Mohanlal and Ranjith likely to team up once again!
Mohanlal has a slew of exciting films lined up this year. Besides playing the lead role in Odiyan, Ajoy Varma’s thriller and Prithviraj’s directorial debut Lucifer, he is also doing an extended cameo role in the Nivin Pauly starrer Kayamkulam Kochunni. He is also in talks with some other directors and Ranjith is said to be one among them.
Reportedly, Ranjith had pitched an idea to Mohanlal last week and he seems to have liked it. The director is now in the process of developing it into a full fledged script. Discussions are still in the early stages and nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Antony Perumbavoor is likely to produce the movie under Mohanlal’s own banner Aashirvad Cinemas.
Ranjith and Mohanlal have worked together in a number of films. In fact, the former made his directorial debut, Ravanaprabhu. Some of their films include Chandrolsavam, Rock & Roll, Spirit and Loham. The director has been on a lean patch for sometime now but in spite of that expectations will be high when he joins hands with Mohanlal.
Meanwhile, Ranjith is prepping up to start the shoot of his next film ‘Bilathikadha’, starring Niranj and Anu Sithara. He has co-written this romantic flick along with Sethu. The movie is set entirely in Europe and Mammootty will be seen playing a brief cameo role in it. They are planning to start shooting this coming March.
