Prithviraj, the young talent of Mollywood is all set to make his debut as a director with Lucifer, which will have superstar Mohanlal in the lead role. Prithviraj and writer-actor Murali Gopy have co-authored the script. The film is one among them and the movie marks the first association of Prithviraj and Mohanlal.
Lucifer will be a film based completely on the ground reality in Kerala.
The makers released a one-minute long video unveiling the title font on Tuesday morning in the social media.
Lucifer was officially announced in 2016 but due to the stars’ prior commitments, it was informed that the project would go on the floors only by 2018. Since Mohanlal and Prithviraj have committed to a handful of other projects, there was uncertainty about when the project will go on the floors.
Recently, Mohanlal took time off his busy schedule on the sets of Odiyan to listen to the final script of the upcoming film And as per latest reports, the movie will start from July this year. Mohanlal will be flying to England where he will be shooting for Ranjith’s Bilathikadha for which he has allotted around 45 days and after that, he will be joining the sets of Lucifer.
Meanwhile, Prithiviraj will be wrapping up his maiden production venture titled 9, in which he is playing the lead. The film is written and directed by Jenuse Mohamed. Nine is bankrolled by Supriya Menon and SPE Films, jointly with Sony Pictures.
Rumours have been doing the rounds that Manju Warrier has been roped in as the leading lady in this much-awaited movie. But the makers are yet to give an official word regarding this. If it turns out to be true, this will be Manju’s seventh outing with the superstar and fourth after she made her comeback in 2014 with How Old Are You.
There are also reports that Shane Nigam has bagged a crucial role in the film. Lucifer is bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor’s Aashirvad Cinemas.
