 Prithviraj announces his next BIGGIE, a horror thriller!


Actor Prithviraj is teaming up with director Aashiq Abu for an upcoming movie titled 'Neelavelicham', an adaptation of noted writer Vaikkom Muhammad Basheer’s novel with the same title. The movie was announced by director Aashiq Abu on the 113th birth anniversary of veteran freedom fighter and writer of Malayalam literature Muhammad Basheer.

Taking to his social media handle, Aashiq Abu revealed the first look poster of the film. Along with the post, Aashiq penned a detailed note on his Facebook page. The first look poster of Neelavelicham features a spooky old Kerala style house that mildly glows with the moonlight.
