Amitabh Bachchan has been approached to play Mohanlal’s father in an upcoming Malayalam film. The actor is being considered for the film Odiyan, directed by ad filmmaker Sreekumar. The movie will be filmed entirely in 3D.
This is the first Malayalam film that Amitabh and Mohanlal will work on together. They’ve previously shared screen-space for movies such as Kandahar and Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag.
According to Malayalam folklore, ‘odiyan’ refers to a person performing black magic. Reports indicate that this Mohanlal film of the same name could involve some black magic elements as well.
Actors Prakash Raj, Manju Warrier will play pivotal roles in the project.
At present, Amitabh is busy shooting for Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3 while Mohanlal is working on his Major Ravi film 1971.
