Mohanlal to play the lead in an upcoming Tamil-Telugu-Malayalam trilingual film
Superstar Mohanlal currently has a slew of projects lined up and if reports are to be believed he has committed for one more. He will be playing the lead in an upcoming trilingual directed by Kannada director Prem. The movie is being made in all four South Indian languages, with Shivarajkumar as the lead in the Kannada version and Mohanlal in the other three.
Director Prem has already completed the first schedule of the movie’s Kannada version titled as The Villain. The team shot for several scenes in London and will next be moving to Ladakh. It is a big budget movie that has an ensemble star cast. Eega actor Sudeep, Amy Jackson, Mithun Chakraborty and Sruthi Hariharan are part of the cast. Reportedly, only Sudeep will be retained in all four languages.
If the project materializes, it will be Mohanlal’s first trilingual film. The superstar has a considerable fan base in the Telugu speaking states with the success of his films like Janatha Garage and Manyam Puli. He has also done a Kannada movie Mythri with superstar Puneeth Rajkumar.
It is still not clear how Mohanlal has allocated dates for this upcoming trilingual. The superstar has a jam-packed schedule and hence an official confirmation about him starring in the movie is awaited. He is currently on a break after wrapping up the shoot for Lal Jose’s Velipadinte Pusthakam. The highly anticipated Odiyan, directed by VA Shrikumar Menon, is expected to go on floors next month. B Unnikrishnan’s Villain is also gearing up for a massive release.
