The actor is hopeful that things will get better soon, as the barriers between the film industries are slowly blurring.

Interestingly, Unni Mukundan also extensively spoke about his dream project, an army-themed film, in his chat with TNIE. The actor-producer revealed that he also plans to bankroll the project under his home banner, Unni Mukundan Films. According to the Meppadiyan actor, another major star will also be a part of the untitled project if it is being made on a massive scale. He confirmed that the movie will be primarily made in Malayalam but will be dubbed in all major Indian languages. More updates on the project are expected to be out very soon.

Interestingly, he also added that it is his best film yet.

Gadharva Jr is a complete fantasy film with superhero elements, while Marco is an all-out action film. According to the actor, Get Set Baby is a fun film that narrates the subject of IVF from a man’s perspective. Garudan, on the other hand, is a rural subject.
