‘Queen’ fame Saniya Iyappan as Mohanlal’s daughter in Lucifer?
Actor Prithviraj’s directorial debut Lucifer starring Mohanlal in the lead is all set to go on floors next month. Murali Gopy is scripting this movie and is funded by Antony under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. The makers are currently busy with the pre-production works which includes casting and location scouting.
According to latest reports, Saniya Iyappan of ‘Queen’ fame has been roped in to play an important role in Lucifer. As per these reports, she will be playing the role of Mohanlal’s daughter in the movie. Manju Warrier and Tovino Thomas are also said to be part of the cast. However, the makers are yet to officially announce the movie’s cast.
Lucifer is a hugely anticipated movie, naturally because of the big names involved in it. The fact that two of Malayalam cinema’s biggest stars – Mohanlal and Prithviraj – are teaming up for the first time itself triggers massive expectations for Lucifer. Reportedly, the movie will be a complete mass masala entertainer aimed at the fans.
Prithviraj had earlier hinted that Lucifer, like all Murali Gopy scripts, will be an intense film that demands strong performances from the actors. In the technical crew, Sujith Vaassudev will be cranking the camera and Deepak Dev will be handling the music department.
Prithviraj is currently shooting for his sci-fi movie 9, which also marks his maiden production venture. Mohanlal meanwhile is busy with stage shows in Australia after which he will be wrapping up his remaining portions for Ranjith’s movie. Reportedly, Lucifer’s shoot will be commencing by the first week of July in Kochi. Trivandrum and Mumbai are said to be the other major locations.
