Malayalam superstar Mohanlal, who is basking in the success of Oppam, on Friday took his fans by surprise by posting a picture of himself as spiritual guru Osho Rajnish. Lalettan captioned the picture thus: “In disguise of the limitless man – The Ocean of Love.”
While his admiration for Osho is no secret, the timing of the picture has created quite a buzz. He has shared the picture a day after a major announcement regarding his next project Lucifer, which will be directed by Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran. The look left his fans wondering whether his new avatar has anything to do with it.
While some news reports claim the picture has nothing to do with Lalettan’s just announced ‘Lucifer,’ others asserted it is. However, what we can say is the actor’s fans are thrilled to see him as Osho and have been widely sharing the picture on social media.
In what could be termed as this year’s major announcement from the Malayalam film industry, Mohanlal and actor Prithviraj announced on Thursday that the duo will be doing a movie together. The film also marks the debut of Prithviraj as a director.
“Here I have a big news for my million splendid audience about my upcoming project,” he posted on his Facebook page with a picture of himself with a cigarette. He, however, didn’t forget to put a statutory warning below saying “Cigarettes are injurious to health.”

Coming back to ‘Lucifer’, he said, “A big budget movie from Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas, which sees collaboration of two icons of Malayalam film industry behind the camera for the first time, who are also distinguished for their uniqueness … Prithviraj son of my dearest Sukumarettan doing his directorial debut and Murali Gopy son of our Gopiettan penning story and script … And the movie’s name is ‘LUCIFER’.”
Meanwhile, Mohanlal’s upcoming film ‘Pulimurugan’ will hit the screens on October 7.
