Aashiq Abu’s next with Soubin Shahir and Rima Kallingal

Aashiq Abu is set to team up with Soubin Shahir next. The director’s better half Rima Kallingal will be seen as the female lead. She is also producing the film, which is scripted by Muhsin Parari, who had earlier co-written ‘Virus’ and ‘Sudani From Nigeria’. The makers are planning to start shooting very shortly.

Earlier, it was widely reported that Aashiq Abu and Unni R would be teaming up for a fantasy film about a ‘gandharvan’. Soubin Shahir was supposed to play the lead in it. But since then, there has no been further updates about the project. It now remains to be seen if Aashiq Abu is making the same film with Muhsin Parari as the script writer or has he dropped it.

Muhsin and Aashiq Abu share a good rapport. They had worked together in ‘Virus’. Aashiq is also producing ‘Halal Love Story’, which is co-written by Muhsin. The latter had also announced that he would be directing a film titled ‘Thallumala’ with Tovino and Soubin in the leads. Aashiq Abu was supposed to produce that film but it didn’t happen due to various reasons. ‘Anjaam Pathiraa’ producer Ashiq Usman is producing the film now with Tovino and Sharafudheen in the leads. Khalid Rahman has taken over from Muhsin to direct it. Muhsin is still a part of the project along with ‘Thamaasha’ director ‘Ashraf Hamza’ as the other writer.
