Nair San, which was announced in 2009, was delayed
indefinitely after the production house decided to back out from
the project. It was reported that the banner was doubtful about
Mohanlal's hold in the international market.
But now, the makers decide to revive the project, considering
the massive success of Mohanlal's recent movie
Pulimurugan. The team feels that the actor can now easily
make an impression in the international market.
Mohanlal is now undoubtedly one of the most bankable actors of
the Indian film industry. If Nair San becomes true, the
actor will succeed in establishing himself as one of the leading
Indian stars in the global level.
The movie, which is set in the pre-independence era, will have Mohanlal in the role of an Indian soldier named Ayyappan Nair. Jackie Chan, on the other hand, will appear as a Japanese martial arts expert.
