The Complete Actor Mohanlal is one of the busiest actors in South Indian cinema and currently has a slew of films under his belt. Lalettan will be seen playing the mincing terrible in ‘Odiyan’ and also has the big budget Randamoozham up his sleeve for which he will start shooting from December 2018. And now, Mohanlal has also begun work on another film which will be directed by Ajoy Varma. The film has a crew who have worked mostly in Bollywood which includes makeup artists who worked on 3 Idiots and Dhoom. The film is yet to be titled by the makers and was recently launched in Mumbai with the cast and crew. Mohanlal shared a picture on his social networking age and wrote – “Dear friends, happy and excited to share the news about my new project which begins today in Mumbai. The movie yet to be titled is directed by Ajoy Varma and produced by Santhosh T Kuruvilla under the banner of Moonshot Entertainment. Script is by Saju Thomas and Cinematography by Santhosh Thundiyil. As an actor I found this project quite interesting and I’m thrilled to be part of this.” With another flick in his line-up, Mohanlal will certainly have an exciting 2018. The yet to be titled will have actress Meena playing the leading lady opposite Mohanlal in this film which is expected to be released by end of this year.
On other hand in Odiyan, Mohanlal plays the fiercely ‘Odiyan’ in the film which is based on a tribal member called Manickan who was the last surviving member of the tribal community Odiyan in Kerala. Mohanlal seems to have put in a lot of effort to get into that shape for his role in Odiyan and the results are visible too which one can see in the teaser. Odiyan is being directed by VA Shri Kumar and produced by Antony Perumbavoor who is a long time associate and close friend of Mohanlal. Odiyan is being made on a huge budget and is said to be a fantasy thriller. In such a lean and never-seen-before look, Mohanlal is set to enthrall his fans with Odiyan. Mohanlal’s makeover in Odiyan has sent his fans into a frenzy and the response to his new lean look is quite overwhelming. Odiyan was a tribal community in the Palakkad-Malabar region and is known for scaring people in order to make a living.
