Sun Network’s Malayalam channel Surya TV has also bagged the satellite rights of Asif Ali’s “Kohinoor”, Dileep’s “Life of Josutty”, among the latest Malayalam releases.

The real life story missed the Oscar nomination by a whisker. The film also has Jewel Mary, Sreenivasan, Joy Mathew, Salim Kumar, Balachandra Menon and Siddique, among others, in pivotal roles.
Earlier, the Malayalam entertainment channel had also bought the satellite rights of Mammootty’s latest film “Utopiayile Rajavu”.
