie titled Venicile Vyapari, which is produced by Murali Films. The director-actor duo will start shooting for the film from July. The movie is expected to hit the screens across the state in October.
Cycle and Classmate fame James Albert has penned the screenplay for Venicile Vyapari. The title of the movie has been inspired by Shakespearian play 'Merchant of Venice'. The story happens in Alleppey, which is known as the Venice of East. So Shafi has found this title apt for the story.
Director Shafi has given two consecutive hits like Marykkundoru Kunjadu and Makeup Man. Now, he is all excited to work with Mammootty again in his new film. He says that Venicile Vyapari will have a heart touching story and it will be a rollicking comedy entertainer.
However, Shafi has already worked with actor Mammootty in a few films and proved successful. They first teamed up for the film Thommanum Makkalum in 2005 and it was super hit at the Box Office. Later, they worked together in films like Mayavi in 2007 and Chattambinadu in 2009. These two films were also good money spinners.
