Pranav Mohanlal is just a few films old if you count the couple of movies that he had acted as a child artiste. The youngster made his debut as hero with Aadhi earlier this year and has inked the deal to star in Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu, which is being directed by Arun Gopy of Ramaleela fame. Touted to be a romantic flick, the film has Pranav playing its lead star with a newbie paired opposite him to play his love interest. The supporting cast of the film includes Kalabhavan Shajon, Manoj K Jayan, Shaju Sreedhar, Dharmajan and Suresh Kumar.
While Pranav underwent training in Parkour, a form of acrobatics, for his debut film, he was in Bali for a month-long training course in surfing as his role in the upcoming film required. Acclaimed stunt choreographer Peter Hein is in charge of the stunts and with Pranav undergoing training in surfing, fans can expect some eye-catching scenes in Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu. A huge chunk of these surfing scenes will be shot in Cape Town in South Africa and the Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu team will be flying over next month. The shooting schedules of the film have been planned in various locations including Goa, Pala, Kanjirapally and Hyderabad.
Gopi Sunder will be scoring the music for this flick with Hari Narayanan penning the lyrics. Abinandan Ramanjunam of Amen and Mosayile Kuthira Meenukal fame will be cranking the camera and the National award winning editor Vivek Harshan will be handling the film’s editing. Sound designer Renganaath Ravee and art director Joseph Nellickal are also part of the technical team. Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu is being bankrolled by Tomichan Mulakupadam under his banner Mulakupadam Films.
Expectations are high on Irupathiyonnaam Noottaandu as it happens to be the second film for both director Arun Gopy and hero Pranav Mohanlal. With their respective first films turning out be blockbuster hits, film buffs just want to see how they fare with their next.
