Sobhita Dhulipala was recently seen in Made In Heaven and had received rave reviews for her performance. She will be next seen in a bilingual drama – Moothon that also stars Malayalam star Nivin Paul which is all set to have its premiere at TIFF.
“The film is part of the special section at TIFF. When I first read the script many years ago, I was blown by it. Now, I am glad that it is getting its due. I am looking forward to showing this film to people at the festival, interacting with the international press and movie aficionados,” says the actor of the Geetu Mohandas-directed venture that revolves around a young child in search of his elder brother.
Stating that the movie beautifully flits from being a crime thriller to a surreal fantasy, Dhulipala says, “The script is a winner at the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, so the story is credible. These movies deserve a variety of audience and not just a remote release in Kerala.”
The bilingual drama (Hindi and Malayalam) has also been selected as the opening film of Mumbai Film Festival (MAMI) 2019. Anurag Kashyap, a co-producer on the project, is working on the Hindi dialogues, hoping to meet the October deadline.
