Massive projects lines up for Mohanlal; Empuraan to start rolling after Barroz
The official announcement of the second part of ‘Lucifer’ was made only recently. The movie titled as ‘Empuraan’ will have Prithviraj once again donning the director’s hat while Mohanlal plays the lead role. Murali Gopy is scripting the movie that will be producing by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. The makers have planned to start shooting by the second half of 2020.
Prior to that, Mohanlal will be finishing the works of his other pending commitments. He is currently shooting for ‘Ittymaani Made In China’, directed by debutant duo Jibi and Joju. Shoot for the movie is nearing completion after which he will be joining the sets of Siddique directorial ‘Big Brother’.
In October, Mohanlal will start works on his ambitious directorial debut ‘Barroz’. The fantasy flick that has script penned by Jijo Punnoose of ‘My Dear Kuttichathan’ fame is set to be made entirely in 3D format. It is again produced by the superstar’s own banner Aashiravd Cinemas.
Next year, along with ‘Empuraan’, Mohanlal also has one more biggie lined up. As per trustworthy reports, he has committed for a film titled ‘Kaliyugam’ with Santosh Sivan. Gokulam Gopalan of Sree Gokulam Movies will be producing this mega budget film that is touted to be a period drama.
Priyadarshan’s big scale film ‘Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham’, which has Mohanlal playing the titular role is currently in the post-production phase. The movie is expected to hit screens by the end of this year or early 2020.
