While Mohanlal might be busy with his directorial debut Barroz, the shoot of Vysakh’s Monster is progressing full swing in Kochi. The actor has reportedly finished his portions in the investigative thriller, which has him teaming up with director Vysakh and scriptwriter Udaykrishna after Pulimurugan.

The latest poster of the movie, which Mohanlal unveiled on January 1, promised that the movie wasn’t just an intense thriller as the first look revealed. The poster had Mohanlal’s Lucky Singh dancing in a room filled with balloons, wearing an apron and a turban.

In an exclusive interview with OTTplay, Mohanlal talked about collaborating with Vysakh for the movie and how it was different from their previous venture Pulimurugan. ““It’s got a different concept that hasn’t been seen a lot in Malayalam. Monster is a crime-thriller but the second half has a lot of unexpected twists,” said Mohanlal, about the film that also has Lakshmi Manchu, Sudev Nair and Honey Rose.

The superstar also clarified that the movie has not yet been slotted for an OTT release. “We will take a call on the release of Monster only after gauging the pandemic situation and its impact on theatres. As of now, we have not signed any agreement for Monster or Alone’s OTT release,” said the actor.

Mohanlal’s next OTT release, meanwhile, will be the much-awaited Bro Daddy, which is directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran. The movie is expected to drop on January 26 on Disney+ Hotstar, even though the makers are yet to officially announce its release date.

Mohanlal plays John Kattadi in the feel-good entertainer that has Prithviraj essaying his son Eesho and Meena portraying his wife Annamma. The movie, which also has Kalyani Priyadarshan, Lalu Alex, Kaniha, Soubin Shahir and Unni Mukundan, will be Mohanlal's second direct-to-OTT release after Drishyam 2 last year.
