Can Diphan save Mammootty?

The actor has roped in the Puthiya Mukhan director to helm his comeback

After a disappointing run at the box office and having been on the receiving end of a massive Income Tax raid, Mammootty is attempting to make a dashing comeback with director Diphan’s next. The movie has been titled Newsmaker. The superstar, who is busy with multiple projects, has chosen Diphan to help him stir the BO again. Diphan had delivered one of the biggest hits of 2010, Puthiya Mukham, starring Prithviraj. Newsmaker will be produced by Mammootty’s personal assistant George under the banner of Cincil Celluloid. The shooting will only begin once the director finishes his current project Hero with Prithviraj. Newsmaker is slated to be Mammootty’s Onam release for 2012.
