Confirmed: Mohanlal and Siddique to team up for a big budget action-comedy!
Mohanlal has his kitty loaded with some huge projects. Some of Malayalam cinema’s biggest movies are being planned with him namely Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham, Lucifer, Randamoozham etc. But the actor is trying to maintain a balance by doing the regular commercial flicks as well. For a while now, there have been talks about Mohanlal teaming up with director Siddique for such a project. The veteran filmmaker has now confirmed that his next is indeed with Mohanlal.
According to Siddique, his upcoming movie with Mohanlal will be a big budget one loaded with action and humour. He is yet to start scripting but added that the movie will go on floors sometime by the end of this year itself. The two last worked together in Ladies and Gentlemen, which was released back in 2013. Though the movie was released amidst huge expectations, it failed to impress the viewers and flopped at the box office.
Mohanlal and Siddique will be trying to rectify the mistakes and hit the success mark this time. The director’s Bhaskar Oru Rascal, the Tamil remake of his own Malayalam movie Bhaskar The Rascal, was released last Friday and has met with mixed response. Siddique is planning to helm the movie’s Hindi verison as well, casting process for which are still on. Apart from that, he has also committed for a movie with Dileep.
