Mohanlal will join the sets of his upcoming film Ittimani: Made in China soon. The star, basking in glory over the grand success of his latest film Lucifer, returned from a tour to the US recently and is now all geared up to work again.
Mohanlal has earlier revealed that he will be teaming up with debut directors Jibi and Joju for Ittimani: Made in China and he is expected to join the sets on April 25 in Thrissur. He is playing a Thrissur native in the film. Reports are that some important portions of this film will be canned in Singapore after this schedule is over.
The venture will be bankrolled by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Cinemas. The title poster featuring a laughing Buddha was released some time ago, indicating that the film will be comic caper.
Veteran actor Radhikaa Sarathkumar will also be seen in a pivotal role in Ittimani: Made in China. “It’s a total fun movie that would remind the audience of Lalettan’s yesteryear superhits such as Vellanakalude Naadu, Chithram and Kilukkam,” said Joju, one of the directors of the film, to the Times of India.
Only a day ago, Mohanlal, who has been acting for four decades now, announced his decision to turn to film direction. He will be making his directorial debut with Barroz, a 3-D film set in a Portuguese backdrop, about a man who stands guard to a 400-year-old treasure of Vasco da Gama, the explorer. The news was put on his blog ‘The Complete Actor’ that was released on Easter.
Meanwhile Mohanlal has completed shooting for the magnum opus Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, directed by Priyadarshan. The star will also been seen in Big Brother, directed by Siddique.
In Kollywood, Mohanlal awaits the release of Suriya starrer KV Anand's Kaappaan.
