Mohanlal starrer upcoming multi-lingual action-thriller, directed by Priyadarshan has been reportedly postponed. The movie, which was about to start rolling from the first week of October, has been postponed to March 2016.
Reportedly, the team decided to postpone the film due to the bad weather condition in its major location, Azerbaijan. The temperature of the location is drastically decreased to minus degrees. It is impossible to shoot there with such a huge team.
The yet to be titled project is planned with a budget of 30 crores. It is expected to be the most expensive movie ever made in Malayalam. Mohanlal will play the role of a man, who travels to Azerbaijan with his wife.
Aparna Gopinath will essay the female lead opposite Mohanlal in the movie. Prathap Pothen and journalist-turned-actor Sasikumar play the other pivotal roles. The project will also star about 21 Russian actors.
The multi-lingual flick will be made in four more languages, which includes Chinese, Russian, Turkish, and Azeri languages. Ilayaraja composes the music. The movie is produced by Jaison Pulikkottil and Rouf Ji Mehdiyev.
It is an ambitious project for Priyadarshan, who tasted huge failures with his last two flicks; Mohanlal starrer Geethanjali and multi-starrer flick Aamayum Muyalum. The title of the new flick is expected to be announced soon.
