Both the films are currently being shot in Hyderabad and the Malayalam actor is part of Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan
Babu Antony is putting his time in India to good use. The actor, who got back from the US to shoot Ponniyin Selvan, recently also made it a point to catch up with his friends from the Malayalam film industry. Babu posted a photo of him along with Prithviraj and Mohanlal, who are shooting for Bro Daddy.
Before you assume that the veteran action star is also part of Prithviraj’s directorial, Babu cleared he was just visiting the team as he was also shooting in Hyderabad. In a social media post, the actor said that it was a day off from filming Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus, Ponniyin Selvan, and so he decided to visit Mohanlal and Prithviraj, who were shooting in another part of the city.
The actor also mentioned that he caught up with Kaniha, who is also part of Bro Daddy’s cast, and the production controller Sidhu Panackal. The actor had also reminisced about the days of shooting the Bharathan directorial Vaisali.
Incidentally, Vaisali is one of the few period films that Babu Antony has been part of, until Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan. The actor had joined the team of the big budget film last week in Pondicherry and had also shot with Karthi and Vikram. The film’s team has now moved to Hyderabad for its final leg of shooting.
The movie, based on Kalki’s novel, also has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayaram, Lal, Prabhu, Trisha, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Venkat Prabhu and Rahman as part of the cast. Meanwhile, Bro Daddy is also a multi-starrer that has Mohanlal, Prithviraj, Murali Gopy, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Soubin Shahir, Meena and Kaniha.
