After completing ‘Bachelor Party’ which is full of super stars, Amal Neerad has started pre-production work on his next movie. The movie titled ‘ACN’ (Arivaal Chuttika Nakshathram) stars Megastar Mammootty and Young Superstar Prithviraj in the main roles. Massive preparations are underway for the shooting expected to start by the end of this year. Since the movie depicts the 1940’s, a lot of research has to go in to the preparations, said Amal.
The director also said that artificial sets and backgrounds would be required to go with the times. Another hassle to be overcome, he says, is to synchronise the dates of Mammootty and Prithviraj who are both very busy artists.
In the meantime, another talk going around is that Mammootty had asked for a change in the story which is causing delay.
Amal said that he does not create stylish scenes with any particular motive in mind. He was answering to a question from a scribe as to whether the same kind of stylish scenes as in ‘Big B’, ‘Sagar Alias Jacky’ and ‘Anwar’ would be seen in the new flick. When such films are made, these scenes happen naturally. But Shankar Ramakrishnan scripted ‘ACN’ will be a
totally different movie, according to Amal.
