Mohanlal allots 45 days for Ranjith’s Bilathikadha!
We had earlier reported about ace filmmaker Ranjith’s doing a romantic entertainer titled ‘Bilathikadha’. Maniyanpilla Raju’s son Niranj and Anu Sithara are playing the lead roles in the movie, which also has an extended cameo by superstar Mohanlal. The movie was supposed to go on floors earlier this year but it kept postponing due to various reasons.
As per latest reports, the movie is all set to go on floors next month. Mohanlal has alloted 45 days out of his schedule for this movie. He will be part of Bilathikadha’s team from May 10 to June 25. Though it was initially reported that his is just a guest role, it now looks like a full fledged character role. Interestingly, the other big M, Mammootty was supposed to do this role but he opted out due to his prior commitments.
Ranjith has scripted Bilathikadha jointly with writer Sethu. The movie is touted to be a romantic tale set in London. Kaniha, Jewel Mary, Kalabhavan Shajon, Suresh Krishna, Shalin Zoya, Dileesh Pothan will be seen in supporting roles. Directors Shyamaprasad and Johnny Antony are also part of the cast.
Prashanth Raveendran will be cranking the camera and Vinu Thomas will be handling the music department. The movie is being produced jointly by UK based company Lilypad Motion Pictures and Varnachitra Big Screen. Bilathikadha is slated to hit screens for this year’s Onam in August.
