The shooting of the Mohanlal starrer Villain, which is currently on at Ernakulam in Kerala, is progressing at a rapid pace. Mohanlal had joined the sets of the film last month and the team is working hard to complete the shooting within the deadline set. Meanwhile, reports have surfaced that Tollywood heroine Raashi Khanna will be seen playing the villain. According to sources, director B Unnikrishnan has roped in the actor to play a corrupt cop.
Interestingly, Villain has a huge star cast including Manju Warrier, Hansika, Vishal, Srikanth, Renji Panicker, Aju Varghese, Chemban Vinod Jose, Anand, Idavela Babu, Kottayam Nazeer, Balaji Sarma and Antony Perumbavoor.
Kollywood hero Vishal will be foraying into the Malayalam film industry with this flick and this gave rise to a rumour that he may be the villain. But with news leaking out that Rashi Khanna plays a corrupt cop, it looks like the director has an interesting twist planned for the audiences.
Produced by Rockline Venkatesh under the banner Rockline Entertainments Pvt Ltd., Villain will be the first Indian film to be shot and released in the 8K resolution format. It is also the most expensive Malayalam film to be made in the recent times.
While the songs for the album will be scored by 4 Musics, Manoj Pramahamsa is cranking the camera and Shameer Mohammed has been signed up to take charge at the editing table. Mohanlal plays an ex-cop in the film and will be seen in two different avatars. An action entertainer, the film has three stunt directors - Peter Hein, Stunt Silva and Ravi Varma.
