Malayalam star Prithviraj will fly to the United States of America next week as the shooting of his upcoming film Ranam aka Detroit Crossing is due to commence there.
The director has ear-marked locations in the US where the film will be shot and the filming process will begin from next week onwards, we hear from credible sources.
Starring Prithviraj in the lead role, Ranam has Mamta Mohandas playing his female lead. The film will mark Nirmal Sachdevâ€™s directorial debut in the Malayalam film industry. Reports say that the team has planned a 50-day shooting schedule in the country and will return to India in October.
Speaking about her role in the film, Mamta Mohandas had said earlier, â€śEveryone and everything in the film is looking for second chances, including Detroit city. My character is a dancer but dance is a means for her to escape and a passion, and it's not what adds to the story. She communicates unspoken stuff through dance.â€ť
With a slew of films in his kitty, Prithviraj is expecting the release of Adam Joan on August 31. He also has films such as My Story, Vimaanam, Aadu Jeevitham and Veluthampi Dalava. On his return to India after he is done with Ranam, Prithviraj will begin shooting for the Anjali Menon directorial.
