The actor will be playing the lead in ad filmmaker-turned director, Revathy S Varma’s Malayalam debut
The filmmaker, who began her filmy career in the Tamil industry has titled her Malayalam film as Mad Dad and has Mohanlal playing the ‘Dad’ in the film. This is her second celluloid venture after the Jyotika starrer June R that she made in 2005. The film failed to create a flutter at the box office despite having a good star cast and a decent storyline. Her second movie will be an emotional roller coaster with Mohanlal playing the title role. The plot revolves around a father whose love for his daughter creates problems in his relationship with her lover. The film also stars Salim Kumar, Harishri Asokan, Shweta Menon and Archana Kavi in pivotal roles. Despite its formal announcement, it is still unclear when the film will actually hit the floors as Mohanlal is reportedly busy working on multiple projects till the end of this year. He is currently working on Priyadarshan’s Arabiyum Ottakavum P Madhavan Nairum apart from Priyadarshan’s next Bollywood film Tezz.
