The movie has a huge star cast featuring Unni Mukundan, Anusree, Saiju Kurup, Aditi Ravi, Veena Nandakumar, Sshivada, Chandunath and Leona Lishoy
After multiple shuffling of dates, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has finally joined the sets of Jeethu Joseph’s 12th Man in Idukki to shoot his portions for the mystery thriller.
The actor was initially set to complete his portions in the Jeethu Joseph directorial before he moved to Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Bro Daddy. The film’s sets were erected in Idukki.
However, the second wave of COVID-19 in Kerala meant that outdoor shoots were restricted in the State and this forced the production company to go ahead with Bro Daddy first in Hyderabad.
Mohanlal had completed his portions for Prithviraj’s feel-good movie, which is scripted by Sreejith N and Bibin Maliekal, earlier this month. Bro Daddy, which has Mohanlal and Prithviraj playing a father-son duo, had an ensemble cast featuring Kalyani Priyadarshan, Kaniha, Meena, Murali Gopy and Unni Mukundan.
Incidentally, Unni is also part of 12th Man, which again is a multi-starrer that has Aditi Ravi, Priyanka Nair, Sshivada, Anu Mohan, Chandunath, Saiju Kurup and Leona Lishoy among others.
12th Man, which is scripted by KR Krishna Kumar, marks Jeethu’s fourth collaboration with Mohanlal after Drishyam, Drishyam 2 and the incomplete action-thriller Ram.
Meanwhile, Mohanlal is expected to join the shoot of Odiyan director VA Shrikumar’s film Mission Konkan next, which reportedly also has Randeep Hooda. The superstar has also signed up a ‘mass’ entertainer with director Shaji Kailas that will begin shooting from October.
Mohanlal’s upcoming releases include Priyadarshan’s magnum opus Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham and B Unnikrishnan’s ‘mass’ entertainer Aaraattu – both of which are eyeing a theatrical release by the end of this year.
