Superstar Mohanlal is set to begin filming his directorial debut, Barozz, in March, cinematographer-filmmaker Santosh Sivan announced on Sunday.

The film is billed as a big-budget 3D fantasy project and would reportedly feature an international cast, with actors from Spain, Portugal, Ghana and America.

Sivan took to Twitter and wrote, “Starting ”Barozz” in March with Mohanlal in director”s chair.” The film is written by director Jijo Punnoose, best known for his 1984 Malayalam fantasy film, My Dear Kuttichathan, titled Chhota Chetan in Hindi.

In October last year, the 57-year-old cinematographer had announced joining the project. Sivan has shot acclaimed films like Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se, Raavan and Rajinikanth’s 2020 action drama Darbar.

“With two icons. Teaming up to showcase the best of south indian talent internationally Barros Mohan Lal’s debut directorial with an outstanding cast to aid Jijo Punnose script (My Dear Kuttichathan) in 3D,” Sivan had tweeted.

Mohanlal, 60, is currently seen in Drishyam 2, streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The Jeethu Joseph-directed sequel chronicles the struggle of Georgekutty, played by Mohanlal, and his family who come under suspicion when the son of the Inspector General of Police gets killed.
