Actor Nadia Moidu will team up with The Complete Actor Mohanlal after 34 years in Ajoy Varma’s action-thriller which is currently being shot in Mumbai. Nadia acted alongside Mohanlal many years ago in Nokketha Doorathu Kannum and interestingly that was her debut film in Malayalam. This Ajoy Varma directorial is yet to be titled and will have Suraj Venjaramoodu and Parvatii Nair in important roles. Nadia will be seen playing Mohanlal’s wife in the film, which is yet to be titled, which will be majorly shot in and around Mumbai. More details about the rest of the cast are yet to be revealed by the makers and is expected to come out in the near future. The film has a crew who have worked mostly in Bollywood which includes makeup artists who worked on 3 Idiots and Dhoom. It was being reported that actor Meena will be seen playing Mohanlal’s wife in the film, but the latest developments seem to have a different picture.
Nadia has been lately doing a lot of Telugu films which includes Prabhas’ Mirchi, Pawan Kalyan’s Attarintiki Daaredhi and Venkatesh’s Drushyam. After having made a comeback, Nadia has been supporting roles in Tamil and Telugu films, and characters which have substantial contribution to the story in the films. And with she teaming up with Mohanlal again after more than three decades, her career is surely heading in the right direction.
On other hand, Mohanlal, besides this untitled film, has Odiyan which is based on a tribal member called Manickan who was the last surviving member of the tribal community Odiyan in Kerala. Mohanlal has 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.
