Prithviraj’s debut directorial Lucifer starring Mohanlal to go floors by next May!
Prithviraj’s directorial debut Lucifer starring Mohanlal has now been in the talks for over an year now. That is the level of expectations about this film as two of the biggest stars in Malayalam cinema are teaming up for the first time. Murali Gopy, known for his powerful writings is scripting this film and it will be produced under the banner of Mohanlal’s Aashirvad Cinemas.
Since Mohanlal and Prithviraj have committed for a handful of other projects, there has been an uncertainty about when Lucifer will commence. Much to the delight of the fans, Murali Gopy informed that they are planning to go on floors by next May. He revealed this bit of information during an interaction with his Facebook followers.
Murali Gopy went on to add that Prithviraj is like his brother and hoped that their combination will bring out a quality output. Ever since the movie’s announcement, there have been several speculations about the genre and theme of this film.
In a recent interview to Film Companion, Prithviraj gave some hints about the project. He said that Lucifer, like all Murali Gopy films, will be an intense film that demands strong performances from the actors. Unlike Tiyaan, Lucifer is a film based completely on the ground reality in Kerala. Murali Gopy is known for his powerful scripts like Left Right Left, Ee Adutha Kaalathu and 1 by Two.
More details regarding the cast and crew of Lucifer are yet to be announced officially.
