Mohanlal to play the role of Bhima
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has confirmed that he will play Bhima in the screen adaptation of veteran Malayalam writer MT Vasudevan Nair’s Jnanpeeth Award-winning novel Randamoozham (Second Turn).

Based on the Indian epic The Mahabharata, the novel tells the story from Bhima’s perspective, the second of the Pandavas.

The film has already created a buzz, thanks to its massive budget. A UAE-based Indian businessman will invest Rs 1,000 crore (USD 150 million) to produce the film, which will be India’s biggest ever motion picture. This magnum opus is being directed by noted ad man and advertising film maker VA Shrikumar Menon. It will be produced in two parts and is scheduled to go on the floors by September 2018 for a release in early 2020. The second part will be released within 90 days of the first.

“The film will be shot primarily in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu and will be dubbed into major Indian languages and leading foreign languages,” a release from a company owned by serial entrepreneur BR Shetty, who is backing the film, said.

The film will be a coming together of the crème de la crème of Indian and global cinema in terms of cast and crew. The technical crew would include some of the great names in world cinema, including some Academy Award winners. The cast would have the best of talents from Indian cinema, as well as some big names from Hollywood. “This film will have an identity across continents, with their representatives donning the myriad characters in The Mahabharata! A global team led by an internationally renowned casting director will handpick the cast,” the release said.
