Malayalam superstar Mohanlal on Wednesday announced his new film, which will mark his reunion with director Shaji Kailas after a gap of more than a decade.

“It’s with great excitement and happiness that I announce my next project with #ShajiKailas which starts rolling in Oct 2021. This film scripted by Rajesh Jayram and produced by @antonypbvr under the banner of @aashirvadcine has me and Shaji getting together after 12 long years (sic),” Mohanlal tweeted.

Shaji Kailas is known for his unapologetic, out-and-out masala entertainers. And he has directed Mohanlal in seven films in the past, including popular movies such as Aaram Thamburan and Narasimham. The actor-director duo’s last collaboration was Red Chillies, which came out in 2009.

Meanwhile, Mohanlal recently finished shooting for Bro Daddy, which is helmed by Prithviraj. “Done! #2ndDirectorial! It’s been such a joy to watch him have so much fun in front of the camera! Red heart Thank you cheta @Mohanlal #AnthonyPerumbavoor for having so much faith and conviction in me, thanks to a fantastic cast, and a superb crew! (sic),” Prithviraj had tweeted earlier this week.

Bro Daddy is Prithviraj’s second consecutive directorial outing with Mohanlal. He had earlier made his debut as a director with box office hit Lucifer, starring Mohanlal in the lead role.

Mohanlal is awaiting the release of his magnum opus Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham. The period drama, which has been delayed by more than a year, is written and directed by Priyadarshan.

Mohanlal’s Aaraattu, which is directed by B Unnikrishnan, is also getting ready to hit the screens soon.
