The shooting of director Ranjithâ€™s upcoming film Drama, with Mohanlal in the lead, has finished in London.
From what Mohanlal said in a recent interview, Drama is not an ordinary film. It is something that has never been attempted in the Malayalam film industry so far and therefore would be a treat for his fans and film buffs. Drama, a family entertainer, would be laced adequately with humor and sentiments, we hear.
The film features Kaniha, Asha Sharath Arundhathi Nag, Siddique, Subi Suresh, Niranj, Shalin Zoya, Tini Tom, Baiju and Mythili in the supporting cast. Reports are that the cast also has three directors - Dileesh Pothen, Shyama Prasad and Johny Antony â€“ playing pivotal roles.
It may be mentioned here that Ranjithâ€™s initial plan was to make a love drama Bilathikatha with Niranj and Anu Sithara playing the lead pair and Mohanlal playing a small role in it. However, this project has been shelved after Mohanlal gave the go ahead for Drama. Ranjith and Mohanlal have worked together in films such as Ravanaprabhu, Chandrolsavam, Rock Nâ€™ Roll, Spirit and Loham.
Vinu Thomas is scoring the music and Azhagappan is the cinematographer for the film. Drama is jointly produced by MK Nassar and Maha Subair under their banners Lilypad Motion Pictures and Varnachithra Good Line Productions respectively.
Mohanlal is busy with a number of film releases scheduled for this year. His Neerali is slated for release on July 12. The film has been directed by Ajoy Varma with Nadiya playing Mohanlalâ€™s lead pair. The starâ€™s Odiyan is also slotted for release this year.
