Antony Perumbavoor confirms the release dates of Odiyan and Lucifer
Following the disastrous floods that rocked the state of Kerala, the Malayalam film industry has also taken a severe blow. Many films that were supposed during the Onam season had to be postponed. This change in dates in turn affected the release plans of the earlier scheduled ones. The highly anticipated Mohanlal starrer Odiyan is one such movie whose release had to be pushed. Lately, there has been a lot of speculations about the new release date.
Putting an end to all loose talks, producer Antony Perumbavoor of Aashirvad Cinema has announced their plans. Odiyan will hit screens on December 14 as opposed to the earlier date of October 11.

Meanwhile, Lucifer shoot is underway in Trivandrum. The movie which marks the directorial debut of Prithviraj has Mohanlal playing the role of politician.
