Shoot wrapped up for Pranav Mohanlal’s Aadhi!
After shooting continuously for over three months in Kochi, Bangalore and Hyderabad, Pranav Mohanlal’s Aadhi has finally been wrapped up. Director Jeethu Joseph took to his official Facebook handle to inform about the pack up of Aadhi. Malayalis across the world are eagerly looking forward to this movie as Pranav Mohanlal after years of speculation is finally making his debut as a lead actor.
Aadhi is an action thriller in which Pranav plays the role of an aspiring musician. His character is a typical urban youth who is into music and dance. The recently released first look poster had Pranav performing a Parkour like stunt on a high rise building. Prior to the movie’s shoot, Pranav underwent Parkour training in Bangkok for a few months as his character in the movie demanded such trait.
Parkour is a form of acrobatic physical training that involves crossing obstacles by running, climbing, jumping, rolling and swinging. As we had reported earlier, Parkour scenes will be one of the major highlights in Aadhi. Some highly stylish action sequences in the movie have been choreographed by foreign stunt masters.
Interestingly, Pranav has also penned and lent his voice for an English retro track in the movie. Anil Johnson, a regular in Jeethu Joseph films, is handling the music department in Aadhi as well. He will be recording Pranav’s song once the youngster returns back from Hyderabad.
Aadhi has a strong supporting cast which includes a good mix of veteran and young actors. Noted Telugu actor Jagpathi Babu, who was last seen in Malayalam in Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan, will be seen as the baddie in Aadhi. Anusree, Alamara fame Aditi Ravi, Lena, Siju Wilson, Krishna Shankar, Sharafudheen, Tony Luke, Siddique and Nobi are also part of the movie.
Satheesh Kurup is cranking the camera and Ayoob Khan is in charge of the edits. Antony Perumbavoor is producing this movie under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. The movie is said to be eyeing a Republic Day release but an official announcement has not yet been made.
