Malayalam superstar Mohanlal on Sunday took to his blog to announce his first directorial venture. The project has been titled Barroz and it will be a 3D film.
The actor said both children and grownups will enjoy Barroz which has a Portuguese backdrop. The film will be an adaptation of My Dear Kuttichathan director Jijo Punnoose’s story Barroz – Guardian of D’ Gama’s Treasure.
Mohanal added that the story revolves around Barroz who has been guarding Gama’s treasure for over 400 years and he will hand over the treasure to only the true successors of Gama. What happens when a kid cross paths with Barroz forms the crux of the film.
While Mohanlal will play the titular role in Barroz, the film will also feature many international actors.
The actor also revealed that the film will be shot in Goa. He added the scouting for locations has been completed.
