Mohanlal's upcoming movie "Puli Murugan" has been making news for quite some time. Latest rumour regarding the movie is that Tamil star Prabhu will also join Mohanlal in the movie directed by Vyshakh.
Reports are that director Vyshakh wants the best for "Puli Murugan" and therefore has decided to rope in the best of South Indian actors to portray roles in the upcoming flick.
If this project materialises, the audience will see these two masters, Mohanlal and Prabhu sharing screen space after 1996 classic movie "Kalapani" directed Priyadarshan. The success of "Kalapani" would itself talk about the challenge which Vyshakh has taken by casting these two artistes.
Meanwhile, Prabhu's last Malayalam movie was "Dracula 2012" directed by Vinayan which failed to make a mark on the box office.
The makers of "Puli Murugan" are currently busy with location hunting and the shooting of the movie is currently scheduled to start by May. The movie, which is touted as action masala flick, will see Mohanlal in a completely new look.
Meanwhile, Mohanlal is currently shooting for Ranjith's movie "Loham" along with Andrea Jeremiah. His recent release "Ennum Eppozhum", directed by Sathyan Anthikkad, is running successfully in theatres. The actor is also awaiting the release of the movie "Lailaa O Lailaa" directed by Joshiy which will also star Amala Paul.
The script of the upcoming Vyshakh movie is written by Udaya Krishna of Udaya Krishna - Sibi K Thomas team. This team is known in the industry for coming out with mass films with comic elements.
Vysakh had made his directorial debut with hit movie "Pokkiri Raja" which starred Mammootty and Prithviraj in lead roles. He later went on to do fairly successful films like "Seniors", "Mallu Singh", "Sound Thoma" and "Visudhan". However, his last movie "Cousins" starring Kunchacko Boban, Indrajith, Suraj Venjarammodu and Joju George bombed at the box office.
"Puli Murugan" will be bankrolled by Tomichan Mulakupaadam, under the banner of Mulakupaadam Films.
