UAE-based businessman Dr. BR Shetty is bankrolling Mohanlal’s Randamoozham, probably the biggest film ever made in Asia, at a budget of Rs 1000 crore. Though a section of the audience has been skeptical about the project and wondered whether this film will ever take off considering its whooping productions cost, all the doubts have now been put to rest by Dr Shetty who took to Twitter to announce the status of the film.
Shetty, in a series of tweets, stated that the film would have artists from all across the globe and its shooting will commence in July 2019. The pre-production work is nearing its completion, and the official launch of the film will take place very soon in a grand function.
Randamoozham is based on MT Vasudevan Nair’s book of the same name, and the cinematic adaptation will be directed by VA Shrikumar Menon. The film is based on the Indian epic Mahabharata, and will star Mohanlal in the role of Bhima. The makers have decided to shoot the film in 2 parts, with both being released within a gap of 90 days in eight Indian languages apart from an English.
