Megastar Mammootty is all set for his second Kannada film after Love (2005). He flew straight to Bangalore after vacationing in the US. The southern superstar was largely influenced by the quality of the script. He said that it had a totally new and fresh concept. Mammootty is also very excited to work in the film with a new director, as young and debutant directors had helped his career progression so far, by offering him a variety of roles. Mammootty is also writing the dialogues for the Malayalam version of the film. He said that he had re-entered the Kannada film industry again, because the script was impressive. Mammootty said that he is playing a double role in this film, but the two characters never meet. One of them is an IT professional and he gets a half written novel in his friends room, by chance. The novel is about the pre-Independence period, where a hunter falls in love with a village girl. The film is scheduled to start shooting from July. But the heroine of the film is yet to be decided. The director added that the Kannada actor Mohan will be seen in a special role too. Shikari is written and directed by the Kannada film director Abhay Simha, who was awarded the National Award for Gubbachchigalu. The famous Kannada film producer K.Manju is the producer of this film. Mammootty adds that he cannot deny the common link between Karnataka and Kerala and would be happy to do films from both the regions. Oru Cinemakatha is the next project of Mammootty. The film too has a new director. It is scheduled to commence shooting in the first week of June. The role played by Mammootty is that of a school teacher, whose ambition is to be a film actor. With his latest Malayalam film Pokkriraja doing mass collection in the theatres, Mammootty is also busy launching his son Salman in a film to be directed by Linguswamy which will be in Malayalam. Interestingly, Dulquar Salman would be getting a new name shortly, one which fits in with his image. Yuvan Shankar will be the Music director and Mammootty will be seen doing a cameo. The movie is expected to have a lot of action, drama, glamour and sentiments. Linguswamy revealed the news of launching Mammootty�s son. He said that his relation with Mammootty is very good, as his first film Aanandam in Tamil had Mammootty and was a big hit at that time. So, when Mammootty requested Linguswamy to launch Salman, he agreed wholeheartedly.
