Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal has signed to play the lead in Tamil director Arun Vaidyanathan’s first film in Malayalam titled Peruchaazhi (Bandicoot) .
The US based Arun Vaidyanathan’s claim to fame is the critically acclaimed Tamil film Achchamundu Achchamundu, starring Prasanna and Sneha.
Mohanlal read the script of the hilarious Peruchaazhi set primarily in US and agreed to do the film as he was bowled over by Arun’s script.
Arun Vaidyanathan said : “ I’m a big fan of Lalettan. There is nobody who can do comedy better than him. He will fit into the role perfectly.”
The principal shooting will start from the end of this year as soon as the pre- production and visa formalities are done. Interestingly, the lead female character will be played by an American actress for which the search is going on.
Arun Vaidyanathan plans to start his next Tamil film for which the official announcement will be made by April.
