Kochi: South India’s acting star Kunchacko Boban will play the lead role in renowned director Ranjith Sankar's next film titled ‘Ramante Eden Thottam’. The upcoming movie also marks the first time association of the actor-director duo.
Speaking to Times of Oman, Kunchacko said he is excited to do the project. “I will be joining hands with the renowned director Ranjith Sankar. It’s my first movie with him but as everyone knows, he (Ranjith) is someone who puts passion, talent and hard work into his creations and I am extremely excited to do this film,” he said.
Fresh from the success of his recently released blockbuster 'Pretham', Ranjith will himself produce the film under the banner ‘Dreams N Beyond’.
Officially announcing his new project on Facebook on Wednesday, Ranjith heaped praise on the dedication Kunchacko shows to transform himself into the character of Raman in the movie.
“I love it when stars go on a break in a pursuit to reinvent themselves. Think most of my good films and characters happened in such pursuits.. When I narrated Raman to this man first thing he told me was that he will need three months to prepare for the part.. To get in shape physically and mentally. .And that he won't be shooting anything else in those three months. That's such a confidence boost for any film maker. To Malini He is Ram..To Elvis He is Raman..And His Eden Thottam is special..Kunchacko Boban plays HIM,” Ranjith wrote on his Facebook page.
'Ramante Eden Thottam' will start rolling from February 2017.
