The latest buzz in the industry is that two living legends of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan and Mohanlal, will be acting together in a big-budget film.
According to reports, the project has been titled Odiyan and it will be directed by the noted ad filmmaker Sreekumar. Besides the two big stars of Bollywood and Mollywood, Prakash Raj and Manju Warrier will also be seen in important roles.
It must be noted that Mohanlal and Amitabh Bachchan have previously worked together in films like Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag and Kandahar. If things materialise, Odiyan will be one of the highly expected films of all time.
It has been reported that Odiyan will be a 3D Malayalam movie. Though the news is abuzz, the director is not so keen in revealing much about it. When contacted, Sreekumar, who was miffed about rumours told us, “The film is in a very premature stage. It is just a thought I had and I have no clue who is spreading all these. If anything progresses, I would definitely tell you.”
Meanwhile, Mohanlal is currently busy with his upcoming war movie 1971: Beyond Borders. He will soon start shooting for his next film with director Unnikrishnan B.
The actor’s latest outing Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol, a slice-of-life film that follows the indiscretions of a middle-aged government official and his efforts to find happiness in life, was given a rousing reception by fans. It was declared a blockbuster after it raked in about Rs 20 crore at the Kerala box office in its opening week. It is expected to break the record of Mohanlal’s Oppam, which ran for over 100 days at the theaters and had a worldwide collection of more than Rs 60 crore.
Munthirivallikal Thalirkkumbol is the third box office blockbuster in a row for Mohanlal after Oppam and Pulimurugan.
