Fans, who have been eagerly waiting for an update of the much-awaited sequel of Lucifer, are understandably thrilled.
Empuraan's much-delayed shoot
The shooting of Empuraan was delayed due to the pandemic and after Prithiviraj suffered an accident on the set of his other film, Vilayath Buddha . The shooting of the film was supposed to begin in August, but an unexpected injury to Prithviraj forced the team to change the dates at the last moment.
According to reports, only one day of the shooting take place in Delhi. The team will next move to Ladakh to shoot there for a month. Mohanlal will return to Kerala after completing a day's shooting in Delhi. The project reportedly has an extensive schedule in various places in Kerala and other major Indian cities like Hyderabad and Mumbai.
