Mohanlal, the superstar was rumoured to be teaming up with filmmaker Shafi, for a fun entertainer. The reports, which suggested that Mohanlal and Shafi are joining hands for a project scripted by Vishnu Unnikrishnan-Bibin George duo, have been doing rounds from the past few days. However, the director slammed the rumours in a recent interview.
While talking to a popular daily, Shafi confirmed that both he and Vishnu Unnikrishnan-Bibin George duo have a subject ready for Mohanlal. But the reports, which suggest that the project will start rolling soon, is baseless. Even though the story is ready, the director and scriptwriters have not had a discussion with the complete actor yet.
The filmmaker revealed that they are not in talks with the complete actor for the project, and the rumours are untrue. Shafi also added that these rumours are spread by a few people, who don't want the collaboration to happen. Shafi is planning to announce the project officially, once they have a discussion with Mohanlal on the project.
Coming to Shafi's career, the director's last outing was the comedy film Children's Park, which features Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Sharafudheen, and Dhruvan in the lead roles. However, the movie couldn't recreate the magic of the director's earlier films, and emerged as a box office dud. The filmmaker has not announced any projects after Children's Park.
Mohanlal, on the other hand, is totally busy with some highly promising projects in the pipeline. The actor will be next seen in the Priyadarshan-directed historical drama Marakkar Arabikadalinte Simham. He will soon start shooting for the sequel of the 2013-released blockbuster Drishyam, which has been titled as Drishyam 2. Mohanlal is also expected to resume the shooting of his delayed project Ram, once the world comes back to normalcy.
