Debut director Arun Gopy is basking in glory over the success of Ramaleela which went on to become a big box office success despite all the problems it had to undergo during its release.
With this Dileep starrer finally out at the theatres and termed as a box office success, there is widespread speculation about director Arun Gopyâ€™s next. And this is fueled by his recent Facebook post:
While the director did not mention the name of the hero he is to work with, there are strong rumours that it could be Mohanlal, going by what the director had posted. Interestingly, Tomichan Mulakuppadam had produced Mohanlalâ€™s Pulimurugan which turned out to be a big hit and then went on to bankroll Arun Gopyâ€™s Ramaleela as well.
Meanwhile, Mohanlal is busy with Odiyan which is being directed by VA Shreekumar Menon. The actor plays the title role in this flick which will have him in different avatars as he will be playing different phases of his life.
The third schedule of Odiyan has commenced already and the star will be joining the sets on December 5. Mohanlal has done a lot of homework to get into the skin of the character he is playing in the movie and has reportedly shed nearly 15 kilos of weight to play the younger version in Odiyan. It may be noted here that Mohanlal will be also be seen in Mahabharata, touted to be made on a budget of Rs. 1000 crores. This film is slated to go on to the floors later next year.
