Director Fazil to play a crucial role in Mohanlal’s Lucifer
The much hyped Mohanlal starrer Lucifer went on floors recently. Actor Prithviraj is making his directorial debut with this movie scripted by Murali Gopy. Touted to be a political thriller, the makers are planning it as a mass entertainer that is worthy of Mohanlal as an actor and a star. Antony Perumbavoor is producing the movie under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas.
Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi and Indrajith have already been confirmed in the movie’s cast. Tovino Thomas, Murali Gopy, Manju Warrier and ‘Queen’ fame Saniya Iyappan are also rumoured to be part of the movie but the makers are yet to give an official word. Latest reports suggest that ace filmmaker Fazil is playing a crucial role in the movie. The veteran, who has made a number of memorable films, has been away from the industry for a long while.
As per reports, Fazil is playing the role of a priest, who is like a father-like figure to Mohanlal’s character, in Lucifer. It is worth a mention that it was Fazil who introduced Mohanlal to the world of cinema with his debut directorial, ‘Manjil Virinja Pookkal’. Later they worked together in films like Poovinu Puthiya Poonthennal, Manichitrathazhu, Harikrishnans Vismayathumbathu etc. They both have also acted together in Nokketha Dhoorathu Kannum Nattu, in which the director played a cameo role. It will be interesting to see them sharing screen space in Lucifer after a gap of 33 long years.
