Mohanlal, the Malayalam superstar has a very exciting lineup of projects in both Malayalam and other languages. He is currently busy with the shooting of Ram, the upcoming Jeethu Joseph directorial in the UK. After wrapping up the project, Mohanlal is expected to kickstart the shooting of L2 Empuraan, the sequel to the 2019-released blockbuster Lucifer, which is helmed by Prithviraj Sukumaran. The actor’s other two highly anticipated films, Monster and Alone, are expected to release in October, this year.

Meanwhile, rumours regarding Mohanlal’s collaboration with acclaimed filmmaker Lijo Jose Pellissery are doing rounds on social media for the last couple of days. If the reports are to be believed, the complete actor is planning to team up with the Jallikattu director for a commercial entertainer. Mohanlal is expected to start shooting for the highly anticipated project in November 2022, after he returns from the UK. The untitled project is reportedly bankrolled by John Mary Creative. The makers are expected to officially launch the project by the first week of October.

Coming to Mohanlal’s acting career, Monster, which marks Mohanlal’s second collaboration with Pulimurugan director Vysakh, is expected to get a grand theatrical release. Alone, which is helmed by senior filmmaker Shaji Kailas, is an experimental single-artist film. The highly anticipated project is reportedly gearing up for an OTT release. Mohanlal also finished shooting for Olavum Theeravum, the segment directed by Priyadarshan for the upcoming Netflix anthology web series based on MT Vasudevan Nair’s short stories.

Lijo Jose Pellissery, on the other hand, is busy with the post-production works of his upcoming project Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam. Mammootty essayed the lead role in the film, which is touted to be a satirical drama. The megastar has also produced the film, under his home banner Mammootty Kampany. The filmmaker was also originally supposed to direct a segment from Netflix’s MT Vasudevan Nair anthology series, starring Mammootty. But he later backed out from the project due to his busy schedule, and Ranjith Balakrishnan replaced him as the director.
