Isha Talwar replaces Mamta Mohandas in Prithviraj’s next!
Prithviraj is currently in the US shooting for his upcoming movie Detroit Crossing aka Ranam. Days after the movie has gone on floors, the movie has got a major change. Mamta Mohandas who was supposed to play the female lead has now been replaced by Isha Talwar.
Detroit Crossing was initially scheduled to go on floors during the May-June months but it got pushed due to some unknown reasons. Mamta Mohandas could not accommodate her dates as she got busy with the shoot of Fahadh Faasil’s Carbon, directed by Venu.
Detroit Crossing, directed by debutant Nirmal Sahadev is about the lives of the immigrant community in Detroit, Michigan. Prithviraj plays a Tamil street gang member in the movie, which is inspired by some real life incidents.
Prithviraj will be portraying a grey shaded role in the movie. Isha Talwar will be seen in an equally important role. Her’s is a very a strong and mature character that also has several shades and layers. She was last seen in Malayalam in an extended cameo role in Dileep’s 2 Countries, released last year.
Detroit Crossing aka Ranam falls under the category of a dark neo-noir thriller, perhaps the first such Malayalam movie. Noted Tamil actors like Ashwin Kumar and Sampath Raj are also part of the cast. The team will be shooting for nearly 50 days in US. Ranam has most of its crew members from overseas.
Cinematography is being handled by Lukasz Pruchnik, who previously worked in Fahadh Faasil’s Monsoon Mangoes. Dhuruvangal 16 fame Jakes Bejoy has been roped in to handle the music department. The movie is being produced by Anand Kumar Payyanur under the banner of Yes Cinema Company.
