Mammootty
is
all
set
to
play
the
lead
role
in
one
of
the
segments
of
Netflix’s
upcoming
anthology.
The
project,
which
is
based
on
the
short
stories
of
veteran
writer
MT
Vasudevan
Nair,
will
have
10
short
films.
As
per
the
latest
reports,
Mammootty’s
film
in
the
untitled
anthology
is
helmed
by
the
celebrated
filmmaker
Ranjith
Balakrishnan.

Earlier,
it
was
reported
that
Mammootty’s
segment
from
the
Netflix
project
will
be
helmed
by
acclaimed
filmmaker
Lijo
Jose
Pellissery.
However,
the
latest
reports
suggest
that
Lijo
Jose
backed
out
from
the
project
due
to
creative
differences
and
his
busy
schedule.
Instead,
the
OTT
giant
has
roped
in
Ranjith
Balakrishnan
to
helm
the
segment.
