Finally, he completed the script of a movie titled ‘Taj Mahal’. But unfortunately, he went missing in 2017 before the movie could be materialised.
His three sisters have been searching for him in every railway stations and bus stations since then. Now, the sisters are engaged in pasting posters at public places seeking help to trace their missing brother.
According to them, Noushad - a native of Kannur, left home in 2017.
Recently they obtained a script written by him during the search for him.
Noushad’s younger sister Shemi got his handwritten script from a DTP centre at Ernakulam High Court junction. The DTP centre owner informed her that Noushad himself had handed over the script to them. The DTP centre owner was asked to return it when he comes back.
His sisters have visited various places after getting information on him. But once they reach the place, there will be no trace of Noushad there.
Once a police officer from Palakkad contacted Noushad’s friend with some information on him. The family then visited Palakkad in search of him. But this time also, they failed to meet him.
Being a great fan of actor Dileep, Noushad penned the script for him. He wanted Parvathy Thiruvothu or Aparna to play the female lead opposite Dileep in the movie.
He had planned to cast lead actors including Mukesh, Madhu, Suraj Venjaramoodu, Innocent, Salim Kumar, Mamukoya, Harishree Ashokan, Lal, Nedumudi Venu, Prem Kumar and Vinay Fort in his movie.
Interestingly, Noushad went missing when actor Dileep was booked and arrested over the controversial actress abduction case. The family suspect that he was worried that he won’t be able to do movie with Dileep.
“When he finished the first half of the script, Noushad visited me and narrated it for me. While concluding our meeting, he said that he will come back once he completes the script. But he did not return,” said actor Mamukoya.
