Mohanlal, Shaji Kailas to reunite after 12 years
Mohanlal recently completed the shoot for Bro Daddy and is now in the middle of filming Jeethu Joseph's The 12th Man
After a gap of 12 years, Mohanlal and Shaji Kailas are reuniting again for a feature that will go on floors next month. The as-yet-untitled project has its script by Rajesh Jayaraman (Praana, Bhagyadevatha), with backing from Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas.
Announcing the news on his social media handles, Mohanlal wrote, "The wait is finally over! It's with great excitement and happiness that I announce my next project with Shaji Kailas which starts rolling in Oct 2021. Am sure it's going to be worth the wait."
Shaji Kailas wrote, "It has been a long 12 years, and finally the wait is over. You might not know how much I am excited to join my dear Mohanlal for a new project. The movie will start rolling soon."
The details of the rest of the crew should be out soon.
Mohanlal and Shaji Kailas last worked together on the 2009 film Red Chillies. They began their first collaboration with the blockbuster Aaraam Thampuran in 1997, followed up by an even bigger hit, Narasimham, in 2000. The latter launched the production career of Antony Perumbavoor.
Meanwhile, Shaji Kailas has put the filming of Prithviraj-starrer Kaduva on hold due to the pandemic-imposed constraints. The project is expected to resume after Prithviraj completes the Alphonse Puthren film Gold.
