Mohanlal is a happy man. He has completed Mahasamudram which will be his Onam release. He is having a dream run at the Kerala box-office- Naran, Thanmatra, Rasathantram and now Vadakkumnathan. All of them were liked by fans, critics and family audience which is a rare happening.

Now Mohanlal is going to do a film which was originally written for Mammootty! He has given priority dates to writer-director P.T.Kunju Mohammed’s new off-beat film titled Paradesi for which shooting will start from June 19 in Ottapalam.

According to Mohanlal: “It is a very good script. I play Valiyakathu Moosa, a man who come from Karachi in Pakistan during partition and settles in Malappuram . But even after 50 years of Independence, Moosa does not get an Indian passport and is treated and referred to as a Pakistani!”

Kunju Mohammed plans to chronicle the life and times of Moosa from the 35 years to 80. Paradesi is indeed a challenging role for Mohanlal and there will be three heroines in the film. The cast will also include Sreenivasan and Vijayaraghavan in supporting roles.
