The makers of the upcoming Vineeth Sreenivasan directorial released the poster on the young actor’s birthday
With a camera in hand, a wink and a smile, Pranav Mohanlal seems to channel his dad and superstar Mohanlal’s avatar in Chithram in the latest character poster unveiled by the makers of Vineeth Sreenivasan’s Hridayam.
The poster was released on Pranav’s birthday today through his social media page. The actor captioned the image, “A project that is extremely close to my heart.” Hridayam, which also has Kalyani Priyadarshan and Darshana Rajendran, is touted to be a slice-of-life romantic drama. The movie was slotted for an Onam release last year, but the pandemic lockdown delayed the film’s shoot in March.
Vineeth and team had shot 50% of the film in March 2020, with Pranav and Darshana in Kerala, and were set to begin Kalyani’s portions in Chennai when the lockdown was announced. The team, however, did complete the shoot earlier this year and had also begun the post production.
Vineeth, who also shared the poster on his social media page, wrote that there is so much he wants to say about Appu (Pranav) but he will wait until the movie comes out and people see it.
Last year, the film’s producer Visakh Subramaniam had said that he received multiple offers from OTT platforms to release the film on streaming services, but both Pranav and Vineeth had supported him in his decision to make it a theatrical release. The duo reportedly also decided not to take their remuneration till the movie releases.
Earlier, this week the team had also released the character posters of Kalyani and Darshana’s characters. While Hridayam’s release date is yet to be announced, industry insiders are betting on the Malayalam film to bring back audiences to theatres.
