Actor Mammootty, on Saturday (January 23) evening, shared an intense still from his much-anticipated film, The Priest. The film, which marks the maiden collaboration of Mammootty and Manju Warrier, was supposed to hit the screens in summer 2020. However, the lockdown imposed due to Covid-19 delayed the film’s production. Directed by debutant Jofin T Chacko, the script is written by Shyam Menon and Deepu Pradeep.
The photo, which was recently shared by Mammootty on his social media page, saw him sporting an intense look. He was also seen wearing a cowboy hat and fans couldn’t control their excitement. Within few minutes, hashtags like #ThePriest and #Mammootty started trending on the internet.
Last week, Mammootty unveiled released the teaser of the film. Though it didn’t reveal any details about the characters, it looks like the film is an intense supernatural thriller where the protagonist deals with the secrets beyond science.
The Priest also features Nikhila Vimal, Sreenath Bhasi, Saniya Iyappan and Jagadish in important roles. Mammootty has already completed shooting for the film. An official announcement regarding the film’s release date will be made soon.
Meanwhile, Mammootty also has One which is currently in post-production stage.
