Rima joins Mammooty as the heroine in ‘Gangster’ directed by Aashiqu Abu. Mammooty comes in the role of an underworld leader Akbar Ali Khan. The new young star Fahad Fasil and the ‘Da Thadiya’ fame Sekhar Menon handle some important roles in the movie. ‘Gangster’ is the next project of Aashiqu Abu after his ‘Salt & Pepper’. This was getting delayed due to lack of date from Mammooty. Now he is hoping to start the shooting in October.
