Mohanlal-Priyadarshan team up for Gitanjali- a spin-off of Manichithrathazhu

The shooting of the film is set to start on July 5 and 90% of the film will be canned in Trivandrum which, incidentally, was also the location of the duo's first film, Thiranottam.

Mohanlal and his all-time favourite director Priyadarsan are coming together for their latest film Gitanjali. This will be one of the exciting projects to come in Malayalam cinema as the film will be a spin-off of one of Mollywood’s biggest hits, Manichithrathazhu released in 1993.

Director Priyadarshan has clarified that his film ‘Geethanjali’ is not a sequel to ‘Manichitrathazhu’. But it would have the character that Mohanlal played in the Fazil film – Dr. Sunny. This time Dr Sunny would embark on a new mission and he would have spirit and supernatural elements for company. The film would be a psycho-thriller, reveals the maker.

The shooting of the film is set to start on July 5 and 90% of the film will be canned in Trivandrum which, incidentally, was also the location of the duo’s first film, Thiranottam. Other shooting locations include Dubai and New Delhi.

The film will also have returning cast members Innocent and KB Ganesh Kumar apart from new additions Madhu, Siddique and Harisree Asokan. The team is apparently yet to finalise the female lead. However sources indicate that the lead actress will be debutant.  Script is written by veteran Dennis Joseph.

Earlier, the makers planned to shot the movie using 3D holographic technique. However, the plan was dropped. “It’s not just because of the cost of production; the technology is time consuming and the filming would take much longer than can be afforded,” said a source close to the production floor.

The last movie they done together was ‘Arabiyum Ottakavum P.Madhavan Nairum in Oru Marubhoomi Kadha ‘ in 2011. Mohanlal-Priyadarshan, one of the most successful duos in the Malayalam film industry gave over 40 films in the past three decade.
