Mohanlal’s Drama slated for Onam release!
Mohanlal is currently in UK shooting for Drama, his upcoming movie with director Ranjith. Shoot is nearing completion and the latest we hear is that the movie will hit screens for Onam, this coming August. Mammootty’s Oru Kuttanadan Blog and Nivin Pauly’s Kayamkulam Kochunni are expected to be the other big Onam releases.
Drama is an eagerly awaited movie as Mohanlal-Ranjith duo have given many memorable films in the past.
Nothing much is known about the movie as the makers have kept utmost secrecy about the genre or other details. The recently released first look poster had a chariot and couple of high end cars which gave the feel of a royal wedding. Interestingly, the makers of Drama had filmed the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, last month.
Drama was a hastily planned project as Ranjith’s initial plan was to direct a romantic flick titled Bilathikadha. Maniyanpilla Raju’s son Niranj and Anu Sithara were supposed to play lead roles in the movie with an extended cameo by Mohanlal. However, due to some unknown reasons, the project got dropped and Ranjith worked on a new script with Mohanlal as the lead. Eventually, the actor managed to squeeze in dates from his busy schedule for this movie.
Arundhathi Nag, Siddique, Subi Suresh, Niranj, Shalin Zoya, Tini Tom, Baiju and Mythili are part of this upcoming movie’s supporting cast. Veteran Azhagappan is the cinematographer. MK Nassar and Maha Subair are jointly producing the movie under the banners of Lilypad Motion Pictures and Varnachithra Good Line Productions.
