Mohanlal who was last seen in Prithviraj's directorial debut Lucifer is all set to don the director's cap himself. After working in the film industry for over four decades, the versatile actor is all geared up to step behind the camera, for what is probably touted to be one of Malayalam film industry's most ambitious projects.
Mohanlal will not only be directing the magnum opus Barroz, he will also be starring in it. The film will be made in 3D and is based on novel written by Jijo Punnose. Jijo has completed the screenplay for the film and shooting is expected to start in October.
Barroz is a fictional character who is the guardian of Vasco Da Gama's treasures. He is said to be waiting for the rightful heir of the traveller, so that he can hand over the treasure to him. Besides Barroz, Mohanlal has two more movies going on floors. These were launched a few days back. The actor will collaborate director Siddique for Big Brother and with debutant directors Jibi and Joju for Ittymaani: Made in China. Check out the launch pics of these two movies:
Mohanlal also has Priyadarshan's historical epic Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham which boasts of a stellar cast which includes Suniel Shetty, Arjun and Sudeep. While we get you more updates on Barroz and Mohanlal's other projects, you stay tuned for the latest from Malayalam cinema.
