Dual roles did not contribute to Mohanlal's success. This is
evident from his movies like Mayamayooram and
Udayon. Both were not commercially hits. The exception in
this list is his hit movie Ravanaprabhu. Still, he has
accepted a dual role for his forthcoming movie
Photographer is directed by Ranjan Pramod, his first
movie in Malayalam. In Photographer, Mohanlal is playing a
role of a photographer (what else?) of wildlife; the other role is
that of a farmer.
The crew is zipped from revealing the character of the farmer.
This is been done to avoid the jinxed luck of his earlier dual
roles. The director is under a gag order not even to publish news
or expose the character of the farmer. Anyway, best wishes for the
success of the movie.
