The official teaser of Mohanlal's next big outing Ittymaani Made in China released on Sunday. The 55-second video, which was released by actor Mohanlal on Facebook, promises a few laughs and shows KPAC Lalitha and Mohanlal speaking in Mandarin. Actor Siddique also makes an appearance as a priest.
The film, which looks like a comic caper from its posters and teaser, was shot in parts in China. The film's cast and crew had shot the final schedule in China in July. Speaking about the film to Times of India, director Joju had said â€œChina has significance in a story that is set in Kunnamkulam, where you get all types of duplicate goods."
The director had also described the film as a total fun ride which would remind audiences of Mohanlal's yesteryear hits Vellanakalude Naadu, Chithram and Kilukkam.
A poster of the film which had released earlier showed Mohanlal in a Margam Kali costume dancing in front of a church. The title poster of the film featured a laughing Buddha, suggesting that the film is indeed a comic caper.
According to reports, Mohanlal will be speaking in the Thrissur dialect of Malayalam in this film, which is directed by debutants Jibi and Joju. Bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor under Aashirvad Cinemas, the film will be Mohanlal's next big project following Lucifer. The movie, which also stars Honey Rose, Vinu Mohan, Radikaa Sarathkumar, Aristo Suresh and Viviya will release for this Onam. The film's cinematography is handled by Shaji.
Mohanlal also has another big project Big Brother directed by Siddique in the pipeline. The film has Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan, Anoop Menon, Sarjano Khalid, Satna Titus and others in the cast. While Mohanlal, Anoop Menon and Sarjano Khalid play brothers in this flick, Arbaaz will be seen as a police officer.
