Mohanlal is gearing up for the shooting his next outing Memory Card, which is being directed by P Anil. It is going to be an out-and-out action thriller and the film is set to hit the floors soon. The makers have planned to release it during this Onam festival. If everything goes well, the movie will hit the screens on September 13, 2013.
Mohanlal has already rocked the Mallu viewers as an army officer in the movies like Douthyam, Pingami and the Keerthichakra series and proved that he is a perfect face for such roles in Mollywood. The superstar will once again appear in one such getup in Memory Card. He will play the role of an Ex-Military Intelligence Officer in this movie.
Gireesh, who has earlier worked in hit films like Aniyan Bava Chettan Bava and Meleparambil Aanveedu, has written the story for Memory Card, which is set in Hyderabad. It is said to be a racy action thriller that happens in a span of six days. Certain events bring together three people - Mohanlal's character, a police officer and another person in the city and the story moves forward in the backdrop of a high-profile investigation.
Besides Mohanlal, Memory Card, which is directed by P Anil, will have two other big names playing prominent roles. The production team has finalised the script and will start casting other artistes for the film. A source close to the production team claims that Prakash Raj has been approached to play a prominent character in the movie, but he is yet to give his consent for it.
