If there is one such on-screen combination that we all are dying to see, then it has to be the combo of Mohanlal and Prithviraj, who have not shared the screen space, in films so far.
Yes, Prithviraj did announce Lucifer, but the film would only see Prithviraj directing Mohanlal. But now, there are rumours doing the rounds that both the actors would share the screen space in Priyadarshan's upcoming sports-based film.
Here, we list 5 such projects, which were planned with both the actors, but didn't materialize due to various reasons. Raed on..
A movie named Cousins was announced way back in the year 2009, and both the actors were supposed to share the screen space in this film. The film, which had Lal Jose as the captain of the ship, was dropped due to various reasons.
In the year 2013, Mohanlal himself announced through his Facebook page that both the actors would be teaming up for a movie directed by Ranjith. The film, incidentally was also planned as the comeback film of Manju Warrier but the project was dropped since the film had a theme similar to another movie, which released at that time.
Loham, released in the year 2015 did get all the required attention, during the pre-release stages. Interestingly, there were certain reports doing the rounds that Prithviraj would be doing a cameo role in the film and would be sharing the screen space with Mohanlal. But, once again, it went down as a mere rumour.
Priyadarshan's Political Thriller With Mohanlal And Prithviraj
Much before Oppam, Priyadarshan had planned to make a film with Mohanlal and Prithviraj in the lead roles. The director had stated that the film would be a political thriller, with both the actors in prominent roles. But, no further developments of the project were reported.
B Unnikrishnan's Upcoming Venture
There were reports doing the rounds that B Unnikrishnan is planning his next venture with Mohanlal. It was then that a news surfaced that Prithviraj would also be seen doing an important role in the movie. Later, the director himself came in and confirmed that Prithviraj is not a part of the project.
Lucifer, which marks the directorial debut of Prithviraj, is also expected to have another star in an important role. The project is in its initial stages and we don't know whether Prithviraj would also be appearing in a cameo of sorts in the movie.
Well, we are eagerly waiting for Lucifer. But, at the same time, we are waiting for a movie in which both the actors would rub their acting skills. We hope that the news regarding Prithviraj-Mohanlal-Priyadarshan movie turns out to be true. Let us wait and see.
