While Prithviraj Sukumaran’s second directorial Bro Daddy didn’t drop on an OTT platform as a Christmas release, as rumoured, the team will be releasing the first look poster from the Mohanlal-starrer ahead of the new year.
Prithviraj and Mohanlal announced through their social media pages that the film’s first look poster will be out at 4pm on December 29. The movie is rumoured to release directly on Disney+ Hotstar.
Scripted by Bibin Malieckal and Sreejith N, the movie is a feel-good entertainer that also has Kalyani Priyadarshan, Meena, Jagadish, Mallika Sukumaran, Unni Mukundan, Soubin Shahir and Kaniha. Bro Daddy has Mohanlal playing the character of Prithviraj’s father.
In an earlier interview with OTTplay, Mohanlal had said that the movie is visually delightful and the team has spared no expense in making the movie stand out despite it being an OTT release. He was also hopeful that since the duo had earlier teamed up for Lucifer, that would also help in the recall value of their current venture and make audiences across India stream the movie when it releases next year.
Mohanlal, meanwhile, is currently working on his directorial debut Barroz: Guardian of D’Gama’s Treasure. The film, which has him in the titular role, is a 3D children’s fantasy that has Santosh Sivan as its cinematographer.
Prithviraj was earlier attached to the movie and had also shot a few scenes. But with the pandemic bringing the shoot to a standstill in April, the makers had to recast a lot of characters. This also meant that Prithviraj had to opt out as he couldn’t spare dates for Barroz due to his other commitments that include Blessy’s Aadujeevitham, Shaji Kailas’ Kaduva and Dijo Jose Antony’s Jana Gana Mana. Prithviraj is also set to work on a webseries, that he will also be directing.
