Alone is slated to hit the theatres by the second week of December, this year. The recently released official teaser of the movie won the internet and raised expectations over Shaji Kailas's film. 


Mohanlal is reuniting with the Drishyam director Jeethu Joseph for the upcoming action thriller Ram. The movie, which features the superstar as the titular character, Ram Mohan IPS, reportedly revolves around a chain of murders that happen in various parts of the world. Ram, which was put on the back burner due to the pandemic and lockdown, started rolling again in September, this year. The movie, which features Trisha Krishnan in the lead role, will be released in two parts.

Lijo Jose Pellissery's commercial entertainer

Mohanlal is finally joining hands with Lijo Jose Pellissery, one of the finest filmmakers in the industry, for a commercial entertainer. If the reports are to be believed, the movie features Mohanlal in the role of an aging wrestler, named Chembothu Simon. The untitled project will be widely shot at the various locations of Kerala, Rajasthan, and Andhra Pradesh. The title of the project, along with its first-look poster is expected to be revealed very soon.

L2: Empuraan

Mohanlal will soon reunite with actor-director Prithviraj Sukumaran for the sequel to their 2019-released blockbuster movie, Lucifer. The project, which is titled L2: Empuraan, is expected to go on floors by the first half of 2023. Mohanlal will reprise the famous character Stephen Nedumpilly aka Khuresh Ab'Ram in the movie, which is penned by Murali Gopy and produced by Antony Perumbavoor under the banner Aashirvad Cinemas. The pre-production works of L2: Empuraan is currently in progress.



The complete actor is set to make his directorial debut with Barroz, the highly anticipated 3D fantasy film.
