Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in his Facebook has said “I shall be doing a Tamil Movie along with Mr. Vijay scheduled to start by May”.
It confirms the news first broken by sify.com of Mohanlal doing the Nesan directed Vijay actioner Jilla, produced by RB Chowdhary.
Mohanlal has given priority 20 days bulk call sheet for Jilla starting from May 2, 2013. During this period he will complete the first schedule of the film and will join again for the second schedule tentatively somewhere in August.
Mohanlal was peeved with Arun Vaidyanathan for jumping the gun and announcing that he is doing Peruchaazhy with him in Malayalam. As per sources Arun is sure to dub Peruchaazhy in Tamil.
The Malayalam superstar did not want that to be his re-entry into Tamil.
Mohanlal wants Jilla to be his first film in Tamil after the disastrous Nasser directed Popcorn released way back in 2003. He was also seen along with Kamal Haasan in Unnaipol Oruvan in 2009 and is now hoping that Jilla will give him an all new image in Tamil.
