Jeethu Joseph’s next with Mohanlal is a big budget action-thriller that will be shot across various countries!
As reported by us earlier, the ‘Drishyam’ duo of Mohanlal and Jeethu Joseph are set to reunite. Their new film is getting ready to go on floors on December 18. Expectations will naturally be on the higher side since their last film, ‘Drishyam’, was a phenomenal success. While that film was a family-oriented thriller, Jeethu Joseph plans to make an unusual mass entertainer this time. According to him, it is a big budget film that will be shot across various foreign locations like Egypt, London and Istanbul.
In a recent interview, the director confirmed about teaming up with Mohanlal. He is quoted saying, “It’s not definitely not another Drishyam. I’m planning to make it as a mass movie, through not in the usual conventional style. It will be an action thriller with a realistic touch. The story is set in several countries which makes it a big budget film.”
Popular South Indian actress Trisha will be seen as Mohanlal’s wife in this film. Durga Krishna of ‘Vimaanam’ fame has reportedly been cast as Trisha’s sister. Jeethu Joseph is currently in London for location scouting. Official announcement will be made as soon as the director finalizes the other cast and crew members.
Jeethu Joseph meanwhile is awaiting the release of two of his films – ‘Thambi’ and ‘The Body’. ‘Thambi’ starring Karthi and Jyothika in the lead roles is a family-oriented thriller while ‘The Body’ is the official Hindi remake of popular Spanish flick, ‘El Cuerpo’. Emraan Hashmi, Sobhita Dhulipala and Vedhika play the lead roles in it.
