Writer-director Ranjith and Mohanlal will team up in a new film, which has been titled Loham.
Andrea Jeremiah is the heroine. The shooting of the film will take place at Kozhikode, Kochi and Dubai.
Ranjith had originally announced Manju Warrier’s comeback film, with Mohanlal as the hero. However that project never happened. The director came out with the Dulquer Salmaan starrer Njan that failed to make much impression.
Another project with Jayaram in the lead was also announced and that has now been postponed as well. There are rumours doing the rounds that Mohanlal is playing a “larger than life” hero in the mould of some of Ranjith’s earlier films but it has no confirmation as yet.
If the industry updates are to be believed, Mohanlal is all set to team up with director Ranjith once again. The film will start rolling soon.
And then, speculations are rife that Manju Warrier will play the heroine in the film. Mohanlal and Manju are currently playing the lead in Sathyan Anthikkad’s new film, the shooting of which is now nearing completion.
In fact it was producer Antony Perumbavoor who had met Manju Warrier first, when she announced her plans to return to acting. A project was announced soon after, which had Mohanlal and Manju in the lead. But it didn’t happen and Manju then acted in Rosshan Andrrews’ How Old Are You.
Though the reports have not been confirmed as yet, sources suggest that the talks have started again. At least for now, it is almost certain that Mohanlal and Ranjith are teaming up once again, in the film that is being produced by Antony Perumbavoor’s Ashirvad Cinemas.
