As we already know, MT Vasudevan Nair’s award winning novel Randamoozham is getting made as a movie with superstar Mohanlal playing the central character of Bheemasenan. ‘Odiyan’ director VA Shrikumar Menon is set to direct this epic film. UAE based businessman Dr BR Shetty is investing a whopping Rs 1000 crores for the project. The much awaited announcement regarding when shoot kick-starts was made last day by the makers through social medias.
Randamoozham, touted to be the biggest film in Asia, will go on floors from July 2019. MT’s novel is actually based on the Indian epic Mahabharatha, told from the perspective of Bheemasenan.
