Mohanlal, the complete actor of M'town, is reportedly all set to play the lead role in the upcoming Shaji Kailas-Renji Panicker movie. However, the reports are yet to be officially confirmed.
According to the rumour mills, Mohanlal has committed Shaji Kailas's upcoming directorial venture, which is scripted by Renji Panicker. The movie is produced by Antony Perumbavoor's Aashirvad Cinemas.
Sources suggest that Renji Panicker, who is busy with his acting career, is planning to take a break to start the scripting of the movie. The project is expected to go on floors by mid-2016.
Shaji Kailas has earlier directed Mohanlal in the iconic movies Aaram Thamburan and Narasimham. The duo last joined the hands for the crime thriller Red Chillies, which was an average grosser.
Renji Panicker, on the other hand, has scripted Mohanlal's Joshiy-directed movie Praja. As an actor, he has shared the screen with Lal in Loham and Ennum Eppozhum.
Shaji Kailas is going through a rough phase in his career with back-to-back flops Simhasanam, Madirasi and Ginger. He is currently working on Suresh Gopi starrer The State.
Earlier, it was reported that Mohanlal and Mammootty are sharing the screen for Shaji Kailas's upcoming movie. But later, the project shelved due to the busy schedule of the actors.
