Bilathikadha dropped; Mohanlal and Ranjith join hands for a new project
We had earlier reported about ace filmmaker Ranjith doing a romantic entertainer titled ‘Bilathikadha’. Mohanlal, Maniyanpilla Raju’s son Niranj and Anu Sithara were supposed to play lead roles in the movie. Ranjith had scripted the movie jointly with Sethu. It was initially planned to go on floors earlier this year but it kept postponing due to various reasons.
The latest we hear is that the project has been dropped. Instead, Mohanlal and Ranjith will be joining hands for a fresh project. Shoot for this yet-to-be titled movie is slated to kick-start on May 14. Mohanlal has allotted 30 days for the movie after which he will be joining the sets of Prithviraj’s directorial debut Lucifer.
Mohanlal and Ranjith team have an enviable track record. Even before turning a director, Ranjith has scripted many hit films for Mohanlal like Devasuram, Aaraam Thampuran, Ustad, Narasimham etc. They last teamed up for Loham, which failed to impress the critics. Fans and common audience are eagerly looking forward to a quality film from the duo this time.
Their upcoming movie is being produced jointly by an UK based company Lilypad Motion Pictures and Varnachitra Big Screen. It is slated to hit screens for this year’s Onam in August.
