Prithviraj also part of Mohanlal’s directorial debut Barroz?
Mohanlal’s much-hyped directorial debut ‘Barroz’ is set to begin by April. It is a highly ambitious film that is planned to be made entirely in 3D format. Shoot was supposed to begin last year but had to be postponed due to the pandemic. With the situation getting slightly better, the makers have decided to begin works.
‘Barroz’ scripted by Jijo Punnoose is a fantasy film set against the backdrop of the maritime history of Portugal, Spain, India and Africa. It is the story of Barroz, a mythical figure who was the gaurdian of Vasco da Gama’s valuable treasures for 400 years until his true heir comes back to protect it. Mohanlal plays the titular role and the supporting cast mostly comprises of foreign actors from US, Spain, Portugal and Ghana.
Interestingly, actor Prithviraj Sukumaran has hinted that he is also part of ‘Barroz’. In a recent Facebook post praising ‘Drishyam 2’, Prithviraj has written that he cannot wait to be directed by Mohanlal. Following this, there have been several reports suggesting that Prithviraj has been roped in to play an important role in the film. If it is true, it will be Mohanlal and Prithviraj’s second outing together after ‘Lucifer’.
