After gracing Mollywood industry with his acting prowess for close to three decades, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has expressed his desire to retire from cinema after completing a humongous project.
Last year, Mohanlal gave back-to-back blockbusters with Oppam and Pulimurugan, which is the first Malayalam film to gross Rs 150 crore worldwide.
While Mohanlal’s next with director B Unnikrishnan will go on the floors in the coming days, an interesting news about the star has cropped up.
According to a report in Manorama, the actor said he would be leaving mainstream cinema “in a few years” after wrapping up an ambitious project Randamoozhan (second turn) to be made on a whopping budget of Rs 600 crore. The project is likely to hit the floors in next year. Randamoozhan will be based on a novel with the same name by M T Vasudevan Nair. It is about the epic Mahabharata from Bhima’s perspective.
In the three decades of his career, the actor worked in over 300 Malayalam projects and a few films in Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. The 56-year-old Padma Shri awardee has also bagged four National Film Awards and multiple state and international awards for his contribution to cinema.
