A new poster of director Aashiq Abu’s much-awaited horror thriller ‘Neelavelicham’, was released on Saturday, which marks the 115th birth anniversary of legendary writer Vaikom Muhammed Basheer. The poster presents actor Tovino Thomas in the role of Basheer.

Taking to Facebook, Tovino shared the poster and wrote in the caption, “Happy birthday to the much beloved Basheer.”

‘Neelavelicham’, an adaptation of Basheer’s short story of the same title, features several prominent Malayalam actors such as Rima Kallingal, Roshan Mathew and Shine Tom Chacko in lead roles.

Lately, the film’s first single ‘Anuraga Madhuchashakam’, featuring Rima dancing to Sreejith Dancity’s choreography had garnered wide attention.

The song, which has KS Chithra’s vocals, is the new version of the classic ‘Anuraga Madhuchashakam’, originally sung by S Janaki in 1964.

‘Neelavelicham’ marks Tovino's fourth movie with Aashiq Abu after 'Maayanadhi', 'Virus' and 'Naaradan'.

Earlier, it had been announced that Prithviraj and Kunchacko Boban will play lead roles in the movie. But the duo reportedly opted out from the project due to date clashes.
