Mollywood superstar Mohanlal’s son Pranav Mohanlal is all set to make his debut as hero with Aadhi and the film’s progress is happening at a brisk pace with the shooting currently going on in Hyderabad.
According to latest reports, Jagapathi Babu has been roped in to play the antagonist in this film and he will be seen as a deadly villain. Interestingly, Jagapathi Babu played the menacing villain in Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan which won him a lot of accolades for his performance.
Sources say that Jagapathi Babu has a meaty role to play in the film and his performance will be the talk of the tinsel town once the film releases.
Aadhi, touted to be a thriller written and directed by acclaimed director Jeethu Joseph, is gearing up for release next year. The film has Pranav playing the title role while the star cast also includes Siddique, Sharafudheen, Siju Wilson, Aditi Ravi, Anusree, Lena and Tony Luke.
Anil Johnson is composing the tunes for this film with Satheesh Kurup working with the camera as the cinematographer and Ayoob Khan editing it.
Aadhi is being bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Cinemas and will be distributed by Maxlab Cinemas and Entertainments.
It may be mentioned here that Pranav had worked as an assistant to Jeethu Joseph in Papanasam, the Tamil version of the Malayalam blockbuster Drishyam. The film starred Kamal Haasan and Gauthami as the lead pair.
Pranav made his acting debut as child artiste with Onnaman in 2002 and went on to win the Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artist for his performance as child artiste in Punarjani the same year. He has worked as assistant director in Papanasam and Life of Josutty before returning to don the greasepaint to play the lead role in Aadhi.
