Having completed the film Ittymaani: Made in China, Mohanlal is moving on to his next project, Big Brother. The shooting of this film will go on the floors on July 11, confirmed its director Siddique. The first schedule will begin in Ernakulam and then move on to other places, we hear.

Big Brother has the Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan making his Malayalam debut. Others in the cast include Anoop Menon, Sarjano Khalid and Satna Titus. While Mohanlal, Anoop Menon and Sarjano Khalid play brothers in this flick, Arbaaz will be seen as a police officer. 

Mohanlal was recently in China to finish the final schedule of shooting for Ittymaani: Made in China. This film has now gone into the post-production stage. It is directed by debut filmmakers 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 also indicating that it will be a comic caper. 

Joju 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 superhits such as Vellanakalude Naadu, Chithram and Kilukkam.”

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 the post production stage.

The film, directed by Priyadarshan is based on the true life of Kunjali Marakkar IV. The title ‘Kunjali Marakkar’ was bestowed on naval chiefs during the 16th century and these naval chiefs fought valiantly against the Portuguese army. There were four Kunjali Marakkars during that era, of which the fourth is the most valiant and popular.
