Ever since Malayalam superstar Mohanlal announced that he will be playing the role of Bhima in the mega-budget movie Randamoozham, speculations were rife that Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have been roped in for the project. Ending the days of speculations, film director Sreekumar confirmed that the Bollywood Shahenshah will be playing an important role in the film. However, he also clarified that Aishwarya is not a part of the film.
“Yes, he is the Bhishma of Randamoozham. We aren’t taking any cinematic liberties with the character for the movie, he will be playing the role as it is in the book,” Sreekumar said according to reports. He also added that the filmmakers are in the process of finalising the remaining cast and crew.
Randamoozham will mark the third collaboration between Mohanlal and Big B. Previously, both titans of the Indian film industry have worked in 2010 film Kandahar, which was directed by Major Ravi.
Mohanlal’s Randamoozham, the onscreen adaptation of M T Vasudevan Nair’s acclaimed novel of the same name, is gearing up to be one of the most prestigious projects of the Malayalam. He said that the film will be split into two parts and it will cost about Rs 600 crore.
A latest report by Times Of India confirms that Amitabh Bachchan will be a part of this big project. Report also adds that director Sreekumar has confirmed the same stating that Big B will be doing the role of Bhishma in Randamoozham. He has also added that rest of the cast of the film hasn’t been finalised yet.
Well, it would definitely be exciting to see Mohanlal and Amitabh Bachchan sharing the screen space. Earlier, they had shared the screen space in the Bollywood film Aag and Malayalam film Kandahar.
Mohanlal is now awaiting the release of his war movie, 1971- Beyond Borders, and is shooting for his upcoming film Villain, which is directed by B Unnikrishnan. He also recently announced his next film, which has been titled Odiyan and is touted to be the most expensive project to be made in Malayalam so far. Randamoozham is more likely to happen next year.
