Mohanlal turns farmer

Onscreen, that is. He will play a rustic in his next project with Sathyan Anthikad

Veteran actor Mohanlal finally seems to have got his act right. After doing a slew of brainless comedies and inane action movies, Mohanlal is finally going back to doing what he does best: playing a believable character.

Fans of Mohanlal will be glad to know that in Sathyan Anthikad’s next project, their idol will play a farmer. Or rather an urban resident who settles at a remote village and becomes a farmer. Veteran actress Sheela will play his mother. Mohanlal’s character is called Ajayan and the film’s shoot has already begun in Palakkad. Asokan, Innocent, Biju Menon and Padmapriya form the rest of the cast. Music is composed by Ilaiyaraja.
