Mohanlalâ€™s upcoming film Ittymaani Made In China will have the star speaking the Thrissur dialect in it; something that he had not done for nearly three decades now. He had of course made a memorable performance as a Thrissur man in Padmarajanâ€™s much-popular movie Thoovanathumbikal.
According to reports, the story of Ittymaani Made In China is set in Kunnamkulam, a place that is famous for replicas. While a major portion of the film will be shot in Kunnumkulam, there are also plans to shoot some parts in China. It is expected to be an out-and-out fun entertainer. We hear that the shooting would commence in April next year as Mohanlal would be done with the Prithviraj directorial Lucifer by then.
Ittymaani Made In China will be bankrolled by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Cinemas and directed by Jibi Joju. The title poster features a laughing Buddha also indicating that it will be comic caper.
Meanwhile, Mohanlal also has Odiyan, directed by VA Shrikumar Menon, lined up for release on December 14th and the post production of this fantasy entertainer is happening in full swing. His film Lucifer is slated for release on April 9th next year as well.
Further, he is gearing up to join the sets of the historical Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham, which will be directed by Priyadarshan later this year. To be made on a large canvas, the film will have actors such as Mukesh, Prabhu, Keerthy Suresh and others. Besides these projects being in the pipeline, Mohanlal also has the film Big Brother with director Siddique in his kitty apart from the high budget Randamoozham to be directed by VA Shrikumar Menon.
He was last seen in Ranjithâ€™s Drama as an NRI man in London, working in a funeral company and having a tiff with his wife.
