Chennai: Shooting is going on at a brisk pace for the Dileep-starrer '7 Sundara Raathrikal' directed by Lal Jose.
The camera started rolling on September 25, just a month after Jose's hit movie 'Pullipuliyam Aatinkuttiyum' starring Kunchako Bobban was released.
Jose is introducing a new face Parvathy Nambiar in the movie, which also has Murali Gopi and Rima Kallingal in key roles.
"It is being done at short-notice. The plan is to get it released on December 20," Jose said.
The story is of a man in his late 30s getting married and he throws a party for his friends. The movie starts off from that point and the incidents that happen seven days before the marriage form the crux of the story.
This is his 20th movie and seventh with Dileep as the hero: 'Chandranudikkunna Dikhil', 'Meesa Madhavan', 'Rasikan', 'Chanthupottu', 'Mulla', 'Spanish Masala' are the other films.
Jose, who scouts around for new ideas and new faces in his movies, does not believe he can create a talent. When he takes in a new face, he keeps in mind the freshness he/she can bring in to the film and how they can contribute as a whole and not that he is giving a fresh lease of life to them in the industry, Jose said.
There are cases of talented newcomers who have acted in his films going unnoticed because these did not do well.
He strongly believes that if a talented youngster does well and goes on to better projects, it is their fate, luck and God’s will. Jose believes he cannot take the credit for that. "I will be happy that I noticed them and cast in them in my movie before others did," he said.
