Dileep will do his first-ever double role with this new film, directed by Sasi Shankar. The movie is reportedly the adaptation of a successful play.

Acclaimed director Shaji N. Karun who recently swept the awards with his VAANAPRASTHAM has announced his next feature movie, which will be based in a short story written by writer T.Padmanabhan, KADAL (THE SEA).

Mohanlal shall return to team up with Shaji in this movie, but the main highlight is that Jaya Bachchan shall be acting in the movie.

The movie is only scheduled to start only by mid-2001. Plans are to shoot in locations like Ladakh, Rajasthan and Banares. Though the story on which it is based is titled KADAL the sea, the locations are all away from sea. The story revolves around a character who has this fascination for the sea but has never ever seen it.
