Kerala Floods: Onam releases are postponed indefinitely
As the continuous rains and floods battered the state, filmmakers are forced to postpone the Onam releases. Movies including Oru Kuttanadan Blog, Kayamkulam Kochunni and Varathan have officially confirmed the postponement. The new release dates will be announced shortly. Most of the movie theaters situated in Kerala, apart from Trivandrum, Kollam and Kasaragod areas, have been shut down due to the floods.
Filming of movies too is affected by these unforeseeable situations in the state. Reportedly, the sets made for the movie Njan Prakashan, directed by Sathyan Anthikad, starring Fahadh Faasil in the lead role, were washed away in the floods. Meanwhile, actors including Tovino Thomas, Kunchacko Boban, Jayasurya, Indrajith Sukumaran, Parvathy and Manju Warrier are busy with the flood relief activities.
