Malayalam superstar Mohanlal is currently in the USA overseeing the post-production work of his upcoming movie, Barroz.
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal took a break from his hectic schedule and met the legendary singer KJ Yesudas during his recent trip to the USA. The actor shared a picture of himself with Yesudas, expressing joy and gratitude for the opportunity to meet him at his American residence.
"At the residence of Gana Gandharvan. Happy to see my Dasettan at his home in America," wrote Mohanlal while sharing the photos from the meeting.
On the career front, Mohanlal is currently in the USA overseeing the post-production work of his upcoming movie, Barroz.
Recently, he shared an update about the film, revealing that he has collaborated with a Hollywood studio to perfect the movie's soundscape. "Watching Barroz at Sony Studios Hollywood with Mark Kilian and Jonathan Miller for the fine-tuning of music and sound," said Mohanlal.
Barroz holds a special place in Mohanlal's career as it marks his directorial debut. This fantasy drama is not just any film; it's his dream project that he has been passionate about for a long time. Mohanlal is also seemingly going the extra mile to ensure that the movie gets a grand release worldwide.
The film is an adaptation of the novel by filmmaker-writer Jijo Punnoose with the same title. The narrative revolves around Barroz, a mythical character, who has been safeguarding Vasco da Gama’s treasure for over four centuries, awaiting the arrival of Gama's true successor.
Billed as a children's fantasy drama, Barroz promises to be a visual delight and will be presented in 3D. Besides directing it, Mohanlal has also essayed the lead role in it. It also stars Guru Somasundaram, Cesar Lorente Raton, Ignacio Mateos, and Kallirroi Tziafeta.
While Barroz was initially expected to hit cinemas last December, the release was delayed. The movie is reportedly gearing up for a worldwide release in late March.
Mohanlal's last appearance was in director Lijo Jose Pellissery's recent period epic, Malaikottai Vaaliban. The movie, released in January amid much anticipation, faced initial poor reviews from fans, affecting its box office potential.
Malaikottai Vaaliban narrates the tale of a mythical warrior with superhuman strengths and his grand-scale battle exploits. Alongside Mohanlal, the film features Danish Sait, Sonalee Kulkarni, Hareesh Peradi, and Katha Nandi in pivotal roles.
