Mohanlal is one of the busiest stars in the tinsel town. With Odiyan and Neerali shaping up swiftly, we hear that the star getting ready for another project. He will be joining the sets of the Bhadran directorial, which is a road movie. Based on a real life incident, the film will have all the commercial elements that are sure to have the audiences glued to their seats, say sources close to the film unit.

As reported in the Times of India, director Bhadran had said, “He is well versed in Malayalam, Hindi, English and many other languages. He travels a lot and based on the place he is in at a given time, he uses his skills to blend in accordingly. It's a powerful character and like Aadu Thoma in Spadikam, he has a gentle heart and at the same time is a rough and tough guy.” The film, which has not been titled yet, will go on to the floors in April this year. By then, Mohanlal would’ve completed both the current projects on hands – Odiyan and Neerali.

Mohanlal and Bhadran’s association in the filmdom started in the year 1982 with their first film together being Ente Mohangal Poovaninju. A couple of years later, he directed the two superstars of the Malayalam film industry – Mammootty and Mohanlal – in Changatham and had worked with both these stars in several films.

Mohanlal is currently busy shooting for the Ajoy Varma directorial Neerali in Mumbai. After completing a schedule of this film, he will be moving over to the Odiyan team.
