Director Omar Lulu says he is backtracking on his decision to make ‘Vaariyamkunnan’. Omar Lulu wrote on Facebook that he made the decision after watching the movie '1921'. He says that no one can say more about ‘Vaariyamkunnan’ than what is said in this movie.
Omar Lulu says ECH Group MD Iqbal Marconi saw his Facebook post and called to let him make the film. “I was told not to look at the money to make the film. In that joy, when I saw '1921' directed by Shashi Sar again with the script of Damodaran Mash a few days back, I realized that there is no need for a ‘Vaariyamkunnan’ anymore. Not only Damodaran Mash and Shashi Sir show ‘Vaariyamkunnan’, but also Alimusliar and the Wagon Tragedy all spoke beautifully in 1921, including the progress of the Caliphat;” wrote Omar Lulu.
Earlier, Omar Lulu said that he will direct ‘Vaariyamkunnan’ if a producer who is ready to spend Rs 15 crore comes. Omar added that he will be able to do a never-before-seen action film. Omar Lulu's reaction came after news broke that Ashiq Abu and Prithviraj had withdrawn from the announced film.
Omar Lulu wrote on Facebook: "If a producer who is willing to spend Rs 15 crore on Babu Antony Ichayan without looking at pre-business; comes, there will be a new ‘Vaariyamkunnan’ with a lot of action scenes in Malayalam cinema like never before."
