The movie, which is currently being shot in London, is touted to be a two-part action thriller
The cast list of director Jeethu Joseph’s Ram is swelling by the day. The latest to join the Mohanlal-starrer, which also has Trisha, Indrajith Sukumaran and Adil Hussain, is Malayalam actress Samyuktha Menon, who was last seen in Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Kaduva.
The actress has joined the team in London where the film began shooting its third schedule earlier this month. Samyuktha’s role was written into the script after the makers decided to scale up the project following the delay in shoot due to the pandemic restrictions.
Priyanka Nair, who had previously worked with Jeethu in Mohanlal’s 12th Man, has also been roped in in a pivotal role in the action thriller, which will be released in two parts next year. The movie had completed most of its Indian schedule in 2020 before the nationwide lockdown was announced. The film was then stalled for over two years, with both Mohanlal and Jeethu collaborating on movies such as Drishyam 2 and 12th Man.
Shoot of Ram had resumed in August with Indrajith, Mohanlal and Trisha completing a week-long schedule in Kochi, before the team headed out to the UK for its current shoot. The team are expected to wrap up the UK schedule by the end of this month and then head to Tunisia and Morocco to complete the rest of the portions of the big-budget film.
This will be the first time Samyuktha is teaming up with Mohanlal. The film has the actor playing the role of a RAW officer while Trisha essays the role of a doctor. The movie, which is reportedly loaded with action scenes, is touted to be the biggest project in Jeethu’s career.
The filmmaker, meanwhile, is also set to work with Mohanlal in the upcoming third instalment of Drishyam that was confirmed by its producer Antony Perumbavoor at an awards show recently. Jeethu has also completed the shoot of Asif Ali-starrer Kooman and is set to direct Prithviraj in a thriller next year.
