Director Ranjith and Mohanlal share a good rapport having worked together in movies such as Ravanaprabhu, Aaram Thampuran, Devasuram, Spirit and Loham. And now, we hear from sources, that the two had met recently raising speculations that they may team up again. Reports are that Ranjith had narrated a script to the star and there is a possibility of them announcing a project together anytime soon. If things work out, Ranjith and Mohanlal may go ahead with the shooting later this year or early next.
Meanwhile, Ranjith is busy wielding the megaphone for Oru Bilathi Katha which has Mammootty playing a cameo role. The film has Maniyanpilla Raju's son Niranjan playing the lead role with Ramante Edenthottam fame heroine Anu Sithara as his lead pair. While Niranjan will be seen playing an illegal immigrant in the UK, Anu Sithara will be playing his love interest employed there.
Sethu has penned the script for this Ranjith directorial which has a bevy of actors in the cast including Jewel Mary, Kaniha, Dileesh Pothan, Kalabhavan Shajon, Suresh Krishna and director V M Vinu.
It may be noted here that Ranjith’s last release was Puthan Panam that had Mammootty playing the lead role. The film, which hit the silver screens last year, dealt with the socially relevant issue which is about demonetization and black money.
While Ranjith is busy directing Oru Bilathi Katha, Mohanlal is on the verge of completing the VA Shrikumar directorial Odiyan, touted to be a fantasy thriller. Apart from this, he had also committed to the Ajoy Varma directorial that has not been titled yet.
With reports about Ranjith and Mohanlal planning to team up for a movie, film buffs are eager to know about the genre and other details. However, to know more, we need to wait until they are done with their respective assignments.
