Mohanlal’s upcoming film, which will be directed by Ajoy Varma, will have its crew entirely from Bollywood. The director confirmed that his crew would comprise cameraman Santhosh Thundiyil, who was the cinematographer for Rustom and Krrish, stunt master Sunil Rodriguez of Golmaal Again and Singham Returns fame and Serena Tixeria, who worked as the make up artiste in 3 Idiots and Dhoom. The film is written by Saju Thomas. The director is yet to reveal the rest of the crew members.

While Mohanlal plays the main lead in the movie, it has Parvathy Nair playing the female lead. In an interview to ToI, she said, "As I will be acting alongside him, there will be this constant fear of how I will match up to his performance. That's something I am really nervous about.” The star cast also includes Suraj Venjaramoodu, Dileesh Pothan and Sai Kumar.

Touted to be a travel movie, the film has not been titled yet. The shooting of this untitled film is expected to go on the floors soon after Mohanlal is done with Odiyan, which is said to be in the final stages of shooting.

Ajoy Varma is an acclaimed film editor having worked in films such as Jai Santoshi Maa, Shikar, Nothing But Life and Beyond the Soul. He then ventured into direction and has helmed the movie SRK, which starred Manoj Joshi, Vinay Pathak, and Dilip Prabhavalkar.

Meanwhile, Mohanlal is busy with Odiyan, a fantasy thriller, that is being directed by VA Shrikumar Menon. The star cast of this film includes Manju Warrier as the female lead with Prakash Raj, Siddique, Innocent, Narain, Kailash, Sana Althaf, Appani Sarath and Nandhu in supporting roles. M Jayachandran and CS Sam are composing tunes for the songs and BGM respectively while Shaji Kumar is cranking the camera and John Kutty is the editor. Odiyan, made on a high budget, is bankrolled by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Cinemas.
