Madhuri Braganza, who played one of the lead roles in the Malayalam film Joseph last year, is the female lead in the upcoming Mohanlal starrer Ittymaani: Made in China. There were various speculations on who would be the female lead in this comic caper and it is now finally revealed to be Madhuri. Veteran actor Raadhika Sarathkumar – who had once acted opposite Mohanlal in the 1985 film Koodum Thedi -- is also a part of the film.

It was recently reported that Mohanlal will be playing dual roles in Ittymaani and from what we gather, both Raadhika and Madhuri will be acting opposite each character. 

The film is directed by debut directors Jibi and Joju and bankrolled by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Cinemas. The title poster of the film was unveiled some time ago and it featured a laughing Buddha. Another poster with Mohanlal wearing the costumes of the traditional art form Margamkali has also been released. By now the shooting has been wrapped up and the film has gone into post-production stage.

Speaking about the film, one its directors, Joju, has said in an earlier interview to the Times of India, “It’s a total fun movie that would remind the audience of Lalettan’s yesteryear super hits such as Vellanakalude Naadu, Chithram and Kilukkam.” 

Having completed Ittymaani: Made in China, Mohanlal is now moving over to his next film Big Brother. The first schedule began in Ernakulam last month. Big Brother has  actors Arbaaz Khan, Anoop Menon, Sarjano Khalid, Satna Titus and others in the star cast. While Mohanlal, Anoop Menon and Sarjano Khalid play brothers in this flick, Arbaaz will be seen as a police officer. 

While Ittymaani: Made in China and Big Brother are expected to hit the silver screen this year, Mohanlal also has Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham waiting for release early next year. The shooting of this historical was wrapped up a couple of months ago and it is currently in post-production stage.
