The official pooja of the Malayalam film Lucifer happened on July 16th as announced earlier. The event was attended by its actor-turned-director Prithviraj Sukumaran, his mother and actor Mallika Sukumaran, his wife and journalist Supriya Menon, producer Antony Perumbavoor, writer Murali Gopy among others. The filmâ€™s lead star Mohanlal could not make it to the pooja as he was busy with his prior acting commitments and will be joining the sets very soon, say sources.
Lucifer is one of the most anticipated and hyped films in Mollywood right now because it will mark Prithvirajâ€™s debut as director and he will be directing Mohanlal. The film has been written by actor-writer Murali Gopy and will be bankrolled by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Films.
The shooting of this film begins on July 18th, confirm sources.
The cast also includes Manju Warrier, Queen-fame Saniya Iyappan, Tovino Thomas, Indrajith Sukumaran among others. Recently, it was confirmed that Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi has been signed up to play an important role in the film and reports are that Vivek may be seen as Mohanlal's brother.
Lucifer will be shot extensively in Thiruvananthapuram, Mumbai and Kuttikkanam. The technical crew of the film includes Sujith Vasudevan for cinematography and Samjith for editing.
Besides directing Lucifer, Prithviraj also has a string of acting assignments needing his attention including Nine, a sci-fi thriller, Aadujeevitham, and Champ. Two of his films opposite actor Parvathy have just been released â€“ My Story and Koode. More releases are scheduled for later this year.
