Mohanlal and Prithviraj will play the central characters in director Priyadarshan's upcoming political thriller. The director himself revealed the news while speaking to the media. The movie will be penned by Priyadarshan himself.
The director, who has earlier directed some outstanding political thrillers like Adwaitham and Aryan, which had Mohanlal in the lead role, considers the upcoming project as a real challenge.
Prithviraj, the young actor who has already worked with almost all veteran directors of the film industry, is joining hands with Priyadarshan, for the first time in his career. Expectations are riding high on the project as it will mark the first collaboration of Mohanlal and Prithviraj.
Earlier, director Lal Jose had planned a project with Mohanlal and Prithviraj in the lead roles, which was titled as Cousins. But later, the project shelved due to unknown reasons and director Vysakh made a movie in the same title.
The last two releases of Priyadarshan, Geethanjali which was an unofficial remake of Thai movie Alone and Aamayum Muyalum, which was adapted from his own Bollywood production Malamaal Weekly, were huge critical and commercial failures.
The director who is infamous for adapting themes from other language movies, is all set to bounce back from the low phase of his career, with the upcoming Mohanlal-Prithviraj starrer.
