According to a leading daily, Mollywood megastar Mohanlal will team up with Bollywood filmmaker Ajoy Varma for a Malayalam film after wrapping up his eagerly-awaited ‘Odiyan’. The two are coming together for a thriller-drama that is going to be shot in Mumbai, Pune and Sri Lanka. Confirming the same, Ajoy said that the film will go on the floors in December.
“Once we finished scripting the movie, we met Lal sir and he liked the script. We are now finalising a few more details before we can reveal more about his character or the rest of the cast. It’s a drama-thriller. Mumbai, Pune and Sri Lanka will be the locations for the movie which will be shot this December and January,” he added.
Well, this is some good news and is bound to create a buzz amongst Lalettan’s fans. In case you did not know, Ajoy Varma is perhaps best known for directing the Hindi movie ‘SRK’. He has also worked as an editor on films such as ‘Shikhar’ and ‘Beyond The Soul’.
